Presenting his bride 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, and Vivica A. Fox — NeNe and Gregg spared no expense recommitting their love to each other during their June 22 wedding at the InterContinental hotel in the tony Buckhead section of Atlanta.
I feel amazing,” NeNe gushed to Life & Style at the lavish affair that boasted a whopping $1.8 million price tag. “Both of us want this, so it will definitely work this time. I know exactly what I’m getting myself into.”
“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 gushes of the details that included a $20,000 Pnina Tornai dress change for the reception and nine bridesmaids dressed in white Gabriella Arango gowns. “I just did it my way!”
Complete with a custom 10-tier cake filled with vanilla cream, guests were seated at tables boasting three-foot floral centerpieces and enjoyed comfort foods like homemade biscuits, mac ’n’ cheese, shrimp and grits, and fried chicken.
But it was the priceless heartfelt moments between dear friends and family that meant the most to NeNe, who was walked down the aisle by sons Brentt Leakes and Bryson Bryant. “That was so emotional for me,” she shares. “And Gregg telling me I was beautiful — that was really special. I had a lot of teary moments.”
Nene was escorted down the aisle by her sons Bryson Bryant and Brentt Leakes. Brentt shed a few tears when he gave his mother away. When Brentt started crying, fellow cast member who was one of nine bridesmaids, Cynthia Bailey also started to cry. Nene’s boss, Andrew Cohen also gave the happy couple a $700 bottle of Dom Perignon.
