The 9/11 Wedding Photo

For 13 years, assistant professor Elizabeth Stringer Keefe would post the above 9/11 wedding photo found at Ground Zero on her social media accounts. Together with a group of dedicated friends, they would do this every year on 11 September, hoping to reunite the photo with its owner.

She told Mashable, “It’s a beautiful, joyful moment captured in time and it was such a contrast to what I saw at Ground Zero, which was still burning when I was there. Keefe continued, “So, if it had a relationship to 9/11, I wanted to keep it safe until I could return it to its owner. There’s so much beauty and happiness in the photo that I just felt committed to the task.”
