Couple Married 61 Years Ago Takes "Up" Inspired Anniversary Photos

This adorable couple, married for an incredible 61 years, finally got the photos they deserve! As a special holiday present, event designer and granddaughter Lauren Wells (on her husband’s side) decided to create some truly memorable anniversary photos for her “Nina and Gramps.” According to Lauren, the two “have never taken their rings off, remain the best of friends, and have just one picture from their wedding day” because “their photographer stood them up!”

Using the classic Pixar movie Up as inspiration, Lauren worked with a team of people to create this unique gift. Debuting on the popular wedding blog Style Me Pretty today, the incredibly sweet photos have not even been seen by the couple (yet!). “Caroline from Wildfolk managed to bring the balloon colors to life in her flowers, and Nina cried when she got handed her beautiful bouquet,” Lauren told Style Me Pretty. “Working with Cambria (of Cambria Grace Photography) is always a dream, and these photos are pure magic – us grandkids cannot wait to see Nina & Gramps' faces when they open these photos on Christmas morning!”

UPDATE: We’re elated to announce that Lauren’s photos and the story of Nina and Gramps is one of 25 photo stories featured in our new book For Love, published by Chronicle Books! The official release date is March 15, 2016, and the book is currently available to pre-order at AmazonBarnes and Noble, and Indie Bound.
