Harold and Grace Sanford - Their Lives Were Music


Wedding and Honeymoon





Grace Krick married Harold Sanford on June 6, 1931.

Her bridesmaids were her friends from college.

Grace’s wedding gown was as fashionable then, as it would

be today, long, flowing and beautiful !

Harold looked dapper in his tux. 

- A true love story -

Music brought them together and continued to be the 

thread that would bind them together for a lifetime.

Harold and Grace’s scenic honeymoon included a trip to Washington D.C.  They viewed the monuments there. They stopped in Virginia. This is where they toured Mt. Mitchell, Mt. Vernon and adventured through the Endless Caverns.

Grace received best wishes and an invitation  from noted musician, writer, teacher and good friend, Mrs. Crosby Adams. Harold and Grace stayed with Juliette at her retreat in Montreat, North Carolina. Every summer she held classes for piano teachers. It is unclear if Harold and Grace took advantage of the classes on this trip.

From the tone of the letter –Juliette may have been an adopted or substitute mother for Grace. For more information on this great lady (Mrs. Crosby Adams) go to
  Wednesday Music Club.

The honeymoon comes to a close as they visit Niagara Falls in NYC. Harold and Grace enjoyed going to plays at the Radio City Music Hall. They saw ” Victoria Regina” with Helen Hayes and Vincent Price.

Harold and Grace arrived home to a dinner prepared in their honor.
