Love Is In The Air | Couple Marries At Emporia State University Library

EMPORIA, Kan. (WIBW) - Love is in the air at Emporia State University.

ESU student Hongzhi Meng of China and Alex Dowdell, a Ph.D. student at KU Med, got married Friday in the Learning Commons at White Library on campus.

The couple couldn't get married at the courthouse so they decided the library was very inviting and symbolic since it's a place that Hongzhi spends most of her time studying.

The two met on last summer, and as Alex says, he knew Hongzhi was the one.

"The way I like to tell it is, we figured out in a few months what it takes some people to figure out in years and that's just how we are I guess," said Dowdell.

Meng's family couldn't make it in for the wedding, so she carried an iPad around with her to include them in on her big day.
