Hundreds of people turned up to see two senior citizens from Alabama finally get married after their engagement photoshoot went viral earlier this summer.
The couple – 70-year-old Murphy Wilson and 67-year-old Lucinda Myers – tied the knot in front of 900 guests at the First Seventh-day Adventist Church in Huntsville on July 29, ABC News reported.
Myers’ said the best part of the day was watching Wilson’s face as her son-in-law, Rodney Whitlow, walked her down the aisle.
“With so many people in the audience, I just kind of kept my eyes on him,” she said. “I loved looking at his expression.”
Wilson’s favorite part of the special day was getting to kiss his new bride for the first time, he said.
While the ceremony was lengthy, the couple found ways to entertain each other.
“I kept saluting the bride and she kept saluting me back,” Wilson said.
The reception was much more intimate than the ceremony, with only 100 guests in attendance.
During the celebrations, Myers took to the dance for to do the Cupid Shuffle. As Wilson watched his wife dance, he couldn’t help but feel blessed.
“You would’ve thought she was 20 years old,” he said. “She was just wild. I got excited all over again. And, she’s my wife! This is great. I can’t believe I got blessed like this so much.”
Both wedding and engagement photos were captured by Huntsville-based photographer Gianna Snell, who described the couple as her “cutest clients ever” on her Facebook page.
The newlyweds are heading to the Sunshine State to honeymoon in Pensacola, they said.
Both Wilson and Myers had been married before. Wilson was widowed after his previous wife died in 2013, and Myers divorced 30 years ago.
Murphy said for relationships and marriage, “there’s no age limit.”
“Love is what it is: it’s love,” he said.
