Every wedding anniversary is worthy of celebration, but a 70th anniversary is one that deserves something truly special. Chinese couple Wang Deyi, 98, and Cao Yuehua, 97, were married in 1945 at Northern Hot Springs Park in Chongqing. They had four children who, this year, helped them to recreate the wedding photo from so long ago.

“My parents are 98 this year,” the couple’s youngest son, 60-year-old Cao Pangpei told CNN. “They have been together for so long, going through the war, the political turmoil and diseases, and can still stay with each other and love each other. We want to help them to commemorate their love.”
