SPOKANE, Wash. -- A couple celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on Saturday, June 15.

"I had my eye on him from the very start. From the 8th grade on," said Emmy Schmidt. "We wanted to get married right out of high school but our parents made us wait for a year because it would never last."
It has lasted seven decades. The couple renewed their vows on Saturday in a surprise ceremony put on by their families.
