What happens when a very shy, reserved and attractive girl whose angelic voice commands the attention of whoever she encounters meets a handsome man who applies a different approach to charm, being such a perfect gentleman that he seemed surreal? Romantically put: a match made in heaven.

Jermaine Wilson and Alaina Miller met on holy grounds back in April of 2007 at the Portmore Seventh-day Adventist Church. The two formed a friendship which presented no hope of going above or beyond. So they parked their aspiring relationships status and went their separate ways, looking for love with other people. Little did they know that fate would have them cross paths again eight years later.

Jermaine, who always knew she was the one, had this to say about Alaina: "She's beautiful, romantic, kind and smart. She thinks about the well-being of others. And she always encourages me to do better and grow stronger." While Alaina, who was hesitant to jump right into a relationship when he professed his love for her, shared that she felt a void in his absence, as if a part of her had gone missing. Only then and there did she realise he was her happily ever after.

 

POPPING THE QUESTION

 

Eight years of friendship and three years of courtship later, Jermaine decided to pop the question on their family vacation. "I made plans with my friends for the proposal so everything would be accurate and on point. I went to the a la carte to make preparations with the chef. The ring was placed on the dish she ordered for her desert."

Alaina welcomed the huge surprise with open arms, bursting into happy tears as she said yes. Jermaine was consumed with emotions, having seen his soon-to-be bride in tears. "When I saw the emotions on her face, how happy she was, I could not hold back. That was indeed the happiest moment of my life."

From there, the lovely couple planned their wedding, with assistance from family members and friends - thanks to them, they said, everything went smoothly.

On August 5 of this year, the two became one, saying I DO to long and lasting love in the presence of God, family and friends where they first met: at the Portmore Seventh-day Adventist Church. They kept their nuptial bliss going at the Pollyanna Caterers for the reception. "It was an enchanting wedding. We were very happy. And thanks to God, we were contented by the way in which the days' proceedings flowed. We were showered with gifts and well wishes and we couldn't be any more grateful to have each other," the newly-weds declared.
