Check out this “true love” story of a couple named Lasheba and Thomas Cunningham, who recently got married the in the food court at Harrisburg East Mall in Pennsylvania, after failing to secure an affordable venue — and the clock ticking down to their wedding date of February 22nd.
Meet Paula Flores Da Silva White, the lovely wife of actor Brian White. The two married over the weekend on August 28th, 2010 in Beverly Hills at All Saints Parish Church and a reception followed at The Foundry on Melrose.
White, 35, a former NFL player for New England Patriots and the son of former NBA Boston Celtics legend Jo Jo White, popped the “big question” to marketing executive Paula Flores DaSilva back in January 2010 while vacationing on St. Thomas.
After popping the question to Paula, Brian posted a note on his Facebook page explaining his strong love for his longtime lady.
Brian writes on his Facebook page:
1.27.10 What falling in love with Paula Da Silva taught me…
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so out of control that you have to transform your life…” -Elizabeth Gilbert
