There are a lot of ways to celebrate an anniversary. When it comes to celebrating your 60th, though, you’ve probably exhausted most of those ways. And then there’s one Nebraska couple who found an adorably heartwarming way to celebrate, with a photoshoot wearing the same exact clothes they got married in six decades prior.
Anniversaries are a big deal. But when it comes to the big ones, you gotta zig when you usually zag. And that’s why the photoshoot is a money move, it’s the perfect way to capture a special moment (and the truly heartwarming ones go viral, like the daughter of a fallen soldier with her dad’s unit).
So when Lucille and Marvin Stone decided to celebrate 60 years of marriage with a photoshoot wearing the same formal wear they wore down that aisle six decades ago, it was bound to work. Especially with an awesome photographer. Nebraska photographer Katie Autry worked with the couple on the shoot, and she said it was one of her favorite sessions to date.
I mean come on, how cute are these pictures?
Lucille even made her dress herself, because that was back in the times when people did things like that. Autry asked the still happy couple what their secret was for a long-lasting marriage and she shared their answer on her Facebook post.
They both said, “work hard, be kind to one another, think before you speak, rely on each other’s strengths to overcome your weakness, and stay strong in your faith.”
Not bad advice to live by just in general, honestly. And it’s tough to argue with the result, as the years speak for themselves.
