A couple that met at Woodstock finally has photographic evidence of their fateful encounter.

Fifty years ago this weekend, Judy and Jerry Griffin met while on the way to the famous 1969 music festival in New York.

Judy’s car had broken down, but Jerry and his buddies were happy to give her a lift.

The festival was only three days, but the connection between the two lasted much longer ― they’ve been together ever since and now have two sons and five grandchildren, according to People.com.

But while their road to love started on their way to Woodstock, the Griffins had no pictures of themselves there, even though they both brought cameras.

The lack of visual proof was something the couple came to regret over the last five decades, but things changed when the Griffins went to see the PBS documentary “Woodstock: Three Days That Defined a Generation.” 

Right there, in a section about the rainstorms, the Griffins saw their 22-year-old selves wrapped together in a blanket.
