According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Gordons then marched with the group to towards City Hall.

In the background of the video, activists hold signs that read, "Black Lives>White Feelings," and "Vote 4 Justice."

In another widely shared video, the couple enjoyed a loving kiss as the crowd roared in celebration.

On May 24, the bride posted a message to her Instagram accompanying a beautiful set of photos, detailing the timeline of their engagement.

"7 years ago, he asked, I said no, he waited patiently" the caption started. "5 years ago, he asked, I said maybe, he acted patiently."

Ultimately, their story had a happy ending.

"1 year ago, he asked," Perkins concluded the tale. "I said YES!"
