Blake and Jasmin: 90 Day Fiance Journey
Blake Abelard (29), a model, and Jasmin Lahtinen (27), a music producer, met online and developed feelings for each other. Blake flew down to Finland to meet Jasmin and was totally smitten by her beauty, sensibility, and style. He proposed to Jasmin on his second visit and applied for her K-1 visa. Blake is a divorcee and had already been married once when he was 19.
Although the duo appeared very much in love, Blake’s family and friends were concerned for him as they felt Jasmin was using him as a gateway for a green card, to get close to her sister Janette, who stays in the same city as Blake, Los Angeles.
Despite the disapproval of his friends and family, Blake brought Jasmin to America. The next morning Blake had set up a meeting with his friends, but she wasn’t feeling up to it and came across as cold towards them.
Blake was disappointed but kept to himself, thinking he mustn’t try to change her outspoken attitude. On her first meeting with Blake’s parents, Jasmin learned from his mom Kerline, that since they’re traditional Christians, they aren’t allowed to sleep in the same room till they get married. The couple compromised with it.
What put the maximum pressure on Blake and his parents, was when Jasmin revealed that she wanted to stay at home, focus on herself and have kids five years down the line, instead of going to work to earn money. Although she loves Blake, Jasmin doesn’t see herself blending 100% into Blake’s partying and drinking lifestyle. Talking about Blake’s music, Jasmin said on the show, “If Blake was not my fiance, I don’t think he would be my favorite artist. I don’t like rap music.”
The couple got into a heated argument after Blake asked Jasmine to accompany him to his friend’s party, while she wanted to spend some alone time with him. Although he reluctantly agreed, they ended up fighting, and Jasmin left for her sister’s place, when Blake drank a lot at a restaurant. The two patched up later. Ultimately, the two families met, and the couple decided to have an intimate wedding. Blake convinced Jasmin to let his friends attend his big day. On their wedding day, a nervous Blake told the cameras that he would do anything for her. Check out their wedding pictures.
