Here’s a match that we (or anyone else for that matter) never saw coming - Tinder and Delta Airlines. This unlikely but totally genius pair have swiped right on each other to bring Brooklyn a little humor and a lot of press. ‘The Delta Dating Wall’ is printed with exotic locales for singles to take selfies in front of with the tagline “World travelers are more likely to be swiped right.” True? Probably. 

... And that's not all! If you are in the NYC area you can also join in on the fun IRL at Tinder and Delta's June 17th "singles-centric" event.

For Michael Antonia the hustle has never stopped. He was the kid who mowed every lawn, shoveled every driveway and rode three paper routes. He was the teenager who built bikes out of junkyard parts and sold them to his peers, the wunderkind who started DJ-ing by night while booking and producing shows in night clubs, theaters, and festivals by day. He was also the college graduate who was swept up in the energetic orbit of Alex Calderwood, founder of Ace Hotels, a collaboration which would launch him into the design world. What is now years ago, this young father-to-be started an event production company from his dining room table during a recession and over the next few years, cultivated it to become "The Flashdance," one of the most highly regarded brands in the wedding and event industry. Even in the midst of success, Michael continued to see holes in the industry, such as the downright awful furniture at the events he produced. Naturally, he launched YEAH! Rentals in 2011 to runaway success followed by the retail counterpart, YEAH! Furniture, where thousands of hours of rigorous testing by way of weddings and parties helped him refine each design. 

The Flashdance is a creative collaboration whose disparate elements complement each other to form new approaches previously unheard of. Antonia oversees it all as the formidable godfather figure who pushes his collaborators to increase their notion of "best" by five notches, yet maintains an effortless candor in his relationships and a spring in his step as he dashes from project to project.
The Flashdance now houses 6 companies and covers nearly every aspect of event production, whether it be furniture and props from YEAH! Rentals, photo/video/design from YEAH! Weddings, or a damn good Flashdance DJ. Antonia stays closely involved as the creative director and marketing expert while also finding time to keep his DJ-ing as sharp as ever and getting his music fix at the same time by working as the music supervisor for the Ace Hotel. Antonia has been featured in Paper Magazine, NPR Marketplace, Reverie Magazine, Apartment Therapy, Remodelista, Herman Miller's blog, Refinery 29, 100 Layer Cake and Martha Stewart Weddings and has made appearances on E! & Bravo, to name a few. While this mastermind does it all, he still has room for one more passion project.

If one thing is certain, you know your love is strong when your S.O. encourages you to pursue your dreams across the country and fights to keep the love alive throughout your long distance relationship. That's just one small portion of Mike and Bernadette's love story that was founded in San Diego. After a year of Bernadette living in the hustle and bustle of New York City, Mike decided that he simply could not live with out her for one second longer and hopped on a plane to pop the big question in front of the iconic 1922 Jane's Carousel with the Brooklyn Bridge Park & Manhattan skyline in view.

Fast forward to the wedding where the couple decided on San Diego's Luce Loft for their west coast reunion and we caught up with them shortly after to get the deets on their happily ever after. Seriously, when the creative couple behind local San Diego brand, Tethermade, throws a party, you know it's going to be a visual masterpiece! We'll let the photos do the talking...
