The Gospel According To Woodstock - What God Hath Joined Together, Let No Man Put Asunder

The famous photograph of Nick and Bobbi Ercoline taken by Burk Uzzle at Woodstock in 1969.

This image of young love became the iconic cover of the original Woodstock album and movie poster.

Nick and Bobbie had met just a few months earlier and decided that since Woodstock was so close to where they lived that they just couldn't miss the event.

According to Burk Uzzle it was Sunday morning August 17, 1969, while 500,000 sleepy concert goers were waking up to Jefferson Airplane on stage at Woodstock, that he photographed this now famous embrace of a young couple in love.

More than forty years later Nick and Bobbi, both in their early 60's now, are still together. They married two summers after Woodstock, and they still live less than an hour's drive from the original concert site in upstate New York.

"All because two people fell in love"
~Quote on the wall of Nick and Bobbie's home just above their iconic Woodstock photo

"What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder."
~Jesus (Mark 10:9)

Peace, Love, and Light!
