“I knew I wanted to create something special, and celebrate what true love was to me. And that for me, was my grandparents,” Nelson told BuzzFeed. “[My Mamaw] loved every minute. It was so cute to see how excited she was to get all dolled up. I went to Macy’s to try to find my Mamaw a dress, and ended up stuffing the top with my coat at the time to make sure there was enough room in the dress for her.”

The photo shoot is part of an ongoing project called Love, The Nelsons, which Nelson began to celebrate old love. “I’m ready to show lovers around the world that true love still exists,” Nelson pledges. “There are so many love stories that we don’t know of out there waiting to be shared.”
