The husbands remove the red veils covering their wives’ faces, which is a ritual practiced in Chinese weddings. The ceremony includes many Chinese wedding traditions like kowtows and a tea ceremony.

Couples hugged each other during the golden wedding ceremony at the foot of Laojun Mountain in Luanchuan, Henan Province, on August 16, 2018. Most of the couples got married in the 1960s when they only had a two-cent piece of paper, which is the marriage certificate and a packet of sweets.
