“When you say you’re a little nervous, and you’re about to walk down the aisle, people are thinking, ‘Uh-oh,'” he explained. “But my nervousness comes from the family members and friends who I haven’t seen in a long time coming into Atlanta!”
The fun didn’t stop there. On Nov. 26, Williams and her hubby kept the romance flowing with a second wedding ceremony, where a number of star-studded celebs were in attendance. This time, the pair opted for a lavish white wedding ceremony.
