Joe and Anne met on a cruise ship a few years ago and decided to get married at 60 years old. Joe had never been married before, but when Joe met Anne, he knew she was the love of his life. They got married at Schooley's Mountain Lodge, their favorite hiking spot. After their ceremony, they hiked to a waterfall for some photos. The best part? When he was a little boy, Joe was the ring bearer for his uncle. When Joe got married in June, his uncle, now 80 years old, was his ring bearer!

Comments on A love story between two hiking fans (with a surprise ring bearer story!)

  1. I love the brides dress. Love the photo were she is in her hiking boots and wedding dress.

  2. I want their cake. And to go hiking there. I can have both, right ?

  3. There’s something impish about Joe. He has the spirit of a young Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn. I just sense that. What a sweet love story and I adore seeing a couple of a different age group!

  4. I love finally seeing an older couple featured here, but then there may be many as I am fairly new to the site. I am planning my own oddbeat union in October of 2016….hope to send it in. Thanks…love the articles.

  5. This wedding is adorable and the location is absolutely stunning. I love both their outfits with the hiking boots! Congratulations! 🙂
