- Reality star Porsha Williams, 41, married Nigerian businessman Simon Guobadia, 57, in a two-part celebration.
- On Friday, the couple held a traditional Nigerian ceremony followed by the American ceremony on Saturday.
- Williams donned seven different wedding looks during the two days of “fashion extravaganza.”
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams married businessman Simon Guobadia in two ceremonies Friday and Saturday in Atlanta, Georgia.
Williams wore three looks for the traditional Nigerian ceremony on Friday and four looks for the American ceremony on Saturday. She shared the exclusive photos taken by photographer Stanley Babb with People.
“It’s going to be a real fashion show,” Williams told People. “I just couldn’t turn down any dress! If a wedding dress came my way and I loved it, I’d get it.”
On Friday, the royal housewife wore a red velvet gown with feather details for the traditional Nigerian ceremony. The dress was designed by Lakimmy, according to People. The ensemble was customary for an Edo bride, as Guobadia is from Benin City in Edo State in Nigeria.
She also wore a headdress called an okuku that featured coral beads from Benin.
According to People, Williams later changed into a royal blue gown and a gold gown, both designed by Tabik.
Williams also told People that guests attending Friday’s ceremony were required to wear purple and teal traditional Nigerian wedding clothing. In keeping with Nigerian tradition, Williams and Guobadia provided the cultural fabric to make the outfits for their family members, according to the outlet.
“It was a great undertaking,” Williams told People. “I personally picked the fabrics they’re going to wear, including the head wrap, the gel. I picked all the colors, everything. I should be a stylist after this!”
Guests included cast members from other “Housewives” franchises and Williams’ former co-stars: Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Monyetta Shaw, Kandi Burruss, Drew Sidora and Cynthia Bailey, according to People.
On Saturday, the celebration continued when Williams and Guobadia tied the knot during an American ceremony. People reported that she walked down the aisle in a white lace Frida dress at a Methodist church in Atlanta.
After the church ceremony, Williams changed into a sparkly cream Albina Dyla gown for the reception, according to People. The bride posed with the sparkly details of her dress and her off-the-shoulder drop. The jeweled gown was topped with a shimmering crown and veil.
Williams told People her wedding cake was so tall she needed a “sword” to cut it, and admitted she went above and beyond for the celebration. “If extra was a girlfriend, it would be me,” she told People. “I promise you, I didn’t know I was that extra.”
According to People, Williams changed twice during the reception. Once before the bouquet toss and once before the after party.
“I thought, ‘Why not? It’s my last wedding forever,'” she told the outlet.
