This weekend in Florence, Italy, Pastor Rich Wilkerson officiated the “world’s most talked about wedding” and married “world’s most talked about couple”.  And as it is written somewhere in the Book of Revelation (probably not), he has now become the “world’s most talked about pastor”.  From People Magazine to E! to The Daily Mail, everybody’s gushing over the pastor who married Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. That’s him to the right in the photo above.

What most of the publications fail to point out, and what’s somewhat relevant to our area, is that the gorgeous blonde in the far left of that photo is Pastor Rich’s wife and Shreveport native DawnChere’ Duron Wilkerson.  If her name doesn’t sound familiar, you might recognize the names her parents, Denny and DeAnza Duron, pastors of Shreveport Community Church and founders of Evangel Christian Academy.

Rich and DawnChere’ frequently come back to Shreveport to visit family, and occasionally Rich will preach at Shreveport Community Church. Kim and Kanye have yet to make an appearance in the Shreveport-Bossier area, but maybe that will change with their new connection to the area. What would you do if you walked into Superior Steakhouse and saw Kim and Kanye? Keep your comments non-violent and PG, please…
