**If you’re lucky, you’ll only get married once** – unless, of course, you’re Cheetah Platt and Rhiann Woodyard. This couple is lucky enough to get married as many times as possible, all over the world.
Originally from Los Angeles, this couple has decided to commit to each other for all eternity by getting married -and remarried, and then married again – in 12 countries throughout the world.
They came up with the idea after getting engaged last year, and found themselves unable to decide how to celebrate. Eventually, it dawned on them that they didn’t have to choose one day or location: They could get married as many times and in as many places as they wanted.
Furthermore, traditional weddings often come with incredibly high price tags – the couple realized that for similar prices, they could take the journey of a lifetime.
On February 8, 2015, Platt and Woodyard began their journey in Bogota, Columbia. They planned to be away for three months, visiting 12 countries and getting married a whopping 38 times.
Before leaving for this amazing trip, the couple both got ordained online – that way, if there was no one around to marry them, they could actually marry each other!
They also made the decision to only wear white throughout their entire trip.
So, how did Platt and Woodyard pay for this journey of a lifetime? Well, they got a little bit creative. First, they registered online for a honeymoon (something that most couples do) and asked friends and families to gift money for different stays around the world. Their unusual story also prompted strangers to make donations.
Perhaps the most interesting part of this unusual story is that Platt and Woodyard are both talented aerial performers. Because of their unique skill set, the wedding photos that they are sharing from around the world are acrobatic and an absolute treat to look at.
To date, the couple has traveled to Ireland, Spain, Kenya, Egypt, Morocco, Thailand, and India. Their pictures, which they post on social media, are simply stunning.
The pair originally planned to get married on all seven continents, but it turned out that Antarctica was too pricey for their tight budget – in fact, Platt and Woodyard were able to score round-the-world flights, stopping in 11 countries, for about $3000 each!
‘A lot of people say you should travel with the person you’re going to marry,’ Woodyard said in an interview. ‘We get to learn about each other everyday more and more and I love that it’s brought us closer.’
