Two lovebirds in the United States have recreated their wedding pictures exactly 50 years later, with the bride even wearing the same dress and standing in front of the same church altar.
Kelly Gay, 76, and his 70-year-old wife got married at DSM First Church in Des Moines, Iowa, on March 12, 1971, Daily Mail reports.
Briefly.co.za notes that one of the recent pictures they took shows them standing on the church altar which still has the same cross it did 50 years ago.
The wife, identified as Carolyn, said when she looks at her wedding photographs, she sees a lot of wrinkles.
According to her, the new photographs were taken by Sam Hoyle from Two Hoyles Photography.
In her words:
"I sit here and look at the pictures and I see a lot of wrinkles. Sam has very good equipment because it shows every line in my face!"
According to Fox News, Carolyn spent three years growing her hair out to be the same length as it was in 1971, to recreate their wedding photos.
In similar news, two lovebirds who have been married for several years recreated an adorable photo they took 48 hours after they met.
Taking to Twitter to share both old and new photos of the couple, @historyandfacts wrote:
"A couple at Woodstock (48 hours after they met) and the same couple 50 years later."
Wearing almost the same hairstyles, the couple posed the same way in both pictures as the wife smiled for both cameras. Tweeps were impressed by both photos and soon flooded the comment section to share their thoughts.

Not long thereafter the thread was filled with compliments for the radiant couple and their bridesmaids.
