An 88-year-old man and his 81-year-old wife have celebrated their anniversary in a romantic yet exceptional way 60 years after their wedding.

The octogenarians commemorated their wedding day through a photoshoot that saw them dusting off their original wedding attire and wearing them.

He embraced his wife with so much love

Marvin and Lucille who are from Nebraska, USA held each other in a tight embrace and smiled warmly as they thought of all the decades they have been together.

Marvin who had previously promised to care for and protect his wife did just that. The husband held his wife on his chest as she comfortably surrendered to his love.

Katy Aury, a talented photographer, captured the fleeting moment and made sure the world got to see it through her eyes.

The wedding clothes still fit

The man was dressed in a crisp, black tux that still fit like a glove and Lucille had on her white wedding gown that was still in style.

At one point, the pair stared right into each other’s eyes as they soaked up all 60 years of affection.

The lovebirds said their vows in 1960 in Sterling at a Lutheran Church.

The lady was 22 while her husband was one year shy of 30.

They knew they wanted to be in each other’s lives together and had no idea that 60 years after, they would still be intoxicated with each other.
