While the ceremony was conducted by the Dare to Imagine Church, priest Kevin Johnson.
Fox News Host Ed Henry was the first to reveal the wedding pics through his Twitter.

While Ed revealed the wedding pic, rev. Kevin Johnson was the one to share the inside images of the beautiful ceremony with the public.
A week before the wedding, Kristen and John shared their happiness of obtaining a marriage license at Philadelphia’s City Hall through Instagram.
Kristen and John got engaged on 24th June 2016 after John proposed her near Lincoln Memorial at Washington D.C on their way to the restaurant for dinner.
Friends, I've waited nearly 40 years for this and wanted to share that John Hughes @salatrix and I got engaged Friday night in Washington, D.C. Thank you to a quick thinking jogger, Anna Perkinson, for capturing the moment. And thank you John for making me the happiest and luckiest girl in the world. #worththewait #atlast
Kristen revealed she first met with the marketing Director of Merck in July 2016 through her best friend’s mother, where she stated:
"I'm 40 years old. I say that to give hope to other women who maybe haven't found The One in their 20s. So two summers ago, my best friend from high school's mother said, "I'd like you to meet John Hughes. He is their family friend's son. I had just about given up on the idea of finding someone, but we had dinner in Philadelphia, and the rest is history."
