Check Out The First Pic Of Kandi And Todd’s Wedding and the $20,000 Gown


Whether or not you are a fan of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, it’s good to know that all the drama on the show didn’t derail Kandi and Todd’s marriage.

Slowly but surely details of Kandi and Todd’s walk down the aisle are coming together, thanks to an exclusive In Touch Weekly just published. The tabloid is the first mag to release pics of Kandi and Todd’s wedding and we’re starting to see the Coming to America theme shine through.

As for Kandi and Todd’s ceremony, which happened on Friday, Apr. 4, Real Housewives of Atlanta costar Phaedra Parks acted as a bridesmaid, as did Kandi’s aunt, best friend Carmen and Fantasia Barrino.

“Kandi’s dress was made out of Ostrich Feathers and the entire event space was covered in white lace,” the source says. “Not one part of the space was without lace…There were white lions as you walked in. Porsha [Williams], Shareè Whitfield, Tamar Braxton,Sherri Shepherd and Monica were some of the guests. Guests dined on shrimp, steak, stuffed crab, cupcakes and the couple had an open bar.”

And for those of you who don’t watch Real Housewives of Atlanta, the drama between mama Joyce and Todd is nothing new. The duo have long battled each other over his relationship with Kandi and Joyce has been vocal for a long time about disapproving of their wedding plans.

According to In Touch, that Reco Chapple gown you’re looking at cost a cool $20,000 and featured a 12-foot train. No wonder Kandi  said “The whole thing was like a fairy tale!” The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars’ nuptials took place at Atlanta’s Le Fais Do-Do venue in front of a reported 300 guests with walls covered in ostrich-feather fans, which is an amazing feet for just a few weeks of planning. The former Xscape star admitted:

“I didn’t know if I was going to be able to pull this all together. I couldn’t wait around hoping things would get better. I just had to do it and hope for the best.”

Thankfully, that’s exactly what she got — on all fronts. It’s no secret Kandi’s mother, mama Joyce isn’t exactly thrilled with her daughter’s choice of a life partner, but she told In Touch:

“Time will tell if Todd gets my blessing, but if Kandi’s happy, then I need to be happy for her.”

It’s about time she got that through her head. Let’s just hope footage from Kandi’s upcoming wedding spin-off doesn’t show her acting a fool. What do you think of Kandi’s dress?
