Groom Allows Grandparents To Dance First At Wedding
Elaine and Morton are celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary, as Zachary informs guests. A blue sapphire, by the way, is the traditional gift for that special occasion. Zachary wishes that he and Samantha will be as happy as Elaine and Morton when they reach 65 years of marriage. Elaine responds, “How do you know?” Elaine is fiery and amusing!

Zachary continues by explaining that his grandparents never had their first dance at their wedding because his grandfather was sitting shiva at the time of their marriage.

Shiva is a Jewish custom that requires mourners (parents, siblings, spouses, or children) to refrain from celebrating, including dancing, for seven days. Morton’s mother died shortly before the ceremony, so he and Elaine were unable to share the first dance.

Zachary finally invites them to that special first dance, and they accept. They are a sophisticated couple, admired by a slew of burgundy-clad bridesmaids.

Elaine and Morton’s first dance may not have happened on time at their own wedding, and she may not have received a blue sapphire to match her long, navy gown. But one thing is certain: Elaine and Morton have made a million memories in their 65 years, and they have earned the love and respect of many!
