“I do” times two.
The couple’s second nuptials, also held in Georgia, were consistent with a traditional American ceremony, while Friday’s wedding followed Nigerian native law & customs due to the groom’s heritage.
“I definitely want the Lord to be in the place. I want the Holy Spirit to usher us into being a husb& & wife,” she told the outlet ahead of the ceremony.
“I’m from the south, so I love being in church. I’ve never been married in a church, & Simon’s never been married in a church, so it’s going to be a new experience for both of us.”
The outlet also reports that 350 guests were in attendance to watch WIlliams & Guobadia, 57, say “I do.”
Fellow “Housewives” at the nuptials included Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Monyetta Shaw, K&i Burruss, Drew Sidora & Cynthia Bailey.
“We call each other ‘hubby’ & ‘wifey’ all the time, but now it’s going to be official, so I think I’m going to Weep,” Williams gushed to People. “Simon says he’s not going to Weep, but he’s cried at home when we just talk about our relationship, so I think he’s going to Weep. I think we have a silent bet.”
Williams previously revealed that having multiple celebrations for the couple’s Huge day was always part of the plan. In May 2021, the reality star shared on her radio show, “Dish Nation,” that they wanted three weddings.
“He’s African, so we’re going to have a native law & custom ceremony, & a regular wedding, & then we’re going to have another wedding at one of the houses that is out of the country,” she explained.
Williams & Guobadia’s relationship had a controversial start as the businessman was previously married to the Bravo star’s “RHOA” co-star Falynn Pina when they first met.
The now-married couple got engaged in May 2021, just a few weeks after Pina, 32, announced she & Simon had called it quits.
However, Williams always stressed that she did not Advance in between the former couple’s marriage, noting on social media at the time, “Falynn & I are not friends, & Simon’s divorce has been settled. Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody’s lives.”
The “Pursuit of Porsha” author jokingly told People on Friday, “It’s our last marriage, OK? We belong together. That is it. It’s a blessing to be able to find your person. It doesn’t happen often.”
Williams was previously married to Kordell Stewart from 2011 to 2013, & their relationship was featured on Season 1 of “RHOA.” She was also previously engaged to Dennis McKinley, with whom she shares 2-year-old daughter Pilar.
Guobadia has five kids — Quentin, Nicole, Christian, Benjamin & Ximena — from previous marriages.
