It’s time to meet Clemma and Sterling Elmore.
They are also known as The Greatest Couple of All-Time.
Natives of Oklahoma, the Elmores recently celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary …
… by striking poses reminiscent of every woman’s favorite movie in American cinematic history.
Oh, yes. We’re talking about The Notebook.
They used a vintage truck. They wore 1940s-style clothing. They relied on props such as flowers and cameras.
And they got very much into the characters made famous by Ryan Goslig and Rachel McAdams.
“He said the first time that he laid eyes on me that he said, ‘That’s the girl I’m going to marry,’ ” Clemma told ABC News, adding of The Notebook:
“I love the movie. We both love that movie, such a sweet movie, we’ve seen it twice.”
The Notebook came out in 2004.
Based on a romantic Nicholas Sparks novel, it tells the story of a rich young woman and a poor young man, separated by distance at times and social class.
But you can’t fight love. You can’t tell your heart how to feel.
You can’t compete with the passion of this movie.
The couple was photographed for this unique and memorable set of pictures by Stacy Welch-Christ.
The adorable collection was shared on the photographer’s Facebook page and has been shared, as of this writing, over 54,000 times.
“We are totally overwhelmed. It just has got us just – well, we’re just humbled by the comments,” Clemma says.
Clemma and Sterling have two children together, along with a critical piece of advice for everyone out there.
“We never fail to tell each other, probably 10 times a day, ‘I love you,’ “Sterling, 80, told ABC News.
It sounds so simple, but who ever said love had to be complicated?
We don’t know if Sterling wrote to Clemma every day for a year or anything at any point, but for this two, it still isn’t over!
For those unaware of why The Notebook is so popular, we offer two quotes from the film:
It’s not going to be easy. It’s going to be really hard. And we’re going to have to work on this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me.
The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more; that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our mind.
What? We aren’t crying. YOU’RE the ones who are crying!
