ATLANTA, Ga — Atlanta couple Jillian Lee and Joshua Ogundele were set to wed at the end of March in Savannah, Georgia.
But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, their plans quickly had to change. As it was obvious that an in-person ceremony wasn’t going to happen, the next best option was to go virtual.
The Rev. Thurmond N. Tillman, of the First African Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia, officiated the virtual wedding via Zoom.
The couple said their “I do’s” with more than 100 family and friends in attendance via the online app.
The ceremony was recorded, and there was even a bit of humor when the groom fell, as he spilled champagne amid popping the bottle. The bride’s grandmother joked that he truly “fell head over heels in love with her."
We are so happy to see such joyful celebrations still happening around the nation, amid the pandemic outbreak.
Congrats to the couple.
