By most accounts, it was a traditional wedding ceremony. The bride wore a white gown with flowers woven into her hair. The groom opted for a dress shirt.
They held hands as the priest conducted the ceremony.
But this wasn’t just any regular wedding.
Jose Manuel Riella, the groom, is 103 years old. The bride, Martina Lopez, is 99. The Paraguayans have been together for 80 years, and have eight children together, but they had never tied the knot in the eyes of the church.
So they decided, after eight decades, to make their union official.
