“R&B Divas: Atlanta” star Monifah said “I do” to love of her life Terez in an oceanfront Hawaiian ceremony back in February. The reality star managed to keep the details of her wedding low key for four months, but now, she’s finally spilling the beans on the day she became a married woman.
“I was excited,” Monifah told Essence.com about the big day. “I didn’t really have too many nerves. I made up my mind that I wasn’t going to be frazzled and crazy about stuff that was insignificant. Because the bottom line was as along as Terez was there, I was good. That’s all I really cared about. I just cared about my wedding dress, good food, hair and makeup,” she added. “With everything else, I was fine. It could have rained…whatever, as long as I was marrying my best friend. Acceptance is key.”
The intimate ceremony took place at The Modern Hotel in Honolulu. Along with the parents of the brides, Monifah celebrated the occasion with her cast mates Syleena Johnson, Meelah Williams, Angie Stone, LaTavia Roberson and KeKe Wyatt. As far as bridesmaids or a bridal party, she joked, “I’m too old for that!”
“No, just our parents and us. I didn’t want all of that; it would have just been too much,” she shared. “It was very last minute for a wedding. We planned it in a couple of months, and really more like a month and a half.”
When asked about her favorite moment, the new bride said “seeing Terez’s face as I walked towards her.”
“That’s all I saw. I focused on her. I didn’t want to cry, but she was crying so she almost made me cry,” she revealed. “When she saw me, I could tell she was crying too.”
“It’s something I’ve never done before,” Monifah said of married life. “It’s all new and wonderful. My life is merged and my spirit has merged with somebody else.”
