After their engagement photos went viral in June, 70-year-old Murphy Wilson and 67-year-old Lucinda Myers tied the knot at the First Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Huntsville, Alabama, on July 29 in front of friends and family.
Those in attendance at the ceremony, including the couple’s combined 11 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, witnessed a memorable moment as the couple shared a 90-second kiss at the front of the church.
“The kiss was one for the ages, and by the end had the entire church erupting into cheers,” Danita Jones told Yahoo Style. Jones is one of Wilson’s daughters who helped plan the wedding and reception with his other daughter, Gina Woods, through Productions by Danita Jones.
It’s the second marriage for both Wilson and Myers, but they know they have a special love for each other.
“This is one of the greatest days of my life, to be able to marry the love of my life,” Myers told family at the reception.
