Teliana Pereira had a fairy-tale wedding in Brazil Friday, when she wed childhood sweetheart Alexandre Zornig.

Here’s more on her incredible story.

Zornig’s background is the polar opposite; his wealthy father owns a BMW dealership. 

They met at a tennis academy. But Zornig, a good junior in Brazil, knew he didn’t have the goods for a pro career.
