The couple from Nebraska, who are in their 80’s now, celebrated their 60 years of marriage on August 21!

To celebrate their many years of love and adoration for each other, they decided to make their anniversary quite special.

They initially thought of simply taking a photo of themselves together, one that they could send along with letters to families and friends for Christmas. So, they asked photographer Katie Autry to do that for them.

But then, Lucille suddenly thought of a great idea for a photoshoot: wearing their wedding outfits! So they dusted them off from storage and gave it a go!

The couple still looked astonishingly gorgeous in them. Needless to say, the shoot turned out to be amazing and magical!

Lucille’s lace gown was made in 1960, but it still fit perfectly, while Marvin was so handsome wearing his suit.

They danced, held hands, embraced, and kissed. It was truly a magical moment spent in a nearby field from their home. It felt like they were transported back to their twenties when they got married in a Lutheran church!

The lovebirds met in 1959 as co-teachers in a school where Marvin, also an Army veteran, was the only male faculty member who was still single.

“We were the gossip of the school,” Lucille recalled. “By May, we were engaged.”

Their love bore three children, six sweet grandchildren, and four adorable great-grandchildren — who are apparently the reason for their happy married life!

Marvin and Lucille shared further tips about keeping a relationship strong such as “be kind,”  “work hard,” and “think before you speak.”

Katie admitted it was one of the most amazing photoshoots she’s ever had.

“It was an absolute honor to be able to capture the love between such a special couple,” she said.

“While shooting their session, it was easy to tell just how much they care for one another. I had tears in my eyes behind my camera while shooting. They are such an amazing example of true love standing the test of time. Their session is one I’ll never forget!”
