Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing Brittni and Johnathon who are in their twenties and today I was blessed with the opportunity to photograph Ivan and Mattie Toney, who also got married in their twenties, 75 YEARS AGO!!! Yes, you heard me correctly, they are celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary today. What an amazing milestone and unheard of longevity and commitment. The beautiful thing is they are still in love with each other and share a sense of humor about their relationship. In fact as I was taking their photos, Mr. Toney said to me, “I like all this hugging and kissing, I am going to have to pay you to come by every day to take our photos.” LOL
Brittni and Johnathon, your journey has just begun and the sky is the limit. I pray God continues to bless and keep you and you never know, God willing maybe one day the two of you will be celebrating 75+ years of marriage.
