On Sept. 6, 2015, comedian-magician Justin Willman and photographer Jillian Sipkins got married. Like many couples, they didn't want to spend their entire reception recounting the "Tell us how you first met!" story — so instead, they made a video to show at the rehearsal dinner to get the job done in advance. But this video isn't you usual cutesie slideshow of baby pictures; instead, the happy couple, with the help from their friends and alcohol, made a video telling the story of how they fell in love, Drunk History-style.
Needless to say, it is the definition of #relationshipgoals.
It's also all of the below:
- Pretty well done. I don't know who this couple's friends are, but they're pretty good at videography, as well as just all-round awesome people.
- Hilarious. I mean, I don't want to give anything away, but the story involves a magician.
- Worth aspiring to. Not only is the love story in itself utterly adorable, but getting drunk with your future partner and making a fun, drunk video together is everything anyone wants in a relationship. Well, at least everything I'd want in a relationship.
Between hookup culture, the phenomenon of "ghosting," and everything else that complicates today's dating scene, yeah, love regularly kicks our butts. But every once in a while, we see a couple that makes us believe that, hey, maybe true love is attainable after all. Even if that just means getting drunk together and talking about the ridiculous way you met for your friends.
Here's the outcome of Justin and Jill's drunk history:
And hey, guess what? These two aren't the only Internet couple that embody our relationship goals. Here are some other couples that have made me a little less cynical and a little more hopeful over the years:
This couple took photos of themselves traveling around the world, all of which are framed like this. The travel photos are beautiful, and their wedding and honeymoon photos are beautiful, too. Not only do they spark our hearts, but moreover, they also spark our wonderlust.
OL, so you don't see much of the actual couple per se, but knowing the groom put all this together for his bride and see her crack up the whole time really gives you a hint of how awesome they are.
I mean, who says after you have kids and watch the same Disney movie 800 times the magic disappears? Lip syncing an entire Frozen song together is kind of what true love is all about — before or after kids.
I hope that one day, I have to push my husband's belly through a stuck seatbelt while we're all laughing hysterically, because to me, for whatever reason, that's true #relationshipgoals
