This Couple Took Their Wedding Photos 60 Years After Getting Married

Seu and Dona Rosa Russo were married in 1957, in a relative's yard, with an aunt baking the cake and a godmother sewing the bride's dress. Unfortunately, their modest wedding was never captured on camera. Sixty years later, they have nine children, 16 grandkids, and four great-grandkids — and no photos of their wedding.
We're so glad they remedied this, because these photos made our day. Along with a group of other creatives, photographers Vivian and Dávid Balatonfüredi from São Paulo Fotografia helped the longtime couple plan what they called a "mini-wedding," as first spotted by People. The resulting photo shoot was sweet and full of emotion, not to mention stunningly gorgeous. And we're crying, because how can you not?
