"We wanted a simple ceremony with our family and close friends," said David Pierre to SNA.
Pierre, 47 years old, decided to tie the knot with Veronica after living together for six years.
The newlyweds have a three-year-old daughter, named Paris.
Pierre, aged 47, was previously married and divorced, but he told SNA that this was the first time that he had married in church.

For now, Pierre says he and Veronica have not yet decided where they will go for their honeymoon.
