Some of the most wonderful wedding ceremonies involve the bucking of certain age-old traditions. In a perfect example, bride Christine Quinn asked her grandmother Betty to be one of her four bridesmaids, and the delightful 89-year-old eventually accepted. When Christine first posed the question, Betty said,
"Are you sure? Why would you want an old lady in your bridal party? All of your bridesmaids are young and pretty, why would you want me?"
But once her granddaughter assured Betty that she was certain she wanted her as a member of the wedding party, Betty's apprehension turned to enthusiasm. The result was not only great pictures, but a meaningful ceremony that obviously emphasized the importance of family over fashion.
