              Safety became a concern after a piece of the bridge fell into the Seine River due to weight of the locks.

              Hopefully a lot of you romantics went to see the bridge one last time before they discarded of the locks. One couple got to take one last memory in front of the Pont des Arts bridge with the locks after their wedding this past weekend!

                    These Guys Learned An A Cappella Routine For A “Pitch Perfect” Proposal

                    May 22, 2015 | Comments 0


                    Max Podell has no vocal experience at all, unless you count him singing in the shower! But that didn’t stop him and his friends who are equally as amateur to recreate a scene from the “aca-mazing” movie Pitch Perfect.

                    Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 4.25.29 PM

                    At a friends birthday party, Max and 8 of his friends sang along to the final performance of the Treblemakers’ cover of “Bright Lights Big City and Magic“. The guys had on blazers with shorts and even added some choreography to sweeten the deal. Towards the end of the performance, Max comes out to serenade his girlfriend, Lindsay Versage with the cover of B.O.B and River Cuomo’s song “Magic”.

                    Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 4.18.16 PM

                    Lindsay had no idea what was going on and thought the entire routine was for her friends birthday, but when she realized what was going on, she was thrilled!

                    “I was absolutely stunned!” she told HuffPost. “It was the most surreal moment and it took me a little while to even realize exactly what was happening. I couldn’t believe how many people were involved and how they pulled it off. It was the best moment of my entire life and I will remember it forever.”
