All Souls Church Unitarian February 25th, 2013
My grandparents (on my mom’s side) were married on Wednesday, April 26, 1950 at All Souls Unitarian Church at 16th and Harvard NW. I’ve gone by that intersection a million times, but never gave much thought to it, not really knowing the significance of the spot until I recently saw some of their wedding/honeymoon pictures and albums.
So today mom and I took a trip over there specifically to walk around and check it out and take some pictures. It’s a really neat space inside, simple and elegant and bright, with an incredible pipe organ. Since their wedding was in the middle of the week, with only two of their friends as witnesses, we were wondering if they were wed inside the chapel itself, or maybe in a smaller side room? Or even outdoors? Mom is following up later with their historian to see if we can get any more info about it. Either way, it was interesting to be in the same space today, 63 years later, and imagine.
