Jamie Coles & Dionté Rivers

Venue: Wyndham Virginia Beach Oceanfront in Virginia Beach, VA

Honeymoon: None

Home: Chesapeake, VA

Jamie is a wireless coordinator at The New York Times Co. Dionté is a Web developer at Easton Advertising. During a 2010 St. Patrick’s Day parade, Jamie spotted Dionté in the crowd and threw gold coins at him to get his attention. Dionté came over and introduced himself and the lucky pair have since been inseparable. The duo’s compatibility and communication are the keys to their success.

He knew he was in love when…

She was both the first and last person I thought of everyday.

She knew she was in love when…

I found myself daydreaming about him and being so excited about the thought of seeing him for our daily dates. We literally saw each other every day for the first year of our relationship. And till this day we have only been apart for a total of 10 days since the day we met.

In 10 years we will…

Genuinely happy, successful, God loving entrepreneurs with three or four children, one or two dogs and actively counseling young couples thinking about entering into marriage. We learned so much from our own premarital counseling experience that we would love to return those favors and pass on that knowledge.

Before the groom got married, he wishes someone had told him…

To prepare myself for the amount of pressure I was going to face, from both sides of the family, for me and my wife to start having children.

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

Ditto to what my husband said. Our parents are extremely ready for grandchildren from us. We just have to remind them that when we are ready, we will let them know.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Play piano.

Our nicknames for each other are…

“Goop Monster” for Dionté because he works out and sweats a ton but insists on coming home dripping of sweat and giving Jamie a hug and “Honey” for Jamie. Although Jamie’s nickname may not be very creative the name does have great meaning.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

In the house watching scary movies.

Our songs are…

Beyoncé’s “1+1” and Jamie Foxx’s “When I First Saw You.”

Our perfect date night is…

Walking in the sand on the beach with wine.
