The Man Registry: Beware of Wedding Photos - They Last Forever

by Azure

About The Man Registry We’ve all seen photos from our parents’ wedding and asked ourselves, “What the hell was Dad thinking with that haircut or facial hair?” Sadly, we don’t always realize at the time that pictures last forever.
