The clock struck midnight at Elevation Church University City and before you knew it Jillian + Charles were exchanging their marriage vows to start off 2017.
Elevation Church's annual Praise Party to ring in the New Year took place at its permanent locations with plenty of streamers, confetti and fun. But behind the scenes Bride, Jillian, hid in the Green Room with her two kids, Deshawn and Nia. They counted down and cheered in the New Year while Groom, Charles, worshipped in the auditorium, calming his nerves and readying himself. And at 12:30 when the crowds had subsided and after praying over their commitment they were married in front of a small group of friends and family.
Happy 2017, Jillian + Charles—may you share many more New Years kisses together.
