My homies Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker finally made it official on April 4 — and they’re sharing their day only with In Touch! It was truly an amazing event and I am blessed to be able to be there for my friends and share in their “Come to America” themed wedding.
Check out the inside details by clicking below.
My girl Kandi is married now. She is married now! The new wife told In Touch that her wedding day was amazing, she says
“The whole thing was like a fairy tale!”
A fairy tale is the best way to describe their big day. The couple had their at Alanta’s Le Fais Do-Do event facility in front of 300 guests. Kandi — who really knows how to make an entrance — emerged from behind a wall of ostrich-feather fans in a custom $20,000 Reco Chapple gown with a 12-foot train.
Kandi talks candidly about the details that went into her extravagant wedding which she worked on for the past two months. She says,
“I didn’t know if I was going to be able to pull this all together. I couldn’t wait around hoping things would get better. I just had to do it and hope for the best.”
Mama Joyce who was not a fan of the relationship was super supportive of her daughter and the wedding. Mama Joyce told In Touch,
“Time will tell if Todd gets my blessing, but if Kandi’s happy, then I need to be happy for her.”
We call that progress Mama Joyce! I have a feeling that this happy couple will have her blessing in no time.
Kandi’s bridesmaids included matron of honor Tamera Wynn, maid of honor Carmon Cambrice, rapper T.I.’s wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris, Fantasia Barrino, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Rasheeda Frost, and RHOA’s Phaedra Parks and Joyce Dallas. The entire wedding party wore white. Kandi wants everybody to know that the rumor about her being offended by Fantasia’s “foulmouthed” wedding speech is untrue. She actually loved the speech that inclued the f-bomb and her adoration for Kandi by calling her “the realest b***h” and “my motherf****n’ friend.” She did not mind that Fantasia complimented her on her well toned and flattering booty.
Kandi’s rep says she was NOT horrified in the least, she said,
” Kandi laughed her big ass off at Fantasia’s speech … and the two had a blast at the wedding.”
The wedding was fun but the before wedding festivities were off the chain too. Now you know my friends can turn all the way up. Let’s say the partying included her “Real Housewives of Atlanta” castmates, family, friends…and a stripper. Bedroom KANDI!
The “RHOA” star’s reality TV friends “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle” Tiny, “RHOA” co-star Phaedra Parks, “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Rasheeda, “RHOA” co-star Porsha Williams, Ne-Yo’s ex/”Atlanta Exes” star Monyetta Shaw and Tiny’s stylist/friend Shekinah were there for the pre-wedding festivities. And surprisingly, Kandi’s mother, Mama Joyce was there too.
The bridal shower came complete with her own signature “Peach Kandi” cocktails, bottled with a personalized label. She also had customized miniature take home bottles for her party guests.
Kandi surrounded herself with her childhood friends she’s known since middle school. Kandi shared her excitement about her friends being there for her big day,
“We’ve all been friends since the 6th grade! @meme0522 @camcambi & @reeceodum met at #RidgeviewMiddleSchool 26years ago. Wow… I’ve known them most of my life.”
Kandi and her friend Chanita Foster (who oversees her Kandi Cares Foundation) posed for a pic and Erica of Eat Heavenly Cupcake.
