Tying the knot before 150 of their closest friends and family in a traditional wedding were Shellen McDonald, 19, originally from Puerto Cabeza, Nicaragua, and Oshane Hunt, 24, originally from Kingston, Jamaica.

The nuptials took place on Feb. 7 at the Savannah Seventh-day Adventist Church on Shamrock Road, Bodden Town.

The bride was given away by her father, Nathaniel McDonald, and serving her duties as maid of honor was Kayla Stewart in the ceremony officiated by Pastor Wesley Nyack, and planned by Rita Ebanks.

The couple first met a church camp years ago.

Just last year, Mr. Hunt was prompted to bend the knee at their home and ask for Shellen’s hand in marriage.

Mrs. Hunt’s favorite aspect of the wedding was the moment Pastor Nyack pronounced the couple husband and wife, whereas Mr. Hunt’s was seeing the future Mrs. Hunt show up to the church.

Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the Bodden Town Civic Centre.
Also in attendance was the couple’s 7-month old son, Oshane Jr.
