Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams got married to Simon Guobadia – twice.
Williams and Guobadia tied the knot once on Friday, November 25 and again on Saturday, November 26, according to Page Six. Where their first wedding was a custom Nigerian ceremony in Atlanta, their second marriage in Georgia was a traditional American ceremony.
The first ceremony took place at the Four Seasons Atlanta with 250 guests, and it was all about celebrating the couple’s Nigerian ancestry.
The second ceremony was at a Methodist church, where several Housewives were in attendance, including Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Drew Sidora and Monyetta Shaw. Those weren’t the only stars in attendance at the 350-guest wedding. According to People, Comedian Rickey Smiley, Married to Medicine’s Quad Webb, Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams, musician T.I. and Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’s Karlie Redd were there as well.
Donning a white lace Frida ballgown, Williams walked down the aisle to “For Every Mountain,” sung by Tasha Cobbs Leonard, who was backed by a gospel choir and a 40-piece orchestra.
“I’m from the South, so I love being in church,” Williams explained before the wedding. “I’ve never been married in a church, and Simon’s never been married in a church, so it’s going to be a new experience for both of us.”
“We call each other ‘hubby’ and ‘wifey’ all the time, but now it’s going to be official, so I think I’m going to cry,” Williams added. “Simon says he’s not going to cry, but he’s cried at home when we just talk about our relationship, so I think he’s going to cry. I think we have a silent bet.”
Despite already having their Nigerian ceremony the night before, Williams and Guobadia decided to exchange wedding bands at the altar at their second wedding.
Each of their children from previous relationships had special roles in the ceremony.
“[My daughter] Pilar is going to be a flower girl, and her dress is so cute, I could’ve copied it for a wedding gown,” Williams continued. “Then my niece, Baleigh, my sister’s daughter, is going to be another flower girl. Our daughter, Ximena, is going to be a junior bridesmaid. Our sons, Christian and Benjamin, are going to walk my grandmother down the aisle. Simon’s oldest son, Quentin, is going to walk him down the aisle.”
Williams had three outfit changes throughout the night – each with its own different wig from her brand, Go Naked.
“If extra was a bride, it’d be me,” Williams explained through a chuckle. “I promise you I did not know that I was this extra.”
