Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir Get Married in Lavish Ceremony for ‘The Mane Event’
The couple's lavish $1.7 million wedding, which aired live on BET today (Oct. 17), was held in Miami at the Four Seasons Hotel, and marks the premiere of The Mane Event reality series. The special day was filled with friends, family and, of course, diamonds. Big names including Diddy, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Lil Yachty, Ralo, Monica, Big Sean, Jhené Aiko and many more showed up to support the bride and groom.
First to arrive was Lil Yachty, who rolled through with his mother as his date. As guests continued to show up, viewers were given a look back at Guwop and Keyshia's history as a couple. From meeting on the set of Gucci's music video seven years ago to the Atlanta rapper's stint in prison for two years, Guwop came out as a changed man, ready to make Keyshia his wife.
With family and friends making their way to the ceremony, Keyshia introduced her bridal party, which includes her best friend Erica, rapper Trina, her close friends Amina and Shekinah Anderson.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak was next up to hit the white carpet, bringing her daughter Brielle as her date. They both shared well wishes and words of wisdom for the newlyweds.
While a glimpse at the bridal party glamming up for the big day occurred, 2 Chainz came through with his wife, Kesha Ward, and gave some advice about how to have long-lasting marriage. "As long as you trust each other, that creates longevity," Chainz explained.
One of Gucci's other close friends, rapper Ralo, also hit up the carpet, where he gushed over the couple, and even deemed himself as their unofficial "son."
Following Ralo's appearance, viewers at home got another inside look into the planning that Keyshia did prior to the ceremony. The entire wedding was put together by famous wedding planner Kathy Romero and her team, who helped orchestrate each detail of the $1.7 million affair.
After a send-off from Big Sean and Jhené Aiko, the ceremony finally began. Gucci waited at the altar as Bruno Mars' "That's What I Like" played in the background. Shortly after, the bridal and groom parties made their way out to Kelly Clarkson's "A Moment Like This," walking over the encrusted diamond aisle, matching the wedding's all-white theme. Gucci sported a huge smile as he watched his groomsmen head towards him, including Kevin "Coach K" Lee, Pierre "Pee" Thomas, Zaytoven and more.
Moments later, Keyshia made her grand entrance, donning an extravagant white dress, complete with a diamond headpiece. As she made her way down the aisle to Patti LaBelle's "If Only You Knew," Guwop appeared to be stunned as he watched his wife-to-be make her way to the altar.
The couple listened to an opening sermon from the pastor, who spoke on their authentic union and dedication to one another. They then exchanged vows by repeating after the pastor, pledging their honesty, loyalty, support and care for each other for the rest of their lives. The pair then placed custom-made diamond rings on each other's fingers as they made their vows official. After, Gucci Mane and Keyshia shared their first kiss as a married couple.
The pastor finally presented Mr. and Mrs. Radric Davis for the very first time, and the two walked down the aisle, enjoying their first moments of marriage bliss.
