3 years after finding ‘the one’, great-grandmother, Dorothy Williams, has tied the knot with her 86-year-old lover, Richard Rola.

Widow Dorothy Williams, now 93, from Macomb, Michigan, believed she wouldn't fall in love again after the death of her first husband two decades ago. But that changed when she met her now-husband Richard Rola, 86, three years ago. The couple, pictured, married last month

Widow Dorothy Williams, 93, from Michigan, U.S., believed she wouldn’t fall in love again after the death of her first husband 20 years ago, but that changed when she met her new husband, Rola, at a polka dancing class three years ago.

Dorothy and Richard followed Polish traditions by adding symbolic wedding headwear. Dorothy donned a ribbon of flowers suggesting 'blooming youth' and Richard wore a white gentleman's hat, which symbolises a wish for a 'lifetime of happiness and laughter', pictured

18 months after they met, Richard proposed to Dorothy while on holiday with her family and she said YES.

The duo tied the knot in front of 200 friends and family, with the bride donning a short pink dress, gold sequin tennis shoes and flowers in her hair to suggest ‘blooming youth’.
