Emma & Willie Alexander

Celebrating Their 50th Wedding Anniversary

Home: Albany, GA

Why is your spouse still the best partner for you?

“I love that he is a trustworthy person and a good provider,” says Emma. “I cannot see myself with anyone else.”

Is there anything you wish you would have known before getting married?

“I was told marriage was 50/50,” recalls Willie. “But I found out it’s actually 100/100.”

 What advice would you give to couples?

“Communication and honesty are key,” shares Emma. “Always keep the lines of communication open and don’t let anger get the best of you.”

He knew he was in love when…

He saw that cute little Floridian girl.

She knew she was in love when…

He held her in his arms and kissed her.

In 10 years we will…

Still be holding hands and in love.

Before the groom got married, he wishes someone had told him…

That marriage will not always be a bed of roses.

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

She was too young to get married.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Go to the movies.

Our nicknames for each other are…

“Charlie” because it is how she gets his attention and “Sweetie” because that is what she is to him.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

Logan’s restaurant.

Our song is…

Sam Cooke’s “Only Sixteen.”

Our perfect date night  is…

Dinner and a movie.
