A couple celebrated their 60th anniversary by posing for photos in the same formal attire they wore on the day they said “I do”.
Lucille and Marvin Stone of Kearney, Nebraska, tied the knot on August 21, 1960.
They met while teaching at the same high school.
To celebrate six decades of marriage, the couple contacted photographer Katie Autry and asked if she would photograph them in their original wedding outfits.
“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,” Autry said on Facebook.
“These two lovebirds even wore their original wedding attire for the session (Lucille made her dress)!”
“When I asked them both what their secret to a lasting marriage was they had the following advice:
- Work hard
- Be kind to one another
- Think before you speak
- Rely on each others strengths to overcome your weakness
- Stay strong in your faith”
“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!”
