GALVESTON - The wedding bells rang out Saturday in Galveston as more than 40 couples renewed their wedding vows in a group ceremony at the Hotel Galvez.

It's an annual event hosted by the hotel, but this year one couple marked three quarters century.

Al and Katherine Hocker of Galveston celebrated 75 years of marriage.

June, by the way, is the most popular month of the year to get married.
