After 67 years of marriage, Qiao Dewei finally found the most opportune moment to say “I Love You” to his wife, Liu Shixiu, for the very first time. And boy, did he do it in style on Valentine’s Day!
The 84-year-old loving husband went all-out this Valentine’s Day by renting out the entire side of a building in Hangzhou to spell out the words “I ♥ U” for his 83-year-old wife (and a significant portion of the city) to see.
Qiao Dewei was able to send the 218-meter-tall message for his beloved wife with a little help from his grandson and the local hotel, Sina reported (via Shanghaiist).
Their hotel room was also properly adorned with romantic decor.
To make the event extra special, the couple also dressed up for it, with the husband wearing a nice tux and the wife putting on a beautiful wedding gown. Wearing such outfits was another first in their relationship since they were not able to do so on their wedding day many, many years ago.
According to the Chinese elderly couple from Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, neither of them had done any grand romantic gesture in the past, making this Valentine’s Day date a momentous occasion for both.
