After a year-long engagement, The Real TV co-host Jeannie Mai and Grammy-nominated recording artist, Jeezy tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in their Atlanta home on March 27th according to Vogue.
Originally, the couple wanted to get married at Lake Como or in the South of France. Jeannie Mai shared with Vogue, “We were really looking forward to having all of our friends and family there to celebrate. But we had to change all of our wedding plans due to COVID. After Jeezy’s mother unexpectedly passed, we quickly learned that life is too short. And at the end of the day, Jeezy and I really just wanted to become husband and wife. So we decided to turn our original wedding into a mini-mony, where we exchanged our vows in front of our immediate family and a few close friends.”
To ensure safety, all guests were tested for COVID-19 before being shuttled to the secret wedding location, a beautiful garden at their Atlanta home.
Jeannie was stunning in a custom nude, Galia Lahav ball gown with a 15-foot veil. Jezzy also went for custom attire, donning a champagne blush tuxedo from his favorite tailor, Teofilo Flor. According to Vogue, guests were asked to wear off-white, “a color that, to the couple, represents the peace in their union.”
Before exchanging vows, the couple participated in a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony. After they exchanged vows in a touching ceremony, Jeezy surprised Jeannie by having the singer Tyrese do a live performance of his hit song “Sweet Lady.”
During the reception, the couple danced the night away with friends and family before heading to the after-party in the couple’s lounge, where guests were gifted custom monogrammed Cozy Earth pajamas and slippers. Jeezy and Jeannie wore matching Versace silk pajamas. Jeannie shared with Vogue, “we danced the night away to our favorite hits, feeling cozier than ever.”
Congratulations to this beautiful couple.
