It’s a love so strong even Mama Joyce can’t tear it apart.
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss and former show producer Todd Tucker have officially tied the knot in a purple-themed wedding in Atlanta with their guests flaunting the colors of royalty.
On Friday, April 4, the couple finally got hitched despite all the drama that has been swirling around them on the show.
In the midst of cheating allegations from Kandi’s mother and accusations by cast members that Todd is merely an “opportunist,” the wedding was drama-free.
According to Kandi, it was the wedding she had always dreamed about.
“This is one of the best days of my life,” she told InTouch Weekly. “I never imagined that I would marry my best friend. Todd’s been that to me.”
Of course, as soon as the formalities were finished, Kandi was ready to just have fun with her close friends, family and new husband.
“…To have just had the wedding of my dreams, it’s all been so beautiful,” she said. “Now it’s time to party!”
Meanwhile, her guests were dressed in gorgeous purple hues at Kandi’s request.
Co-star Porsha Williams, songstress Monica, BET reality star Toya Wright, T.I’s wife and Kandi’s best friend Tiny, co-star Phaedra Parks and more were all rocking stunning purple gowns for the occasion.
Porsha went with a fitted gown that left her back exposed for just the right hint of sexy, yet still very wedding appropriate.
She posted a picture of the sultry look on her Instagram with the caption, “Congratulations to this beautiful couple! Love you guys and I was so blessed to be there to witness such phenomenal union! Wishing you many years of love & happiness and lots of babies! #TheTuckers #celebrationoflove #letthemlove #dreamsdocometrue.”
Toya had a simple but elegant look. She went with a short, fitted purple dress that featured a high neckline. She paired the number with minimal gold accessories and a classic single-sole heel.
Monica, on the other hand, took the dramatic approach. The songstress donned a white blouse with a very full, purple skirt that billowed out around her. She also kept accessories to a minimum and rocked a fresh palette for her makeup.
Despite all the purple regalia, that’s not what has everyone abuzz.
While Kandi and show producers seemed to want to keep her wedding dress under wraps, Kandi’s best friend Tiny proved once again that she isn’t too good with keeping secrets.
Tiny posted a picture of Kandi before the wedding in an unconventional minidress that is now believed to have been her actual gown for the ceremony.
She quickly deleted the post, but screenshots are already floating around the Internet.
With a rumored-to-be wedding special also in the works, Kandi’s unusual choice for a wedding dress could have been a surprise for viewers and a stellar detail to focus on for the sake of promotions.
Now, however, the
cat dress is out of the bag.
