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.
A signature cocktail menu is displayed at the bar during the fun-filled reception. In between sips of mojitos and rum punch, guests were treated to a delicious meal prepared by top-notch chef G. Garvin. Garvin blended traditional Puerto Rican and soul food dishes, which included macaroni and cheese, roasted pork and plantains.
“G. Garvin put his foot in that food!” shares Essence about the tasty cuisine.
