In anticipation of our very first Black Love Gala, we sat down with a few everyday couples to hear about their journeys to happily ever after. Come celebrate your love in NYC on October 13 at the first-ever ESSENCE Black Love gala! Click here to get your tickets today! Dave and Jehan’s love story first began as a long-distance romance that ultimately brought them together in NYC. Jehan says it was Dave’s persistence that ultimately won her over, while Dave says Jehan’s breathtaking beauty was an instant draw. The rest, as they say, was history. Today, the couple shares a family together and even recently celebrated 5 years of marriage. Check out the video above to hear a little more about Dave and Jehan’s story and then be sure to grab your tickets to come celebrate your lovestory at the 2018 ESSENCE Black Love Gala.
