Now for the second instalment of this utterly inspired creative shoot from CeCe + Honey Photography The Eventful Life and their superstar posse of Chicago wedding vendors.

We spend so much time waxing lyrical about the first day of your new marital status (and all the big decisions and fun moments leading up to it!) but we never really look at what happens in the weeks, years, and decades after your wedding.

Oh y’know, that little old thing called marriage.

So after being utterly inspired by a nostalgic look at a 1964 wedding this morning, fast-forward 50 years to renewing your vows in 2014, and see what became of that chic sixties couple on their golden anniversary.

Spoiler Alert: They’re just as stylish, they’ve swapped the cocktail bar for a popcorn one, and they’re more loved up than ever!

Isn’t it romantic? It’s so nice to feature something a little bit different, we hope we can still look like a pair of newlyweds standing next to our other halves in 50 years time!

And if you didn’t see the 1964 vintage wedding inspiration for this golden pair, check out all its retro stylings here.

And thanks again to CeCe + Honey and The Eventful Life for giving us double helpings of romance for a Friday.
