Patricia and Bruce’s Joyful Wedding: February 9 1968

These found photos take us February 9, 1968. The Boone Memorial Presbyterian Church in Caldwell, Idaho, is hosting Bruce Papapietro and Patricia Hoover’s wedding. The terrific Jordan Smith captions the photos and tells us: “Pat and Bruce still reside in Caldwell, Idaho. My grandmother, who turns 95 this year, and all of my mother siblings live in Southern Idaho, except Paul who lives in Southern California.”
