Proving it's never too late for a white wedding, Vivian Boyack and Alice "Nonie" Dubes were married Sept. 6 after 72 years together.

As The Quad City Times is reporting, the pair exchanged vows in front of a small group of family members and close friends at Davenport's First Christian Church.

Boyack, 91, and Dubes, 90, held hands during the intimate ceremony, during which Rev. Linda Hunsaker reportedly told the couple, “This is a celebration of something that should have happened a very long time ago.”

Friend Jerry Yeast agreed, telling the Times: “I’ve known these two women all my life, and I can tell you, they are special. This is a very special day for all of us.”

The women met in their hometown of Yale, Iowa before moving to Davenport in 1947, where Boyack taught school and Dubes did payroll work, according to the Associated Press.

Congrats, ladies!
