Congratulations! Denise Vasi tied the knot with her video director boo Anthony Mandler just last weekend, but our homies at Lossip got an exclusive with Vasi even before it all went down. Peep excerpts from their interview below:
How do you envision your special day?
I envision a lot of crying, honestly. I need to talk to my makeup artist and figure out how we can handle that [Laughs]. I am such a crier. We are getting married on a villa at a winery so it’s going to be a really romantic space. We are expecting a day full of love and peace. I have been planning for a little over a year, so I have picked every chair, cup, fork and napkin. We could have made it a big ceremony, but we decided to keep it to about 150 people. It is going to be very intimate with just our close family and friends. At the end of the day, we decided this wasn’t a party, but it was about us taking vows. I’m the first girl in my family to put on a dress, so this just means a lot to us. I want the day to be a great experience for my aunts, cousins, friends – everybody.
How did you two meet?
We met through work, but I can honestly say we became friends first. I was filming a music video for Lil’ Wayne, “How To Love,” and that’s how we met. I had two incredible days working with him. They didn’t end up using the video, but I’m so grateful for that project because I got to meet the love of my life. I never in a million years expected that I was going to meet up husband by taking that project, but I did. So we are thankful!
What do you love most about Anthony?
I’m a Alpha female and he respects that. He lets me play that role and be independent, but at the same time he knows when to put me in my place so to speak. He is my best friend.
Awwwwww. How sweet. We wish them many years of happiness together.
