Jeb Bush and his wife Columba are celebrating their 41st wedding anniversary Monday, but they’ll have more memories than photos.
The former Florida governor and presumptive GOP presidential candidate marked the occasion on social media by posting the lone photo that survived an amateur photography error committed by the groom’s brother.
“This is the only picture from our wedding,” Bush wrote on Facebook. “The photographer, my brother Marvin, accidentally rerolled from a Frank Zappa concert. Thankfully, my mom took one photo with a Kodak.”
In a letter to his sister, Doro, published in her book My Father, My President: A Personal Account of the Life of George H. W. Bush, Marvin Bush, who was in high school at the time, explained the mishap:
Family matriarch Barbara Bush had the good sense to take one photo on her Kodak pocket lnstamatic, Marvin writes, and that is the only photo of the day that remains.
