12 couples had a Wakanda-themed mass wedding that was inspired by the Marvel movie, Black Panther, in Atlanta, Georgia. The entire event was free for the lucky 12 couples.
Nsuri.com confirms that the couples were literally guests at their own wedding as all the wedding expenses were taken care of.
To give the mass wedding a vivid Wakanda touch, the New Birth Church where the grand event took place encouraged the couples to wear African-inspired garments.

According to the New Birth senior pastor, Jamal Harrison Bryant, he was inspired to organise the event because he wanted to remove the burden of cost to couples.
“We wanted to remove the financial barriers that would burden or even deter couples from having a wedding ceremony,” said the senior pastor.
At the ceremony that was dubbed “A Wedding in Wakanda", the pastor said that weddings needed to be more about the couple’s commitment to each other than themselves.
