Congrats to Vashtie [Kola] and designer Emil Boye who have revealed they became wife and husband at New York’s City Hall in March. Engaged in December of last year with plans for a big marriage ceremony and bash this year, the couple were inspired to take a different path because of the likely disruption of COVID-19.
In a statement to Complex, Vashtie said, “In 2019, I got engaged and planned to have a big celebratory wedding in 2020. COVID-19 had other plans, so we postponed the celebration and decided in March to secretly get married at City Hall.”
True to themselves, the couple chose to celebrate in the looks they’re known for wearing. Breaking down their respective ‘fits, Vashtie explained, “To honor tradition I wore all white, but to be true to myself I donned an ensemble consisting of a white Supreme Hanes t-shirt, white Dickies, white [Nike] Air Force 1 Lows, and a custom Durag Veil by Evita Loca. My now-husband stayed true to his Danish style wearing a minimal look of all black and Retro Mid Jordan 1s.”
