ST. LOUIS (AP) – A married St. Louis couple is sharing their unlikely love story about three years after the mistaken text message that forged their relationship.

In June 2012, Kasey Bergh accidentally sent a text to Henry Glendening, a complete stranger.

Bergh’s message read:

“Hey, it’s Kasey. I was supposed to connect w Maria @ the park but her plane was delayed so I’m at the Westin. Wanted to see if I could connect w anyone else.”

Henry Glendening, a complete stranger, was on the other end of the errant text message. Instead of ignoring the text message, Glendening responded:

“Sorry you’ve got the wrong number. But if i wasnt headed to work i’d b down to hang ;)”

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the pair continued communicating after realizing they had a lot in common and met in person for the first time a week later.

Despite a 30-year age difference, Bergh and Glendening’s connection flourished, and they moved in together within two months.

Exactly two years after the errant text message, Glendening proposed.

The couple married June 27 near the St. Louis riverfront.
