Famous American journalist, editor and New York Times best-selling author, Elaine Welteroth is officially off the hook after she tied the knot with longtime partner, Jonathan Singletary earlier last week.
Elaine looked stunning a flowy white dress that had skinny straps and a lace design at the top coupling it with a simple wedding veil.
Jonathan, on the other hand, matched Elaine’s outfit as he went for an all-white suit that he coupled with white sneakers also neatly holding his dreadlocks from the back.
According to Inquisitr, an American news website, Elaine and Jonathan’s wedding was officiated by their pastor, Dr Stanely Long via Zoom, a video conferencing app.
The couple later had a virtual block party decorated with all kinds of colourful flowers that acted as their reception.
Although the couple couldn’t invite everyone in their lives, close friends and family managed to make it including one of Elaine’s closest friend, famous actress Lupita N’yongo.
The couple is said to have met at a very young age when they attended the same church, but their romance didn’t start until 2013.
The couple had also set their date before the global pandemic and although they had planned for a much bigger event, they decided to settle for a much simpler ceremony due to the lockdown.
When asked why they didn’t postpone until everything was in place, Jonathan and Elaine claim, May 10, was very important to them since it was mother’s day and they needed to pay homage to their moms.
Jonathan is a Brooklyn-based artist and songwriter.
Elaine is also famously known for being one of the judges on Project Runway, a famous fashion showcase competition in the United States of America.
