A couple married for 60 years have decided to recreate their adorable wedding photos to celebrate their anniversary.
As per reports, Marvin and Lucille Stone were married in a small Lutheran Church in Sterling, Nebraska, back in 1960. This year they decided to mark that occasion with a glorious photoshoot.
Katie Autry was the photographer for the shoot, and said that it was one of the most rewarding projects she’s ever had the pleasure of working on.
88-year-old Marvin and his 81-year-old wife Lucille even wore their original outfits from 1960, which included the dress Lucille had handmade herself!
The joyous photos found their way to social media when Katie uploaded them to Facebook on August 20.
“I had the pleasure of working with Marvin and Lucille to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary . This may be one of my favorite sessions to date ! These two lovebirds even wore their original wedding attire for the session (Lucille made her dress)
“[…] What an amazing example these two are of true love standing the test of time. I am so glad to have met them, and honored to have captured these memories for them. Happy Anniversary Marvin and Lucille!
Katie went on to say that she’d asked the couple what their secret was to a long and happy marriage, to which they advised people to work hard, be kind to one another, think before you speak, rely on each others strengths to overcome your weakness and to stay strong in your faith.
Wow … it truly is stories like this that warm my heart despite all the negatives to be found in the world today. Marvin and Lucille are a stunning example of true love.
