Jamande Jones and Geniene Lucas are both students at the Brody School of Medicine in Greenville and are both in Zambia for a 4 week mission trip. While there they decided to say I do.
Geniene told us, “We were planning for a wedding here, but I love Africa, Dr. Irons was all for it, and thought this would be something you can't repeat."
Dr. Thomas Irons, a professor at Brody not only planned the mission trip but also married the two off.
So not only are the love birds ecstatic to begin their lives together, they're also thrilled about the way in which they kicked it off.
According to Geniene, “Giving back to the people there, that's going to be a big part of our marriage, want to give back to people here as well."
The wedding date was Superbowl Sunday, the two got married along the Zambezi River.
The team from Greenville will be in Zambia for the next 4 weeks providing as much medical assistance as possible. Once back, the newlyweds will be taking a two week honeymoon, but a little bit closer to home!
