Bridal Bliss: With The Caribbean Sea As Their Backdrop,

Try as one might, it’s difficult to disregard a superb thing. The story of how Recent Yorkers Vanessa and Kevin met is a reminder of that. It was November 2019, and she or he first laid eyes on him on Tinder of all “places.”

“I noticed his profile a couple of times, thought he was cute but never swiped right,” Vanessa tells ESSENCE. However it was as if the universe wouldn’t let her forget Kevin. His profile kept showing up, beckoning her to swipe his way. “I spotted he kept coming up as my match. I meant to swipe right to ‘like’ but by some means it notified each of us that I had ‘super liked him.’”  

Granted, they didn’t first connect in the best way she would have hoped (“My ego wouldn’t let me tell a man initially that I ‘super liked him’”), but once they did, the energy between them was significant.

“There was just electricity,” says Kevin.

They hit it off, in conversation alone, in a way that permit them know they’d found something special.

“After a couple of nights of intriguing late-night conversations, we decided to fulfill quickly at Starbucks near my job. The chemistry intensified a lot that I didn’t want my lunch break to finish,” Vanessa says. “The remainder is history.”

The 2 would fall for one another heavy, with Kevin proposing to her nearly a yr after Tinder brought them together. She said yes, and the 2 planned a celebration of their love abroad. They said “I do” at Hotel Xcaret Mexico, tapping into their love of beaches and what they call “the boho-chic lifestyle.” With the Caribbean Sea as their backdrop, they exchanged vows on June 5, 2022 in a surprising celebration. By the tip of the yr that they had something else to have fun — the arrival of their first child, a son named Adonis.
