A couple was married this weekend in California just five minutes after meeting each other for the very first time.

California native Erica Harris and New Yorker Arte Vann say they fell in love with each other last year after a courtship that began after a "love" click on Instagram.

The couple exchanged poems and videos over several months, making declarations of love to help bridge the time and distance.

"You don't drag your feet with real love. You leap into that like there's no tomorrow, and that's what we're doing," said Erica.

They finally met this weekend at Ontario International Airport in California.

Arte says only bought a one way ticket and the two made plans to elope minutes after he landed.

Not only did a proposal happen, but the couple then exchanged vows and shared that all-important first kiss right there inside the airport as travelers watched.
