(CMR) What do you do when COVID-19 postpones your wedding and you see an opportunity to have a physical wedding at a demonstration aimed at fighting racial discrimination?
You take your shot and have your wedding at a protest.
That’s what Kerry Anne and Michael Gordon did, the couple tied the knot in front of thousands of protestors at a Black Lives Matter rally on June 6, 2020.
The couple’s whose bizarre wedding ceremony went viral and landed them inside the prestigious Vogue magazine told the publication that they met at a gym in 2016.
Gordon proposed to Kerry-Anne, a then medical student from Jamaica in 2018.
Soon after the engagement, Kerry Anne completed her residency and began her new full-time job, and set out planning her big day which was set for May 26.
Little did Kerry-Anne, now an ob-gyn, know but the coronavirus pandemic would make her hopes of a summer wedding almost impossible; nonetheless, the couple told Vogue they were committed to having their big day.
Nothing could stop the duo, who eventually made their dreams a reality and used their challenging circumstances to encourage others in the process.
The newlyweds told Vogue that they will be going to Jamaica to celebrate their honeymoon.
