Silver Anniversary
Charles Hayden and Katherine Yost
June 13, 1999

We got together with family and friends to celebrate 25 years of marriage on June 13, 1999.  By good fortune, this day was also the 21st birthday of our son, Benjamin.

In the Victorian tradition, after the service everyone gathered outside the church.

And then we went around back to the party !

We asked everyone invited to contribute their favorite music, which we played during the party.
