Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Porsha Williams said “yes” to Nigerian-born businessman Simon Guobadia in not one but two ceremonies over the weekend. The couple tied the knot on Friday in a traditional ceremony of indigenous Nigerian law and custom in front of 250 guests at the Four Seasons hotel in Atlanta, according to People. The couple then had a second American wedding at a Methodist church in Atlanta in front of 350 guests on Saturday to honor Williams’ Southern roots.
Between the two ceremonies, Williams wore a total of four dresses to her weddings and three more outfits for the reception and afterparty on Saturday. “It’s going to be a real fashion extravaganza,” the ‘RHOA’ star told People. “I just couldn’t turn down a dress! If a wedding dress came my way and I loved it, I had it.”
Williams and Guobadia’s weddings not only included some gorgeous fashion moments, but the ceremonies also brought out a few stars. Guests in attendance included rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny Harris, as well as reality TV stars Jennifer Williams, Karlie Redd and Quad Webb. Additionally, a number of Real Housewives stars were in attendance for the ceremony on Saturday, including Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, Monyetta Shaw and Drew Sidora.
On Saturday, Williams shared a photo of her and her new husband wearing their wedding outfits from Friday’s ceremony, along with a thank you message to friends and family on Instagram. “Thank you all for all your prayers and best wishes! ” she wrote. “We love you for riding with us on this journey called life! The best is yet to come!”
This marks Williams’ second marriage. She was previously married to Kordell Stewart. She was also engaged to Dennis McKinley, with whom she shares a 2-year-old daughter, Pilar. Meanwhile, Guobadia has five children from previous marriages: Quentin, Nicole, Christian, Benjamin and Ximena. The couple are confident this will be their last walk down the aisle.
“It’s gonna be like, ‘My husband, my husband, my husband,'” Williams said. “I’m going to piss everyone off!” This is our last wedding, okay? We go together. That’s all. It’s a blessing to be able to find your person. It doesn’t happen often.
