Love is in the air in downtown Savannah

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A packed City Market was full of loving couples renewing their wedding vows Monday night.

The Reverend Billie Hester was on hand to make it all official. It was a very special day for lovers.

"It's pretty powerful to know that you've lived with someone for over 40 years and most of the time it gets better and better; every once in a while it's not better and better, but it means a lot," said Jerry Everly.

Aside from the obvious gift of a loving spouse, the coordinators also handed out prizes for the longest married couple and the couple with the most kids.
