Eddie and Donna on their wedding day.

Eddie and Donna Roberts recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year. They were married on September 8, 1973, after meeting as undergrads at the University of Tennessee. The couple, together with their children, Shelley McLay, Leigh Roberts, and Cackie Walker, hosted a family celebration at Giovanni’s Restaurant in Nashville. The hosts and their daughters were joined by their spouses, friends, and nine of their ten grandchildren.

The family shared stories, toasts, a great meal, and took to the dance floor to celebrate the couple and their fifty years of dedication and love. Congratulations, Eddie and Donna!
