More than ever we want to read and see more love stories. We are so desperate for hope and promise that we are bing watching countless movies that will keep us distracted from the overwhelming reports of dealing with the Coronavirus aka COVID-19. And hope is exactly what we found on April 10, 2020, while virtually attending the nuptials of Justin and Michelle Jacob in New York City. We need some sort of reminder of the promise of a beautiful future.
Justin Jacob, a thriving musical artist, entertainer, and writer tied the knot to his fellow artists, musician, and the love of his life Michelle Segura. The two met on the Metro-North in New York and the rest is history.
It was music that brought them together. “We first traveled the tri-state NYC area performing–hitting all stages which is how our friendship first started. My favorite shows were held in Sobs (sounds of Brazil) and the legendary Apollo Theater.” says the blushing bride, Michelle, now Michelle Jacob.
It was while Justin was traveling in Italy, on July 19, where he proposed, on the beach by a beautiful sunset with amazing weather and surrounded by people who admire our relationship.
While both artists were over the moon with excitement about celebrating their union. Justin couldn’t help but think of those in Italy dealing with the virus, but he admits he felt their presence, all his loved ones even his business partner, Edo Ferragamo a fellow musician from Italy.
Michelle continues by saying “I just came off a European tour. I was so inspired and proud of watching his performances I quit my job just to travel for the first time out of the country to support Justin during his career moves.” Now that is love.
