“I definitely want the Lord to be in the place,” Williams told PEOPLE ahead of her nuptials. “I want the Holy Spirit to usher us into being a husband and wife. I’m from the south, so I love being in church. I’ve never been married in a church, and Simon’s never been married in a church, so it’s going to be a new experience for both of us.”

Speaking of the reception, Porsha put on a performance herself and danced for guests while wearing a fringe dress with a matching hat by Albina Dyla.
“I thought, ‘Why not? It’s my last wedding forever,'” she explained to PEOPLE.
Porsha’s groom also got in on the wedding recap fun.
