In 1946, high school sweethearts Ferris and Margaret Romaire got married. Unluckily nobody had a camera to capture their sweet wedding moment. In celebration of their 70th wedding anniversary Amanda Kleckley (their granddaughter) got an idea to reenact the wedding pictures that we’re not able to take.
Margaret Romaire (89) wore an elegant lavender gown, while Ferris Romaire (90) looked handsome in his suit. According to Lara, “you can see the love between them in the way they interacted with each other and laughed together as we would go from the different poses”. “They are a beautiful example of what marriage is meant to be.

The couple had 4 kids, 8 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.
