Couple: Sheryl Lee Ralph and Vincent James Hughes
Date of Wedding: July 30, 2005
Place: First African Methodist Episcopal Church (Los Angeles, CA)
Officiant: Rev. Kenneth Flowers
The couple met on a blind date arranged by a mutual friend.
The bride arrived at her wedding one hour late!
The bride wore a Tadashi-designed off-the-shoulder champagne-colored silk charmeuse gown, with a fitted and ruched bodice with Swarovski crystal stamps and a seven-foot mermaid train. She also wore a $16,000 diamond and pearl tiara.
The bride's father escorted her to her son who then walked his mother the rest of the way down the aisle.
The star-studded wedding party included Jenifer Lewis, Niecy Nash, Victoria Rowell, Patti LaBelle, and Loretta Devine as bridesmaids.
The wedding ceremony lasted a little more than 1 hour. Afterwards, the 350+ guests headed to the Bunker Hill City Club in downtown Los Angeles for the reception that featured a Jamaican buffet.
