Laura Scheel and Matt Grodsky met when they were kiddos in preschool. In fact, one of Matt’s earliest childhood memories dates way back to preschool with Laura. “One of my very first memories is of being 3 years old and standing up in front of my pre-school class, declaring that I would marry her someday,” Matt wrote. But after preschool, the love birds lost touch up until freshman year in high school when they reconnected through a mutual friend. Laura and Matt totally hit it off, and within two weeks they were boyfriend and girlfriend. Now, as years have passed since their preschool love, Matt finally decided to “stay true to [his] preschool pledge”, and the pair got married in December 2016. It’s like a real-life fairytale romance!
Every wedding anniversary is worthy of celebration, but a 70th anniversary is one that deserves something truly special. Chinese couple Wang Deyi, 98, and Cao Yuehua, 97, were married in 1945 at Northern Hot Springs Park in Chongqing. They had four children who, this year, helped them to recreate the wedding photo from so long ago.
“My parents are 98 this year,” the couple’s youngest son, 60-year-old Cao Pangpei told CNN. “They have been together for so long, going through the war, the political turmoil and diseases, and can still stay with each other and love each other. We want to help them to commemorate their love.”
While most of us these days are looking for professionals to record our wedding in a nice and polished way, Addie and Marshall Burnette decided to hire their husky instead!
They strapped a GoPro camera to their doggy and let her run around freely during the ceremony on a Roan Mountain, Tennessee, where the couple had their first date 10 years ago.
“It was cold and magical,” Marshall writes on Youtube. “Our dog, Ryder, insisted on filming the wedding video, so we let her do her thing. She took awhile to edit the footage, but we think she did a great job.”
Some of us have experienced that a long distance relationship can be quite frustrating, to say the least. What should you do when Skype just isn’t enough? One creative Korean couple currently in this situation found a genius way to connect with each other through art.
Despite the 14-hour time difference, Danbi Shin, currently based in New York, and Seok Li, based in Seoul, keep their relationship alive by taking photos simultaneously while on video calls and creating collages.
The project is called “Half&Half” and with it the artist duo ShinLiArt try to discover the similarities between their different lifestyles dictated by different locations.
This ranch-style home in the Hollywood Hills is an absolute dream. Owned by designers Ryan Brown and Diego Monchamp of Brown Design Group, they completely renovated the home making it much more open-plan. The new design is much more modern but they added midcentury touches to pay homage to its origins. I adore the kitchen/dining space – and whatdoyaknow, there’s some tumbling block tile again! 🙂
Texas-based interior designer Christen Ales wanted to share a couple of her projects with us. The one above is so fun – mid century modern with lots of colour accents in what is pretty much my dream home. Below is more contemporary but equally fabulous with shades of grey and blue. Soothing and classic, and OMG WILL YOU LOOK AT THOSE WINDOWS!
Using the power of makeup, a couple travels 60 years into the future.
In this tearjerker, a soon-to-be-wed couple takes a seat in the makeup chair. They’re not prepping for their wedding, but rather the rest of their lives– using stage makeup and prosthetics, a team of artists showed what the happy couple would look like as they aged. It’s pretty emotional– the couple gets a “preview” of their lives as 40-year-old parents, 60-year-old retirees, and an elderly man and woman having spent their whole lives together. The whole experiment ends with much emotional crying and vow-writing. It’s sappy and wonderful.
