Porsha Williams married Simon Guobadia over the weekend, and images from her wedding have been splashing across social media timelines. In addition to picturesque images of the bride and groom, we’ve also seen glamorous photos of celebrity guests garnering thousands of comments and likes.
Porsha (41) and Simon (57) had two wedding ceremonies – one was a traditional Nigerian wedding on Nov. 25. The other was a traditional white wedding that took place the next day. According to The Knot, two weddings are common in Nigerian culture. During the traditional ceremony, the couple and guests usually wear vibrant native attire and coral beads, which you can see the Guobadias wearing in their photos. The ceremony provides the opportunity for the engaged couple’s family to meet each other and approve the union.
For day two of their wedding, which consisted of the white wedding ceremony, the memo to guests appeared to be a black affair. Celebs like Kandi Burruss, Nene Leakes, Toya Johnson and many others arrived with their besties wearing their best black gowns and tuxedos. Below are some images of couples who showed up and left their mark. Cheers to celebrate old and new Black love.
