This Couple Celebrated Their Engagement By Recreating Film's Greatest Duos

This is Jackie Nguyen and Nate Huntley:

You might be able to tell from that photo that they are in love and engaged. The two met while doing a production of Miss Saigon in North Carolina. They’re both actors and perhaps a bit dramatic. In an email, Jackie wrote that when they decided to get married, they joked about taking engagement pics that would be so “outlandish” that they’d confuse their whole family. It was so fun to brainstorm ideas, they couldn’t settle on one. It turned into a year-long photo project with photographer Isaac James and relationship goals for the rest of us.

The two have been taking more and more engagement pics, paying homage to all their favorite characters in TV and film. Here we have Marvel’s Agent Peggy Carter and Captain America:

There’s Dwight Schrute and Michael Scott. They’re sort of a couple, if you think about it.

Ellie Sattler and Alan Grant escaping the dinos in Jurassic Park:

Doc and Marty McFly forever:

The characters from Mrs. Doubtfire, which is technically about divorce, but still great costumes:

Some of the pics are pure fantasy:

They even dressed up as real life couple Yoko Ono and John Lennon:

And as unrequited love, from Bojack Horseman:

Don’t worry, they still have a few normal pics:

These Badass Women Celebrated Their 100th Birthdays Together As A #Squad

Long before the days of TSwift, Selena Gomez, Cara Delevigne, Karlie Kloss, Hailee Steinfeld, and Gigi Hadid were Gladys, Ruth, and Bernice. Yes, Taylor and the crew have a long way to go before their squad reaches the legitimacy of these three women who celebrated their 100th birthdays together in Washington, D.C. on Saturday. 

Gladys Butler, Ruth Hammett, Bernice Underwood, and the late Leona Barnes were all born in June and July of 1916 and have been best friends ever since.

According to The Washington Post, the four “played jacks and hopscotch and jumped rope together.” They attended the same church for years and three of them even had children in the same year (1933). During the celebration Butler, Hammett, and Underwood sat next to a painting of their missing squad member, Barnes.

It seems like they had quite the birthday celebration. 

The women presented a video in which they discussed their lives and shared their centenarian wisdom (which we should all pay attention to if we’re hoping to make it to 100). Partygoers shared memories and photos of the unbeatable trio throughout the years. Even D.C. local government got involved in the festivities— D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and City Councilman Brandon Todd offered birthday wishes. 

And it wouldn’t be a truly incredible story without Oprah making some kind of appearance. 

One of the ladies’ fellow churchgoers worked as a makeup artist for Oprah Winfrey and convinced the TV Queen to record a video for the original #Squad. Winfrey wished them “the grandest and greatest” birthday, and was in awe of their goddamn longevity. “The things you must have seen over the last century,” she mused.

And, we have to say, we really want to join this particular squad.

Old age hasn’t seemed to affect them much— Underwood and Butler still live on their own. “I still dance,” Underwood said. “Sometimes by myself.”

…Step aside, squads under 100. (h/t washington post)
