Actress Essence Atkins recently got married to her boyfriend Jamie Mendez who she met on a popular internet dating site last year in February. According to Essence, she met Jamie on match.com and the two have been inseparable ever since:
“I wrote him a quick little note that I had read his profile, and then I signed off, Happy SAD Day – that’s Single Awareness Day,” says Essence, 37, who appeared on the UPN sitcom Half and Half.
A week later, Essence and Jamie had their first date and a year after that were engaged. The wedding took place at Ambassador Mansion and Gardens in Pasadena, CA. The favors consisted of match books and travel size candles for people coupled up and the single guests received six months free membership on Match.Com. Jamie who is Puerto-Rican was surprised that his wife got him an original salsa band for the weeding.
We’re happy someone found true love, but on Match.com… y’all know we couldn’t let that go.
