Each couple had their picture taken.

"We've had a very,very happy marriage and our love even deepens with the more we go on," says LaVonne & Don Morton, married 53 years.

"We celebrated last June (2007)," said Douglas & Jackie Campbell. 51 years this June. This June will be 51. Another day."

Organizers say they stopped counting at 263 couples. They added the community's response was tremendous.
