The Coronavirus pandemic may have postponed or cancelled quite a few wedding plans for intending couples but it has not stopped a determined Nigerian Man and his Jamaican Bride as they recently sealed their union in a very unique and safe way.
The Nigerian man, identified as Anthony Esho married his Jamaican wife, Simone Isaacs, in a very intimate and beautiful wedding at the Washington D.C. War Memorial park in the U.S.
The beautiful wedding, unlike the popular crowd-filled occasion, was just witnessed by two family members from Anthony and two family members from Simone (parent figures). Another person present was the officiating minister and the photographer.
The proud groom shared photos from the special ceremony on his social media page and wrote;
“Unfortunately we couldn’t have a “traditional” wedding but I thank God for the journey and wouldn’t have had it any other way. A lot of people have told me they are proud of me. Quite frankly I’m very proud of myself. As a boy, my mother preached a lot but a few always stood out. The woman who taught me how to love told me to do things the right way. She told me to go to counseling before the engagement, get married, then buy a house and lastly have children. As tough as it was to be patient I stand here today the happiest man in the world because my wife was worth it all. I pray this feeling for all of my friends and family it’s nothing like it I promise you. •“
