Couple Got Married During A Black Lives Matter Protest And The Photos Are Powerful

"This turned into something that we are never, ever, ever going to forget."

Kerry-Anne Perkins and Michael Gordon didn’t plan to have their wedding day “first look” in the middle of a Black Lives Matter protest.

In fact, they’d quickly planned a small, private ceremony on June 6 after COVID-19 disrupted their original plans for a large celebration.

“We wanted our lives together to continue and not be delayed,” Kerry-Anne told Access Hollywood of why they opted for a smaller wedding rather than delaying the entire thing to a later date.

Kerry-Anne, an OB-GYN, and Michael, a wireless deployment manager, had met several years ago at a Philadelphia gym and got engaged in 2019.
