Atlanta sweethearts Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia sealed the deal this Thanksgiving with a grandiose wedding celebration in two parts and we are still in awe! It all started last Friday when Mr. and Mrs. Guobadia held a traditional Nigerian ceremony in authentic Yoruba attire. Later on, a heavenly white wedding reception took place as we marvelled at Porsha in her glorious princess gown styled by Selina Howard. The guest list seemed to go on and on for days with ATL’s most illustrious peaches in attendance including Nene Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Toya Johnson and many more!
One special guest from out of town was international stylist Swanky Jerry who oversaw Simon’s wardrobe from the outset and throughout. The style magician, originally from Nigeria, wore a black Love From Julez look, Rick Owens shoes, Anna Karin Karlsson accessories and a magenta Alexander McQueen quilted bag. Looking at his color scheme along with photos of all the guests, we think it’s safe to say the dress code for the traditional part of the wedding was infused with fuchsia hues and the evening reception was an all black affair.
Nene Leakes turned heads as she arrived at the reception dripping in black crystal chains. The $2,550 dress by Casze and Nyoni Couture was designed by her husband Nyonisela Sioh who was also at the wedding!
A third Real Housewife of Atlanta OG was in the house! Cynthia Bailey came through for her cast member and long time friend in a black lace Jovani dress.
Mielle Organics CEO Monique Rodriquez wore a sculpted Albina Dyla dress, Dolce and Gabbana shoes, a Judith Leiber bag and Swarovski jewelry for accessories. Her husband Melvin wore Balmain, and the pair were styled by Jeremy Haynes.
Toya Johnson and her hubby Robert Rushing were in attendance! Both styled by Jeremy Haynes, she wore an Albina Dyla dress, Dolce & Gabbana shoes, an Amina Muaddi bag and Deepa Gurnani jewelry whilst Rob was suited in Connaisseur Paris.
Also in attendance were Monyetta Shaw-Carter and her husband Heath Carter! While Monyetta wore yet another custom Matopeda number paired with Gucci shoes and a Louis Vuitton clutch, her husband wore bespoke Miguel Wilson.
Here’s to their happily ever after – congratulations to the newly weds! What say you?
