It’s finally time for Angela and Michael to get married. Angela puts on her white dress, complete with a veil. It’s a nerve-racking experience, considering Michael might not be able to come to the United States to live with her despite their best efforts to make it happen.

“As we get closer to the ceremony, I keep thinking what a risk I’m taking in marrying Michael,” Angela shares with producers. “Because there is a chance that we get married and Michael still won’t be able to come to the U.S. But, I know marrying Michael is the only way to be together in the United States.”

Everyone takes their places, and Angela walks down the aisle toward her future. Michael is wearing a purple suit and waits for his bride on the other side of the aisle. They come together, and Michael unveils his soon-to-be wife. Michael says his vows first, and Angela gets a little teary during his part.

When it’s Angela’s turn, she starts to repeat the words to the vows. However, when the person performing the ceremony says, “to obey,” Angela reacts. “What?” she asks. It’s repeated to her again, and she seems unsure of how to reply. “Obey what?” Angela asks. “And obey who?” Then Angela laughs, and says the words, albeit almost inaudibly. They get married, and it’s a sweet moment for everyone involved.

Next, it’s time for the wedding reception. Angela and Michael change clothes and head out to the dance floor. All of a sudden, Michael starts throwing money on his new wife. Michael tells producers that it’s part of a traditional wedding in Nigeria.

“Traditional Nigerian wedding, you know, the groom showers the bride money to show love, and happiness, support. It’s sweet and fun,” Michael explains to the cameras.

Everyone gets their groove on out on the dance floor, and after having some fun, Angela crowns Michael the king, but adds, “So I’m going to crown you king, but you do remember, I am queen who crowned you king.” She laughs, and it’s a fun moment for the two of them.
