Couple Celebrates 55th Wedding Anniversary With Recreation Of First Date

Elmber and Fran Armstrong recreated their first date to celebrate their upcoming 55th wedding anniversary.

The Missouri couple’s granddaughter Courtney Stepp, a photographer, wanted to recreate her grandparents first date as an anniversary gift.

The married couple’s first date was at St. Louis Steak ‘n Shake in 1962 on a rainy day. Although the location they originally met is no longer there, Courtney arranged their anniversary date at another Steak ‘n Shake in the St. Louis area. They recreated the same exact meal they shared on their first date – hamburgers and a strawberry milkshake.

After 55 years, the couple are still enjoying each other’s company. Courtney told People her grandparents were giggling and laughing throughout their date 55 years later. Her photos of her grandparents’ date have gone viral.

As an anniversary present, Courtney plans to present an album of their date to her grandparents in June when they celebrate their 55-year union.

Now that’s what we call #relationshipgoals.
