    Sometimes love is just written in the stars. That was definitely the case for this gorgeous couple. Back when they first became friends (in middle school), Chris declared that one day he would marry Jasmine. And, on his 30th birthday, when he popped the question, he turned his adolescent proclamations into a self-fulfilling prophesy.

    It happened like this: Jasmine had planned a romantic weekend to celebrate Chris’ birthday, and when they were dancing to their favorite song, he spun her around and got down on bended knee. Smooth, right? You just can’t make this stuff up.

    To celebrate their fairy-tale love story, they decided to tie the knot in a mansion — a Spanish villa, to be exact. Their big day had a classic, vintage vibe complete with rustic candelabras, antique clocks, and soft peach, gold, and cream details. From the bride’s custom gown (designed by her cousin) to the way the couple honored their diverse cultural backgrounds during the reception (which involved a Nigerian traditional dance and a Jamaican wedding rum cake), this wedding was full of crib-worthy moments. See all the stunning details (including their genius guestbook idea) in the slideshow ahead.
