Actress Essence Atkins and financial executive Jaime Mendez made their love official in a star-studded outdoor ceremony on Saturday, September 30, 2009. The duo first connected through match.com on Valentine's Day 2008 and are now happily husband and wife.
The newlyweds share a quiet moment during their reception over fruity cocktails. The couple changed shortly after the ceremony. Essence opted for another ivory dress designed by Jaime’s cousin Angel Rivera. The feminine design fit her marvelously, which is quite impressive considering she never had a fitting!
