instaloveIf you’re one of those people who believes in the incredible power of love . . . even YOU might be skeptical of this story.  And if you’re a person like me who’s dead inside, you DEFINITELY will be.

A woman from Murrieta, California named Erica Harris randomly connected on Instagram with a guy from New York named Arte Vann about a year ago.

Erica is surprisingly attractive for a story like this.  And Arte has a chinstrap beard.  Just throwing it out there.

They started chatting online, they sent each other videos, and then they became a couple . . . even though they’d never met in person.

And they finally took it to the next level on Friday.  Arte bought a one-way ticket to California . . . Erica met him at the airport . . . he proposed . . . and they got married on the spot.

Arte says, quote, “Don’t listen to your thoughts, don’t listen to your head.  Follow your heart, follow your soul.”  Erica says, quote, “For anybody that doesn’t believe in fairy tales anymore, who am I?  It can happen to you too.”
