“As the clock struck 1300 365 days Ayo, @ajd_3030 and I said I Do. I can’t believe how time flies. I am a very lucky man and I have to say that, because many times we don’t acknowledge and appreciate our luck. Meeting, dating and marrying Anthony has been a blessing for me and for this I am happy.
“Also a big thanks to friends and families who flew in from every part of the world to make it a memorable day. Here is to more years of love, kiss and laugher. In Whitney’ voice, ‘I will always love you.’
