After one week of marital bliss, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker finally got a change to get away and enjoy their honeymoon. The Tuckers flew to the Bahamas, along with a group of their Hollywood friends, to celebrate their recent nuptials and the birthday of their good pal, movie producer Will Packer.

As we reported earlier, the newlyweds were forced to postpone their wedding trip because Todd landed a new gig. “I just wanted to say thank you for all of your well wishes prayers for @todd167 & I,” the new Mrs. Tucker wrote the morning after she jumped the broom. “I know people are asking why am I on IG when I should be on my honeymoon. Well @todd167′s has to go out of town to set up a show his company is producing for a network that’s just starting production this week.”
“We’re gonna do a quick getaway next weekend,” she added. “Although I would have loved to take one of those long honeymoons & fly out the day after the wedding, anyone that watched #RHOA knows that I wanted Todd to produce his own shows & work for his self & that dream is coming true so I’m not complaining!”
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars said “I do” in front of their closest family and friends in Atlanta last weekend. The ceremony was inspired by the classic Eddie Murphy film Coming to America. Kandi, who rocked a $20,000 custom-made Reco Chapple gown, and her new hubby danced the night away to a Bell Biv DeVoe performance at their reception.
