Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka'oir's love story is one with twists, turns, and challenges, but each one led up to last night, when the pair tied the knot in a star- and diamond-studded affair. Fans watched as BET showed live "white carpet" interviews with the high-profile guests, clips from their upcoming 10-part engagement special, and the actual ceremony, of course. While the focus was on Gucci Mane and Keyshia, guests looked beautiful in all-white, as evidenced by posts from big names like Monica, Big Sean, Diddy, and the couple's close friend Amina Diop.
The wedding itself cost $1.7 million according People, and it's clear why: the Four Seasons Hotel Miami, where Gucci Mane and Keyshia exchanged vows, was draped in white, covered in flowers, and dripping with diamonds. The aisle itself gave the illusion that Keyshia was floating toward Gucci Mane on a walkway made of crystals.
Bridesmaids strutted down the aisle with chin-length bobs and Christopher Paunil dresses to music by artists like John Legend ("All of Me") and Kelly Clarkson ("Moment Like This"). But the bride herself walked to a more classic love song: Patti LaBelle's "If Only You Knew." And if that wasn't classic enough, Keyshia marched on beat to the music, an old-school wedding tradition that kept all eyes on her as she took her time getting down the aisle.
Keyshia wore a stunning mermaid gown with an illusion neckline and sparkling bodice that gave way to a feathered train. She played up the twinkling look with a jeweled headpiece, teardrop earrings, and a dazzling bouquet. The opulent outfit was balanced with toned-down makeup that included a nude lip from her own Ka'oir Cosmetics collection.
The most impressive part of this wedding was that planning started only 90 days ago! Although Keyshia and Gucci Mane's love story began when they met in 2010, their actual ceremony and reception was finalized in just three months. Thanks to planning by Kathy Romero, a strong vision from Keyshia, and no budget limit from Gucci Mane, they pulled it off without a hitch.
If you want to see how, tune-in to BET on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST—judging from previews, the road to their wedding was just as exciting as the big day.
