Mexico Oaxaca Wedding

This July 26, 2016 photo shows a hanging wedding centerpiece displayed in the home of newlyweds Pablo Ibarra, 75, and Francisca Santiago, 65, in Santa Ana, in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. The couple first met in 1967 while tending goats in the fields outside of Santa Ana. Soon thereafter Ibarra asked Santiago to marry him. But Santiago, who was 16 at the time, said she turned down his first offer "out of respect" for her widowed mother. NICK WAGNER / ASSOCIATED PRESS
