If NeNe Leakes is behind it, you better believe it’s going to be very rich.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star shelled out a whopping $1.8 million on her wedding, according to Life & Style magazine.
The magazine reports that Gregg Leakes gifted NeNe with a 10-carat diamond band to go along with her 15.2-carat engagement ring in front of 400 guests — including Kim Zolciak, Fantasia Barrino (she performed!), and Vivica A. Fox. The two married on Saturday at the InterContinental hotel in Atlanta.
“I feel amazing,” NeNe told Life & Style. “Both of us want this, so it will definitely work this time. I know exactly what I’m getting myself into. It was more romantic this time than the first. Gregg and I are real adults, so it was better.”
NeNe tells the magazine that she spent two months working with event planner Tony Conway for her big day.
“I came up with the idea of having an Old Hollywood theme because I thought it would be completely fabulous and everyone would be able to have fun with it,” she said, adding that she wore a $20,000 Pnina Tornai dress change for the reception and that her nine bridesmaids were dressed in white Gabriella Arango gowns. “I just did it my way!”
The headband that NeNe wore is by Deepa Gurnani, and naturally it was customed made for her to wear on her wedding day!
Served at the reception was a custom 10-tier cake filled with vanilla cream, and comfort foods like homemade biscuits, mac ’n’ cheese, shrimp and grits, and fried chicken.
NeNe was walked down the aisle by her two sons Brentt Leakes and Bryson Bryant.
“That was so emotional for me,” she says. “And Gregg telling me I was beautiful — that was really special. I had a lot of teary moments.”
More details will be revealed in this week’s Life & Style; her spin-off show “I Dream of NeNe” airs this fall on Bravo.
