They say a successful marriage requires falling in love hundreds of times, all with the same person. For high school sweethearts Ferris and Margaret Romaire, we're betting the number is closer to thousands. The pair celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary last year, but never had photos from their 1946 wedding. So they decided to re-create the wedding with beautiful photos documenting their love and devotion. The entire session and story behind these two is absolutely precious. It's why we chose them for the Love What Matters book. Support our page while getting mom something beautiful for Mother's Day, visit the link in our bio to pre-order.

The devoted couple, elegantly dressed for the occasion, still seemed so youthful as Margaret used her veil to place over her groom’s head as she lovingly embraced him. While these adorable tender shots can’t help but make us admire their long-lasting love, they also give us an important reminder that we should take the time to celebrate the beauty of marriage — don’t forget to take precious care of your own wedding veil (and gown for those lucky enough to still fit in it!) as you never know when you might want to have a little fun celebrating your own married life.
The Romaires’ story has now been documented in a book by the Love What Matters team that is full of inspirational and moving stories, and it feels only right that the Romaires should be featured in it.
