SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

A Santa Barbara couple is living proof that you are never to old to find love again.

Yvonne Brown and Bill Montag tied the knot on Saturday in front of family and friends at the Maravilla Senior Living Community in Goleta. 

Brown is 86 years old. Montag is 85 years old.  Both are widowers who recently moved to Maravilla. They met at bingo, and the rest is history!

Friends of the couple say their chemistry is undeniable. Brown said, "You just have to find the right person."  Montag said, "It's a wonderful experience to find someone at a later age who is so compatible and likes to do the same things."

The Montag's will have a very large family. Together, they have  9 children, 17 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.
