One of the most important parts of wedding planning is undoubtedly finding a photographer to capture all of the special moments that happen on your big day. But for one adorable couple who got married in a late November wedding in 1946, a photographer just wasn't in the cards for them.
Instead, Ferris and Margaret Romaire opted for simplicity. The pair ended up having a 15-minute ceremony and a reception at Margaret's parents' home, according to BuzzFeed. The only problem, though, was that no one had a camera to take any sweet snapshots of the pair.
But now, after spending 70 blissful years together, they finally got the wedding photos they always dreamed of. Better late than never right?! Apparently what happened was "their granddaughter Amanda Kleckley decided to give them the one thing their long marriage couldn't produce — wedding photos." In search of a photographer, the couple's granddaughter wound up finding Lara Carter, who was super excited to capture their sweet moments.
On October 12, Ferris and Margaret stepped into their finest clothes to relive their special day. Margaret even carried a beautiful rose bouquet while her hubby toted old black and white photos of the pair when they were younger. "You can see the love between them in just the way they interact with each other and laugh together," Carter told BuzzFeed.
As for their secret to marital success? "Ferris said that 'giving each other space and respecting one another' was important, as is remembering to 'admit when you are wrong, except that Margaret is never wrong!" Carter said. "Margaret said that saying sorry and compromising are key." Their tips must really work because after 70 years of marriage this adorbs duo has four children, eight grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren to call their own, not to mention the fact that they still reside in the house they built for their family 65 years ago in Morgan City, Louisiana.
"They didn't have lots of money, but they had lots of shared values — the love of children, a good work ethic, a strong faith in God, and a sense of humor," Carter told BuzzFeed. "A simple life has helped to contribute to their good relationship and good health in these later years."
And that, brides, is what true love really looks like.
