Couple overcomes addiction, gets married at MB shelter

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – After spending more than 14 years together, one Mississippi couple has tied the knot at a Myrtle Beach shelter Friday.

Leon and Angela Davis were married at Street Reach Mission, celebrating their more than 14 year relationship. Both Leon and Angela battled addiction together.

Leon and Angela have only been in Myrtle Beach for about a year, but said the support and help they have received from Street Reach has been incredible.

According to Angela, their wedding was coordinated completely thanks to volunteers at Street Reach.

So what's next for the couple? "Look for jobs. Get on our feet," Leon said.
