Meryl davis charlie white dating

"When we were renovating our home in Detroit, I wanted to incorporate sort of a French countryside element.I stumbled upon this Instagram account where this woman was sharing the renovation of an 18th century farmhouse in Provence." The property in question was Le Mas des Poiriers, a 65-acre farm outside of Avignon with a seven bedroom farmhouse and cottage owned by Connecticut couple Shauna Varvel and her husband, who spent three years renovating the property after purchasing it in 2015.Hailing from the suburbs of Detroit, an international hub for professional and competitive skating, Meryl Davis spent much of her young life training to achieve the heights of Olympics greatness that she reached with partner Charlie White at the 2014 winter Olympics, when the duo took gold in ice dancing.

Meanwhile her now-husband Fedor Andreev, himself a professional skater, was in some ways the opposite—born in Russia, he moved to Canada as a child with his mother, Marina Zoueva, who would later go on to be Meryl's longtime coach.

From there, he lived in a number of cities, including several years living and training in Detroit.

"We'd been dating for a long time and we've loved one another for a long time, and yet the experience of sharing that moment with each other was so beautiful.

It's probably my favorite memory ever up to this point." And that's some stiff competition: after all, for an Olympic medalist and champion, there are plenty of spectacular memories to choose from.

As they make their way back to their guests, the blue kiss of twilight turns buttery yellow under strings of lights woven between a lane of stretching plane trees, their friends and family seated for a feast beneath the glow of the lights.

"We just kept taking deep breaths and trying to take it in because I think that was one of the most impactful moments," says the bride, Meryl Davis.

They were the first wedding planners we really spoke to and we were sold right away," says Meryl.

"It feels like planning a destination wedding in Europe for just under a hundred people should be really stressful and complicated, but our planners made it such a pleasure and so easy." For two people who have spent much of their young lives globetrotting and competing on the world stage, it's hardly a surprise that Meryl and Fedor aren't exactly your typical couple, nor could theirs be your typical wedding.

"That probably tells you something about our personalities too, but I wanted to not draw the ceremony out too long because the summer gets pretty hot and people are wearing suits.

So we wanted to keep it as intimate as possible—maybe 10 to 12 minutes total." At the reception, the couple opted for a parent dance instead of the typical father-daughter dance.

"Once we made that decision that it was going to be the destination, we wanted to keep everything else as simple as possible," Meryl explains.
