Birthday Bash & Wedding Party Rolled in One
As per reports from Nola, the WVUE chief meteorologist and his businessman husband held the party for their friends and family at the downtown eatery NOCHI.
The celebration was initially set up as a birthday party. Only later did the newly wedded couple announce that they had gotten married just hours before.
In another report from the same outlet, it was reported that the celebrations included a weather-themed birthday cake.
The wedding party consisted of the couple's pet Boston terrier Dolly who was with the newlyweds on the altar as the "best dog."
Bernard's new husband, Urstadt, also celebrated his April birthday on the same day.
In the following months, Bernard put up Instagram posts of his own to share moments from their big day.
On May 10, 2019, Bernard put up a monochrome snap from the night of his wedding. He was clad in what appeared to be a gray suit while his husband donned a black suit.
The next month the meteorologist took to his Instagram to celebrate Pride Month. He shared how his journey as a gay man was "not unlike many others."
Although he faced a few obstacles along the way, he acknowledged that the path could have been much harder.
Still, in the picture that came alongside that caption, it was evident that his journey had found quite the milestone. Bernard and his husband were all smiles and holding onto one another in the heartwarming snap.
