Saying ‘I Do’ Under the Sun’s Eclipse: Texas Couple’s Magical Moment

As they say, all the stars must align for the ideal wedding, and Kathryn Jordan and Micah Simoneaux are certain to have it.

When the moon moves in front of the star at the center of our solar system, a couple from the North Texas city of McKinney is being married.

Just before totality, the couple will exchange vows. After that, everyone in attendance will put on eclipse glasses and view this once-in-a-lifetime Texas experience.

Their neighbor observed them stumbling to watch the annular solar eclipse in October using a homemade viewer, so they decided to tie the knot on Monday during the event.

“He had some extra glasses he let us borrow and he pointed out on the side. It said total solar eclipse April 8, 2024, and we were already discussing wedding dates and just kind of looked at each other and were like yea, we both knew,” Jordan stated.

There is also an eclipse theme to the couple’s wedding. Visitors will receive eclipse glasses, which are available in yellow and orange colors.

A solar eclipse is expected to pass over North Texas on Monday for a few hours. Since another solar eclipse over the United States is not predicted to happen until 2044, this event is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
