Couples who have been married for exactly half a century were honored Saturday at the Field Museum.

The party for the brides and grooms who were wed in 1961 was called the sweetest anniversary celebration.

They enjoyed cake and a non-alcoholic champagne toast.

A highlight of the festivities for the 50-year couples was a chance to renew their wedding vows.

They did, and then sealed the ceremony with a kiss.
