Rocco Colicchio and Josephine Ferrara wed in New Jersey circa 1932. This picture is an original and in very good condition but for one little wrinkle (although I did take a picture of it again this week instead of scanning, so you can see lots of reflections off the glass). I love the lace detail of the bridesmaids' dresses, their stylish hats and the bride's veil. The two children on the ends are my Nana's youngest siblings--fraternal twins Concetta and Morris (and yes, this side of my family is Italian!).
Nana was the oldest of eight, and spent her life taking care of her family...first, helping her mother raise the other seven children in a tiny little house; then making a home for her husband, my mom and aunt; and finally, being the sweetest and most wonderful grandmother who would do anything to make her grandchildren happy. I have so many fond memories of her cooking and knitting her way through life. She died in 2002 at the age of 91.
