Check out the details below.
A big congrats to R&B Diva Monifah on secretly jumping the broom. The lovely Diva sat down with Essence Magazine and shared their intimate wedding day details. The tow love birds got married back in February at an intimate ceremony at The Modern Hotel in Honolulu. Celebrity guests included cast mates Syleena Johnson, Meelah Williams, Angie Stone, LaTavia Roberson and KeKe Wyatt. Monifah tells Essence,
“It’s something I’ve never done before. It’s all new and wonderful. My life is merged and my spirit has merged with somebody else.”
R&B Divas Atlanta filmed the entire ceremony of Monifah and Terez’s big day. Monifah shared her excitement about the big day,
“I was excited. I didn’t really have too many nerves. I made up my mind that I wasn’t going to be frazzled and crazy about stuff that was insignificant. Because the bottom line is was as along as Terez was there, I was good. That’s all I really cared about. Of course I wanted to be beautiful, but before we started planning I had already had in my mind that it’s going to be what it’s going to be and I’m not going to fret over things that were not in my control. I just cared about my wedding dress, good food, hair and makeup. With everything else, I was fine. It could have rained…whatever, as long as I was marrying my best friend. Acceptance is key.Seeing Terez’s face as I walked towards her. That’s all I saw. I focused on her. I didn’t want to cry, but she was crying so she almost made me cry. When she saw me, I could tell she was crying too.
We planned it in a couple of months, and really more like a month and a half. I’m too old for that!”
