A couple from Nebraska, who have been married for 60 years, celebrated their anniversary with a spectacular photo shoot in their original wedding outfits.
Marvin and Lucille Stone were in vision as they held hands, danced together, and posed in an open field in Nebraska while photographer Katy Autry captured the sweet moment.
88-year-old Marvin wore his black tuxedo with a matching bow tie, and 81-year-old Lucille wore a beautiful lace dress that she had hand-sewn together.

"It took the longest to make 52 buttons on the sleeves and back," Lucille told KHGI-TV.
The couple tied the knot in a small Lutheran church in Sterling, Nebraska, in 1960. Marvin was almost 29 years old at the time, while Lucille was 22 years old.
& # 39; It was a typical wedding. We had a pastor attending his first wedding … and he was a little shaken but he did and we were married, 'said Marvin.
& # 39; My father cried. He was the only one who cried, ”added Lucille. "My mom was beaming and they both thought Marvin was just perfect, and that helps when your parents like the person you're marrying."

Lucille: "From day one we assumed that marriage was forever … We had disagreements, but we're pretty much on the same path on big things."
It also helps that Marvin and Lucille grew up much like children of the Great Depression.
"We're both pretty conservative," said Lucille. & # 39; We were depression kids. He was born in the early 30s and I came a few years later for my parents as a kind of surprise baby.
According to Marvin, they were on the same page in almost every way.
“We both had an agricultural background. We were both freelance entrepreneurs and we had similar goals in life and we both taught, ”he said.
"We'd been teaching for a while and we were just kind of together on our concepts of what to do and what direction to go and so on."

Six decades later, the Stone family said their family values and love stood the test of time.
"We don't always agree, but we have the main focus that we've always had, so it just keeps moving," Marvin told KHGI-TV.
"We had similar stats and it worked out pretty well and I don't know, we never thought about breaking up."
Lucille stated, "From day one we assumed that marriage was forever."
“You do what you have to do, and we were far from perfect in our marriage. We had arguments. We had disagreements, but we're pretty much on the same path on big things. "
Lucille (pictured) admitted that the hardest part of making her hand-sewn dress was making 52 buttons on the sleeves and back.
