One of the things the sweethearts love to do together is dine and be social. "We enjoy trying new vegan and vegetarian restaurants," Jasmine shares. "We also enjoy spending time with our friends and family."

Marcellus' first impression of Jasmine was that she had a great sense of humor and he could tell she was the one for him from the start. "When we first met I just wanted to be around Jasmine as much as possible because we connected and she inspired me to be better," he says. "That’s when love hit me!"

Jasmine's friends and family think very highly of Marcellus, but one of the strongest connections her man has made is the one with her father. "He and my father have really hit it off," she shares. "It’s great for me to see my future husband be good friends with my dad."

If you’re spying on Jasmine and Marcellus on a Friday night, you’ll probably catch them dancing -- one of their favorite pastimes.

"I knew Marcellus was 'the one' on our first official date," says Jasmine. "We talked for hours, and I had never been able to talk with someone like that. It’s hard to explain because when you meet your soulmate it’s a feeling that words just can’t describe."

Jasmine and Marcellus can agree that they make each other better every day, but she tell us that her husband-to-be is the best man for her because he truly understands her. "We often know what the other person is thinking before anyone says a word," she admits.
