Take two mavens of the art world, a planned proposal in Cuba that wasn’t and a wedding surrounded by 900-year-old Redwood trees in Carmel, California, and you get a pretty unique love story. California native Kelsey Lee Offield, owner of the contemporary art gallery GUSFORD in Los Angeles, first met globally renowned visual and conceptual artist Cole Sternberg during—what would ultimately become—a life-changing trip to Miami’s Art Basel in 2013. “We were originally introduced as artist and gallerist,” recalls Kelsey, who soon discovered that her future-groom would be attending the same luncheon and holiday dinner the following day. She took advantage of the scheduling serendipity by coordinating to see Cole in-between the two events. “After the luncheon, we went to the Soho House West Hollywood to kill time before that evening’s Moveable Feast, an annual fundraiser hosted by the Los Angeles Nomadic Division. That afternoon, we jokingly started telling everyone that we were married. Three years later, we will be attending this year’s Holiday Movable Feast as a married couple.”
