Murphy and Lucinda, who proved it’s never too late to find love, tied the knot 💍
on Saturday, July 29, 2017. 70-year-old Murphy Wilson and 67-year-old Lucinda Myers exchanged vows and said “I do” at the very place where their love began.
The couple met at church after #praying for years for God to bless them with love. The search is over.
Wilson was widowed in 2013 and wasn’t sure he could move on until he met Myers at church.
“We were married for 41 years. We were very, very, very close,” Wilson said of his late wife, Antoinette. “I discovered about myself I’m not built to be a bachelor. I didn’t like being by myself. We were like one person for 41 years. We literally said, ‘To have and to hold ‘til death do us part’ and that was what we went through. But I got to a point where I recognized I still have a lot of love left.”
“She swept me off my feet. I just fell in love with this gorgeous woman,” Wilson told ABC News. “And of course she fell in love with me because of my charm and suave. My daughters — and I love my daughters — they decided they were going to be wedding planners and put all of this together. They decided we should have a photo shoot in the downtown park of Huntsville.”
After his wife’s death, Wilson said he would “pray and pray” for the Lord to bring someone else into his life, until he realized, “the answer to my prayer was sitting in the balcony with me for the last four years.”
Myers agreed, explaining that she and Wilson had been eyeing each other for quite some time at church but had never really spoken.
“He has a beautiful smile. I love him so much,” she said of Wilson. “He has such a calm demeanor about him. The Lord just put us together for a reason. We’re just so happy. I couldn’t have asked for a better mate.”
The couple got married on Saturday the 29th of July and Wilson’s daughters were the wedding planners.
Myers is excited because she said she “never had a real wedding before.” This time around she’s already chosen her wedding dress and is hiding it from Wilson.
“I’m thinking I’m going to have to have a facial massage because I’ve been grinning so much,” said Wilson. “I’ve been telling everybody that I have been blessed again. I never thought God would give me another fantastic mate and he has. I just didn’t think it would happen again.”
