Graham Wedding Memorabilia

August 1, 2014

Ruth Bell Graham handmade her own dress, as well as her trousseau, for her August 13, 1943 wedding to Billy Graham. She filled this scrapbook with memorabilia from their wedding and honeymoon to Boone, North Carolina, including a handful of rice thrown by guests, and a piece of the cereal box from their first breakfast together.

Later, she would cut pieces of her wedding veil off to trim the bassinets of all five children as they were born.
