The couple contracted the virus in December and Grace Limbach still hasn't regained her sense of smell.

Besides renewing their vows, the Limbach's now have a renewed appreciation for what's most important in maintaining a loving relationship.

"Never lose your sense of humor, don't argue too much," the couple said.

The ceremony was officiated by the North Hempstead town clerk.

The couple also received new wedding bands free of charge.
