Where It All Began

Many couples say that they're "destined to be together." While it's super cute to say, it's usually not meant to be taken in the literal sense. That may be true for most people, but Heidi and Ed Savitt have a completely different tale to tell.

After four years of dating, Heidi Parker and Ed Savitt decided it was time for their families to meet. The couple planned a dinner in Wandsworth, southwest London. They invited Ed's mother, Fiona, and Heidi's mother, Kay. During the dinner, the families discovered something that would blow everyone's mind.

In 2011, Heidi and Ed met while they were both attending Newcastle University. Ed was majoring in Psychology and Business, and Heidi was studying Economics and Management. The couple didn't meet in a classroom, though. In fact, their "how we met" story is like it came straight from a romantic comedy.

At the time, Ed had just moved into a student house that was once occupied by Heidi. After spending days trying to use the dryer, he knew he needed to get some assistance. Heidi's name just so happened to be on a community board, so, Ed messaged her to ask if she knew how to use the dryer. Heidi showed up to help him. That's when Ed realized he just had to ask her out.

After that, there was no getting in between the two. “We knew we were going to be together forever,” Heidi said in an interview. In fact, the couple was as strong as ever four years later. Their mothers were getting along during the party, which was good since they would be in each other's lives for the long haul. But, they had no clue what was going to be said later on in the evening.

Fiona and Kay were talking with each other when they realized they had a lot of things in common. Their love for sailing vacations was one of them. Which isn't unusual for British families, who enjoy spending the cold winter months in the warmer weather of the Mediterranean. Kay began telling stories of family vacations they went on when the children were small. Then she told an interesting story.
