They met in the early 1950's. He was driving through town when he spotted her, pulled over and asked her out. Well before the age of Tinder, this is how Joe had to link up with the woman he’d marry two years later.

As if this story couldn’t get any cuter, Shalyn asked her grandparents to read love letters to one another during the shoot. Joe stole the show with this tidbit, “I love you as much today as the day I married you. And just think, the license only cost $2.” image @shalynnelson
