Jim and Shirley Bridgman celebrated 50 years of marriage on April 11! A party was beautifully put on by their daughter and her family, Tim, Melody and Angel Carpita.
Jim and Shirley grew up in Bellevue and Woodinville, and have called North Bend their home since 1982, raising 3 children (LoriJeanne, Melody and Travis) there.
Their secrets to marital longevity?
#1 – Jesus
#2 – 110 percent/110 percent relationship
Festivities at the celebration included tables decorated with themes from childhood adventures to pet monkeys and exchange students to mission trips.
The cake was a delicious re-creation of the Maltese cross Jim’s dad had made.
Photos were displayed, and music was played from the 50’s to the present. Special memories were shared from both the couple and guests.
