Jess Conte Blissful Wedding Day Revisit; Age, Wedding Pictures - All Facts
Like every other millennial romance, the love affair between YouTube sensations Jess Conte, age 22, and her American husband, Gabriel Conte, age 24, too started in the proverbial "DM."
Discerning the commonality - love for music & dedication to Christian faith among others - between her and then-up-&-coming internet personality Gabriel, the Brisbane Australia-native messaged him on Instagram, using a church as the pretext.
What spiraled after the initial DM is true of telling of how millennials find love in the age of the internet.
Journey From Engagement Ring To Wedding Ring
In 2014, Jess went from being a small-time YouTuber to an overnight sensation after her video "When Mama Isn't Home / When Mom Isn't Home" hit the viral status. While on the other side of the Atlantic, Gabriel was beginning to garner traction because of his videos on the now-defunct Vine.
In less than two years, their lives intertwined forever and for good, following a brief exchange in the DMs. If the unbridled faith in God brought them together, it was the recognition of the undeniable chemistry by the couple that kept them as a unit through the trying times.
Of all hurdles, the distance posed the most imminent threat to their budding romance. But, instead of letting it weigh heavy on their hearts, Jess and her boyfriend Gabriel used it as a fuel to intensify their bond. And, nine months after the first DM exchange, the smitten couple got engaged in September of 2016.

The engagement ring, a platinum cushion cut shaped ring with double pave setting, used during the proposal by Gabriel turned out to be a custom-designed, expressly made to mirror a ring that Jess once adored.
Like their engagement, the smitten duo didn't waste any time to tie the knot. Three months after sharing the commitment to get hitched, they changed their engagement ring for the wedding ring.

And, to think that the genesis of the duo's inspiring love story got its kickstart via a DM is mindboggling, no less.
