Alabama resident Martha Mae Ophelia Moon Tucker married the love of her life nearly 70 years ago.
Today, the grandmother has four children, 11 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
Angela has never worn a wedding dress. But, thanks to her family, she was able to try on the dress of her dreams seven decades later.
One day, the 94-year-old grandmother was watching a wedding scene in the movie, Coming to America.
Then her granddaughter, Angela Strozier, heard her whisper in her ear that she still wanted to try on a wedding dress.
When Martha was getting married in 1952, she was not allowed to enter a bridal shop due to segregation.
So on her wedding day, the new bride wore a blue dress and her husband, Lehman, was dressed in a yellow sports jacket and white pants.
After learning about her grandmother’s sacred desire, Angela and the other family members went to a store so she could pick out her favorite dress.
“I walked into the bridal shop, immediately noticed this beautiful dress. I liked her so much. I was in heaven. »
It was a white lace dress with a matching veil.
Tucker’s family captured the special moments when she tried on her dream wedding dress.
Martha later told ABC she was grateful for her grandchildren’s efforts.
“I looked in the mirror and I didn’t believe it was me. I felt good and felt like I was getting married! “, explained the woman to the ABC.
And now the family was going to have a wedding celebration.
