MORGAN CITY, La. — A Louisiana couple has enjoyed 70 years of marriage, but there weren’t any photos that documented the day they tied the knot.

Their granddaughter wanted them to have something special to remember the day, so she helped them re-create it, this time with pictures, WTVM reported.

Ferris and Margaret Romaire, now 90 and 89, respectively, married on Nov. 24, 1946. They had been high school sweethearts and wed after Ferris served in World War II.

It was a simple ceremony — just 15 minutes at the home of Margaret’s parents.

There was no photographer that day, but almost 70 years later, their granddaughter Amanda Kleckley commissioned Lara Carter to photograph the “forever in love” couple, with the groom dressed in a tuxedo and the bride in a dress and veil.

“In this digital age, I feel like those of us in the ‘younger’ generation take documenting every moment of our lives for granted,” Kleckley said. “I wanted my grandparents to have the gift of beautiful pictures, showcasing their love for each other, even if it was 70 years later.”
