Nine decades after they first became man and wife in China, the still-happy couple, Wu Conghan, 101, and his wife Wu Songshi, 103, have gotten around to taking wedding photos.

The pair, married for 88 years, sat for photos recently, recreating their wedding day. According to Today, they wed at a time when cameras were tougher to find.

The centenarians donned wedding apparel for their official portrait. The groom wore a cream suit with black bow tie, while the bride donned full wedding gown, veil and held a bouquet of red roses.

The photos were taken as a part of an initiative by a collective of local photographers in Nanchong, China, located in Sichuan province. The photographers volunteered to shoot the wedding portraits of older couples who could not have photos taken on their wedding days years ago.

In a fitting bit of old meets new, the couple got to instantly see the digital snaps on the photographer's computer. After their photo shoot, the couple's village threw them a wedding party.
