ST. LOUIS — A recently married St. Louis couple has quite the story to share.

In June 2012, Kasey Bergh thought she was sending a text message to a co-worker. The only problem? She sent it to the wrong number, according to the St. Louis Dispatch.

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 ;)”

Bergh replied and apologized for the mistake. She explained she was in Denver to work on a project and was having trouble communicating with co-workers.

The two soon figured out they have a lot in common. For the next week, they exchanged dozens of text messages.

Three years later, the rest is history.

Despite their 30-year age difference, the couple married on June 27 — exactly three years after the errant text message that started it all.
