Planning a wedding is a fun, stressful, exciting time for any couple. But what about planning 38 weddings? Newlyweds Cheetah Platt and Rhiann Woodyard are doing just that, and they are using the opportunity to travel the world.
Platt and Woodyard got engaged last year, and decided that the whole “one-day celebration” wasn’t for them. So instead, they’ve been trekking around the globe and holding weddings in destinations from Columbia to India, and everywhere in-between.
“A lot of women spend a whole lot of money on their one day, and then it’s over,” Platt has said about the journey which has spanned 38 countries. “I love that I get to marry [him] over and over again.”
Woodyard feels the same way: “It was exactly what I wanted, to travel the world with my wife and marry her again and again and again in so many different ways. That was perfect for me”
To fund the trip, the couple turned to Honeyfund, a site that allows couples to register for honeymoon experiences rather than the traditional store registry. The couple is ordained, so they can perform the weddings themselves wherever they decide they’d like to. How awesome is that?
But here’s maybe the coolest part: Both Platt and Woodyard are professional acrobats, which means the photos are absolutely incredible! Check these out.

“Climbing to the top of stoney point was our Second Date! When we reached the top, I set up my cell phone with a 10 second timer, and (after two tries) we created our iconic kiss. It was so amazing to re-create it as husband and wife two years later!”
