Monifah who is apart of the R&B Divas Atlanta cast has married her long time girlfriend Terez in Hawaii.. Monifah presented us with her new love back in February and I guess they decided to let it be known!
According to According to Essence.com
The romantic, evening ceremony took place at The Modern Hotel in Honolulu with a little help from their friends and family. Singer Rashan Patterson was in attendance and performed a special song while her fellow cast mates Syleenah Johnson, KeKe Wyatt, LaTavia Roberson, Angie Stone and Meelah Williams were also by her side to help celebrate.
Check out her interview about her day below:
: How did it feel to be a bride?
MONIFAH: I was excited. I didn’t really have too many nerves. I made up my mind that I wasn’t going to be frazzled and crazy about stuff that was insignificant. Because the bottom line is was as along as Terez was there, I was good. That’s all I really cared about. Of course I wanted to be beautiful, but before we started planning I had already had in my mind that it’s going to be what it’s going to be and I’m not going to fret over things that were not in my control. I just cared about my wedding dress, good food, hair and makeup. With everything else, I was fine. It could have rained…whatever, as long as I was marrying my best friend. Acceptance is key.
: What was your absolute favorite wedding moment?
MONIFAH: Seeing Terez’s face as I walked towards her. That’s all I saw. I focused on her. I didn’t want to cry, but she was crying so she almost made me cry. When she saw me, I could tell she was crying too.
: You both looked absolutely beautiful. What song did you walk down the aisle to?
MONIFAH: Rahsaan Patterson performed “Can’t We Wait A Minute?” He’s a friend of mine. My second time seeing him in concert, she was with me. When he sang this song and the words, I just started crying because I was like, “That’s me and my baby!” I was crying and she was crying. I looked over and said to her, “Babe, I think we found our wedding song!” I wish everyone would have gotten to see it, but for some reason they don’t show him on the episode. That was the best!
: How did you decide on that fierce, non traditional gown?
MONIFAH: You know, that’s just me. I’m non-traditional anyway. I like to do me. I wasn’t walking down the aisle in a white dress. I love Black. It’s striking, it’s beautiful, and you know what? It was my day! I designed the dress myself. It was a variation of three dresses that I saw that I loved. I put them together and it worked. The English netting, with the nude under-bodice, I loved. I had an amazing couturier and sketcher who helped me bring the vision to life. I think I’m going to frame it!
: Who was in your bridal party? Any bridesmaids?
MONIFAH: No, just our parents and us. I didn’t want all of that; it would have just been too much. It was very last minute for a wedding. We planned it in a couple of months, and really more like a month and a half. I’m too old for that! (Ha!)
