A couple skydived to their wedding site, a 78-year-old powerlifting grandma and a teen who landed an interview with Michelle Obama are some of the moments that captivated our attention this week. Take a look at this week in video.

Couple skydives to wedding day site

Imagine starting your wedding day with a jump out of an airplane.

That's exactly what Jeremy and Jessica van Wulven did to get to their wedding site at the base of Knik Glacier in Anchorage, Alaska.

"It was special to us because that's how we met," Jeremy said. "It was part of our lives before we met each other. So it's something we loved to do by ourselves anyways and to join together and be able to do that was something real special to us."

After the wedding, the couple had a "trash the dress" moment and went fishing in the Russian River.

Teen lands interview with Michelle Obama

At just 14 years old, a young journalist landed an interview that would be a crown jewel on the resume of veteran reporters: former First Lady Michelle Obama.

She is just one of the high-profile people the Massachusetts teen has interviewed.

The former first lady posted part of the interview with Shayna Rose on her Instagram. The two bonded over knitting. In fact, that's how the interview came about.

Rose, an honor student who wants to be a doctor someday, said their conversation weaved in some life lessons.

78-year-old participates in powerlifting competition

At just 78 years young, Linda Patterson is doing things most people her age can't do.

"I just want to be strong and there's something about working out that makes me feel so good," Patterson said.

Just a few years ago, Patterson wasn't able to lift anything.

Patterson had a lack of strength and a limited range of motion. She also lives alone and wants to be able to keep up with her two granddaughters. So, Williams wanted to make sure she could do all of that, and be mobile enough at home just in case she fell.
