Ferris and Margaret Romaire have been married for 70 years, but sadly they don't have one single photo from their wedding to help them commemorate their special day.
The high school sweethearts, Ferris, 90, and Margaret, 89, married onÂ Nov. 24, 1946 in Morgan City, Louisiana. The ceremony lasted about 15 minutes, and the reception was a fairly simple affair. Unfortunately no one had a camera at the wedding and no pictures were taken.
"I'm sure people had cameras then but evidently nobody thought to bring a camera to our wedding. We didn't have weddings then like people do today" Margaret Romaire shared with ABC News.
But now, thanks to their granddaughter, they were able to have a wedding photo shoot of their dreamsÂ in order to celebrate their 70 years of marriage!
Their granddaughter, Amanda Kleckley, hiredÂ professional photographer Lara Carter to photographÂ the couple in honor of their 70th anniversary. And we have to warn you, the photos are overwhelmingly heartwarming!
The couple shared some of their secrets to a happy marriage with photographer, Lara Carter.
"Ferris said the key to a long marriage isÂ giving each other space and respecting one another and also admitting when you are wrong, except that Margaret is never wrong!" Carter told The Huffington Post. (Smart man!)Â
Margaret talked about the importance of a good apology and comprising.
âIf a problem came up they solved it. It was more important to compromise and move on than to be right. Two was always better than one!â
Their granddaughter, Kleckley, told TODAY,Â âMy grandparents just truly have a wonderful love for each other that shines through the photos. We just let them be natural and everything turned out great.â
And we couldn't agree more!Â Thank you, Ferris and Margaret Romaire, for sharing your inspiring love story.
