Jake Kantrowitz and Sarah Truitt have known each other since they were 3-years-old, and have the adorable photo evidence to prove it.
Now, 23 years later, the happy Boston couple tied the knot on July 27, making it official by recreating one of their favorite childhood memories aboard a carousel.
Kantrowitz and Truitt, both 26, used the old carousel photo for their “Save the Date” invitations that were sent to all the wedding guests, so when they got creative and recreated the photo on their wedding day, the groom’s best man, Levi Albert, 26, of San Francisco, was inspired to photoshop both versions of the special moment together.
“I’ve had the ‘Save the Date’ up on my fridge since they sent it out because it was so cute, so when I saw they recreated it, I thought it would be instant karma on Reddit,” Albert told GoodMorningAmerica.com.
Turns out he was right, as the photo had more than 41,000 “upvotes” and became one of the top trending stories on the social media site in less than 24 hours of his posting.
The newlyweds are honeymooning in Costa Rica, but upon learning of their photo trending on Reddit, Truitt tweeted, “Omg. I am really excited / a little embarrassed at the same time!!! Amaaaaaaaazing.”
And as for the wedding itself, Albert said the carousel wasn’t the only highlight.
“It was just the most comfortable and inviting wedding I’ve ever been to,” he explained. “It was amazing.”
