They say that true love is timeless and ageless. One couple is proving that sentiment very true with their lovely wedding photo shoot — decades after they tied the knot.

An elderly Brazilian couple is going viral after they decided to recreate wedding photos 60 years after the fact. In the photos, the sweet older couple poses for a variety of pictures in their wedding-day best.

But what people are really loving is how clearly in love the couple still is, after all this time together.

Brazilian photography company São Paulo Fotografia, run by husband-wife team Vivian and David Balatonfüredi, took the gorgeous pictures. The photographer duo shared some of the best photos from the older couple’s shoot in a Facebook post on September 22, 2017.

Many commenters can’t get enough of the visible love shared between the two, saying they are proof that there are still couples who are in it for the long haul.

According to Huffington Post UK, the Brazilian couple starring in this lovely photo shoot are Dona Rosa and Seu Russo.

The pair married in 1957. In the 60 years since their wedding, the couple has had 9 children, 16 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren.

At the time, their small wedding was a modest affair.

An aunt made the wedding cake, the bride’s godmother made her a wedding dress, and their family members were the only guests in attendance.

But Dona and Seu are proof that it’s not the size and sophistication of your wedding day that determines the quality of your marriage — it’s about the size of the love between you.

Sadly, Dona and Seu didn’t have any photos taken of their big day.

That’s when a group of wedding vendors in São Paulo, Brazil, came together to help the grandparents recreate their wedding day.

And this time, they’d finally get the wedding photo album they wanted!

David of São Paulo Fotografia captured the stunning images of the wedding, while his partner Vivian shot video footage.

Dona and Seu had a beautiful outdoor ceremony, surrounded by fairy lights, an old red truck, and vintage furniture.

All of the wedding details were contributed by local businesses.

The bride’s dress was provided by wedding designer RCampos Atelier. Her makeup and hair were handled by Cor e Alma.

The groom’s outfit was provided by men’s clothing rental company Villa Roma.

The bouquet was provided by local florist Gra Barriviera, while the other decorations were handled by Sérgio Peralta.

The ceremony took place at Chacara Terra Prometida, a wooded outdoor venue located in the Cordeirópolis region of São Paulo. The couple’s vow renewal was officiated by local celebrant Fernanda Caetano.

This is such a lovely celebration of the never-ending bond between Dona and Seu.
