We were honored to take part in the first-ever wedding to take place in the newly opened University Medical Center of New Orleans on Friday, April 22, 2016. Yolanda Welsh and Michael Cheeks had been looking forward to their wedding, planned for November 2016, since Michael proposed last August. Their plans changed when Yolanda was admitted to UMC last week and they learned that her stage 4 kidney disease was now at stage 5. Michael and Yolanda decided to move up their wedding and contacted the hospital’s attorney and staff for guidance on notarizing their marriage paperwork.
