In the Pixar movie Up, Carl and Ellie Fredricksen were married for decades. They loved each other thoroughly the whole time. They’re a lot like the grandparents of event designer Lauren Wells. This real-life couple recently celebrated their sixty-first anniversary. Up provided Ms. Wells with an idea for a photoshoot. She writes:
They have been married 61 years, have never taken off their rings, and remain the very best of friends. They never got proper wedding photos, as their photographer stood them up 61 years ago. Us grandkids decided a photo album would make the perfect holiday present, and as such, the UP-themed anniversary shoot was born!
Nina and Gramps, as she calls them, were charmed by photos. But they’ve been especially delighted with the public response to them as the series went viral.
