Couple In Their Eighties Celebrate 60th Anniversary In Original Wedding Attire

A couple in their eighties celebrated their 60th anniversary in their original wedding attire - and it's the most adorable thing we've ever seen.

Marvin and Lucille Stone, from Nebraska, USA, put on their finery to slow dance and pose for photographs in a sun-dappled meadow.

Captured by photographer Kate Autry, the sweet snaps show Lucille, 81, in the elegant lace gown that she sewed by hand.

The couple - who had three children over their marriage - believe shared values and goals is the secret to a long-lasting relationship.

"One, hard work. Two, be kind to one another. Three, think before you speak. Four, rely on each other's strengths to overcome your weakness. Five, stay strong in your faith," the couple told photographer Kate when talking about the key to a happy marriage.

Marvin agreed: "We both had farm backgrounds. We both were free enterprise people and we had similar goals in life and we were both in teaching.

"We had already been in teaching for a while and we were just kind of together in our concepts of what to do and what direction to go and so forth."

"It was a typical wedding," said Marvin. "We had a pastor who was in his first ceremony wedding... and he was a little shook but he did it and we were married."

"My dad cried. He was the only one that cried," Lucille added. "My mother beamed and they both thought Marvin was just perfect, and that does help when your parents like the person that you're marrying."

Offering advice on marriage, Lucille continued: "Use the resources that you have and don't expect to have everything that you might want

"Focus on the needs along the way and keep the faith keep a positive attitude and do your best."
