Frontliners Jom Rhod Gerona and Jerahcel Mae Torrentira have proven that love conquers all as the two exchanged wedding vows amid the pandemic.
KAMI learned that the newlyweds, who are both frontliners against the fight with COVID-19, have opted to hold a wedding ceremony at the local hospital they are currently working at.
Jonie Semeros, the couple's official photographer, uploaded photos from Jom and Jerahcel's wedding on his social media account as well.
Jom is stationed at the records section of the hospital while Jerahcel is assigned at the diagnostic department.
According to the article by ABS-CBN News (authored by Marty Go), the couple's wedding celebration was held at one of the conference rooms at the Bacolod Adventist Medical Center.
Jerahcel and Jom exchanged 'I do's' earlier this week on April 8, Wednesday.

The people who attended their wedding only included one photographer and their four principal sponsors.
