Depending on how you look at it, Erica Harris and Arte Vann either only knew each other for a few minutes before getting married or for almost a whole year. Harris, a mother of three from California, first noticed New Yorker Vann on Instagram last March, when she randomly came across his profile picture and decided she wanted to get to know him better. He noticed her after she liked a few of his pictures and responded by tagging her in a selfie

From there, they started talking on the phone, but things got intense quickly and both of them pulled back, deleting their accounts and cutting off contact. They got in back in touch, however, after Vann got in a car accident. They reconnected and commenters suggested they get married (always listen to commenters, folks).

With their long distance relationship newly rekindled, Vann bought a one-way plane ticket from New York to Ontario International Airport (which is in California, go figure), where they met for the first time and promptly got hitched, with God as the officiator. They asked the local news to cover their story so Vann's mother, who wasn't able to be there, could watch.​
