Flame Introductions loves a tale of long-term love, and we think we might have just found the ultimate, heart-melting story of commitment and friendship. On Sunday August 17th 1969, the third day of Woodstock, a couple were photographed standing in the mud, swaddled in a blanket among the debris of the iconic festival.
The image would go on to become a symbol of those three days of peace and music on a dairy farm in upstate New York—and the cover of the festival’s album soundtrack.
Almost 50 years later, that iconic couple are still together and as much in love as they ever were. They are Nick and Bobbi Ercoline, they married two years after the iconic festival and are now grandparents.
It’s easy to see from the tender and protective embrace that was captured all those years ago, that the young couple in their early 20s, a local housing officer and a school nurse, were very much in love. But Nick insists nothing has changed.
