As they left the ceremony, they found themselves in the middle of a protest — a crowd of thousands carrying Black Lives Matter signs. The protesters greeted the couple with cheers and applause.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

The newlyweds left their small outdoor ceremony and found themselves in the middle of a protest, a crowd of people carrying Black Lives Matter signs. So the couple joined them - wedding dress and tux, big smiles and fists in the air.
