What He Found In His Grandparents' House Sent Him On A Journey Back In Time

There are endless treasures to be found in our grandparents’ attics. While digging through these family heirlooms and artifacts, we’re lucky if we come across a few tattered photos from the war, or a chipped teacup from an old collection. Although substantial finds may be few and far between, these relics help us piece together the stories of our lives.

But one man hit the jackpot one day while rummaging through his grandparents’ things. What he discovered sent him on a stunning journey back in time.

He found a perfectly preserved film of his grandparents’ wedding that dates back to 1944.

Although this footage was captured decades ago, the affection shown by these two lovebirds is timeless.

Grandparents are often viewed as the pillars of the family. They’re seen as sage, wizened monuments to everything that younger generations stand for. It’s rare that we get to peek behind the curtain and marvel at who they were before we were born, and now that this man has stepped back in time, he will be able to move forward with a whole new perspective on who he is and where he came from.

My Grandparents Wedding :: 16mm from 1944

*This film is original raw footage and not intended for commercial or profit*



My great-grandfather had one of the early consumer 16mm camera's... the Cine Kodak from the 1930's. The film itself, though scratched is in amazing condition. Notice the incredible color of the Kodachrome. Absolutely pristine and sharp.



This film was transferred back in 2009 by Spectra Film and Video. The more recent footage of my grandparents was shot on Super 8mm on a Canon 814 Velvia 50D in 2006.



This footage was all shot in and around Portland in the 1930's and 40's. My grandparents grew up off MLK Blvd.
