Brace yourselves: We now have the official first shot of Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker from their April 4 wedding, and boy is it a stunner! The adorable Real Housewives of Atlanta couple do not disappoint in this photo, which features Kandi’s $20K custom-made Reco Chapple gown that’s fit for a queen — girlfriend even has the tiara!
It’s no surprise that Kandi and Todd would look so regal on their wedding day, as the ceremony was said to be inspired by the classic Eddie Murphy movie, Coming to America, about an African prince in Queens, NYC (no, not Kenya Moore’s “African prince”!). “The whole thing was like a fairy tale!” Kandi tells In Touch.
The couple exchanged vows at Atlanta’s Le Fais Do-Do event hall, in the presence of 300 of their most fabulous and famous friends. In a scene ripped straight from the 1988 film, Kandi made her entrance by emerging from behind a wall of ostrich-feather fans in her ostrich-feather and crystal-embellished gown, complete with 12-foot train!
While his beautiful bride surely stole the show, Todd looked pretty sharp himself. The TV producer rocked a trendy black-and-white tux with a high collar and orchid-embellished corsage to match Kandi’s orchid bouquet. And you can also see in the photo, there was plenty of gold and white accents throughout the event space.
“I didn’t know if I was going to be able to pull this all together,” Kandi reveals to the magazine, admitting that she put together the entire event in just one month. “I couldn’t wait around hoping things would get better. I just had to do it and hope for the best.”
And even the hard-headed Mama Joyce — who has had no issues with expressing her doubts in the couple’s relationship — must have been in awe of the beautiful evening, as she was supposedly “on her best behavior” throughout the ceremony and reception. “Time will tell if Todd gets my blessing, but if Kandi’s happy, then I need to be happy for her,” she said.
Other notable details about the big day: The entire wedding party wore white, with Kandi’s bunch all sporting custom-made Reco Chapple dresses like her. This included maid of honor Carmon Cambrice, matron of honor Tamera Wynn, and bridesmaids Tameka “Tiny” Harris, Fantasia Barrino, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Rasheeda Frost, RHoA’s Phaedra Parks, and Joyce Dallas.
Congratulations again, you two! Can’t wait for the Bravo spin-off!
