The Rev. and Mrs. A.G. “Bud” (Margie Rosenbalm) Branscomb of Blountville, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a 12-day Alaskan cruise and tour.

They met at Southeastern Bible college, Birmingham, Ala., and were married Aug. 3, 1963, in Bristol, Tenn., with Dr. Kyle Barr officiating.

Throughout their marriage they have served in various aspects of Christian ministry. Currently, the Rev. Branscomb is serving as pastor of Beidleman Presbyterian Church, Bristol.

They are the parents of Nancy Vineyard and husband Mark of Blountville; Charles Branscomb and wife Stephnie of Bristol, Tenn., and Marlisa Osborne Moura and husband Wallace of Bristol, Tenn. They have six granddaughters, six grandsons, four great-granddaughters and one great-grandson — all because these two people fell in love.
