Wedding Photos: 'My Parents Were Awesome'

No matter who, what or where our parents are now, they were probably awesome at some point in time.

That's the premise behind one of our favorite blogs, My Parents Were Awesome. It's a user-submitted collection of old photos of parents--in all of their 70's 'stache, war bride, high school nerd glory.

We scoured the blog's archives to find the very best parental wedding photos and came up with 12 stunners. Click through the slideshow below to see our picks, then add a photo of your own folks' big day. Aren't they awesome?
