Getting married in the golden age of social media means it’s almost impossible to lose wedding photos. The rise of Instagram hashtags and digital photo albums has made the sharing process a breeze. A wedding from 1963, however, not so much. That’s exactly why Megan and Bobby Kapsidis are trying to return a lost wedding album to its owner.

The couple found the mysterious wedding album while helping Bobby’s mother renovate her home in Holiday, Florida. “We got married five years ago and all our photos are digital,” Megan told ABC News. “In 1963 they didn’t have digital photos. This book is all they had and I want to get it back to them.”

Bobby was cutting into the ceiling when he found a closed-off crawl space where the album was concealed—along with an alligator purse, a wedding invitation and a parents’ album.

“I reached in the installation and I pulled out this wedding book,” Bobby told the news outlet. “It’s old and kind of dusty and I said, ‘This is pretty incredible.’ Just seeing something nostalgic like that. I have no idea why they’d keep it up in the attic.”

“Stuff just keeps falling from our ceiling!” Megan wrote on Facebook on June 2. “Now it’s someone’s wedding album from 1963! They got married in New York. Anyone know Marguerite and Joseph Gargiulo?”

“I’m pretty sure I’m going to find her, if not, her family,” Megan told ABC News. “I have a lead that she’s two towns north of where we are now. I’d like to return it and maybe hear a little bit about her wedding day if she’s willing to talk about it.”
