Chocolate News: Essence Atkins Finds Her ‘Match’ Online

Actress Essence Atkins (Half & Half, Delivers Us From Eva) tied the knot in Pasadena, California on September 26th.

She met her new husband, Jaime Mendez on the site Match.com. The two “connected” on Valentine’s Day of 2008 and have been inseparable ever since. Their simple but elegant ceremony was held at the Ambassador Mansion & Gardens in Pasadena. They opted not to have attendants, creating a special day just for them.

The bride wore a gown by Steven Yearick and shoes by Jimmy Choo. She carried a bouquet of ivory, green, and violet roses. Essence and Jaime opted for Puerto Rican and Soul Food dishes and red velvet cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake.

Essence surprised her new hubby with a Salsa band and a DJ spun tunes for the celebration.

Guests included the actress’ buddies Sanaa Lathan and Gabrielle Union and NBA star Dwayne Wade. Congratulations Essence!
