Modern Love, the hit podcast based on the New York Times’ popular series of weekly reader-submitted essays, celebrated its 100th episode January 31st. And this week marks the debut collaboration with Zola, the company reinventing the wedding planning and registry experience.

Zola and Modern Love hit the road and collected everyday love stories in a 1970s 21-foot camper that was transformed into a “Registry On Wheels,” complete with a custom recording studio built for two and hundreds of gifts from Zola’s store.

Zola stopped in New York, Chicago, and Washington D.C., where couples told their love story in the studio, while trying out goodies and tasting delicious wedding cakes from local bakeries.

The stories were hilarious and heartbreaking, compelling and contemporary.  We are so proud to debut one of these stories after Modern Love. All participants were entered to win $2500 in Zola gifts.

Our first story, available after the podcast, features the moving story of John and Mayme. An Indianapolis couple who found out the true meaning of, "in sickness and in health."

We are still collecting- but only until Valentine's Day! Record your story with your voice note app and email it to Read the official sweepstakes rules here.
