Scandal Star Kerry Washington’s Secret Wedding Details Unveiled, Jamie Foxx Weighs In
At the end of June, Kerry Washington channeled her inner Olivia Pope and got married in secret. Not only did the Scandal star keep the details out of the press, but until that day, no one even knew she was dating now-husband Nnamdi Asomugha, San Francisco 49ers cornerback.
Now that the Emmy nominee is back on set filming Season 3 (and clearly back from the honeymoon), details are surfacing about the super-secret wedding in Idaho. A source tells People that “everything was held at one of Kerry’s friend’s houses” and that a few people were flown out on a private plane.
Though the bride looked stunning, she went for a simple dress that “could have been off the rack,” according to the guest. “The dress was plain white, slim-fitting … it was really regular.” The couple also wrote their own vows for the outdoor ceremony — officiated by the groom’s sister, Chisaraokwu Asomugha — which just consisted of family and close friends, making for a “simple and sweet” day.
Although Jamie Foxx, Kerry’s close friend and Django Unchained co-star wasn’t in attendance, he’s not upset. When E! News caught up with him at San Diego Comic-Con 2013, he said he would have “blurted it out” if he was invited, so he’s glad he wasn’t. He also approves of her secrecy, saying, “I think she did the right thing. She kept it quiet.”
