Who says bigger isn’t better the second time around for NeNe Leakes and Gregg Leakes?
Presenting his bride with a 10-carat diamond band to go along with her 15.2-carat engagement ring in front of 400 guests — including Kim Zolciak, Fantasia Barrino, and Vivica A. Fox — NeNe and Gregg spared no expense recommitting their love to each other during their June 22 wedding at the InterContinental hotel in the tony Buckhead section of Atlanta.
“I feel amazing,” NeNe gushed to Life & Style at the lavish affair that boasted a whopping $1.8 million price tag. “Both of us want this, so it will definitely work this time. I know exactly what I’m getting myself into.”
Referring to their first attempt at marriage that ended in divorce in 2011, NeNe says she and Gregg — who are parents to 14-year-old Brentt, along with six children from previous relationships — always remained in contact. “It was more romantic this time than the first,” NeNe raves to Life & Style. “Gregg and I are real adults, so it was better.”
Can’t say we’re surprised to hear that these two made it rain something serious on their wedding day. Hit the flip to peep another pic of Gregg and NeNe just after they tied the knot and read the rest of the high-priced details.
Eager to celebrate their rekindled romance with family and friends, NeNe, who wore a $50,000 Baracci dress during the ceremony, says she spent two months carefully coordinating her nuptials with event planner Tony Conway.
“I came up with the idea of having an Old Hollywood theme because I thought it would be completely fabulous and everyone would be able to have fun with it,” she gushes of the details that included a $20,000 Pnina Tornai dress change for the reception and nine bridesmaids dressed in white Gabriella Arango gowns. “I just did it my way!”
Complete with a custom 10-tier cake filled with vanilla cream, guests were seated at tables boasting three-foot floral centerpieces and enjoyed comfort foods like homemade biscuits, mac ’n’ cheese, shrimp and grits, and fried chicken.
But it was the priceless heartfelt moments between dear friends and family that meant the most to NeNe, who was walked down the aisle by sons Brentt Leakes and Bryson Bryant. “That was so emotional for me,” she shares. “And Gregg telling me I was beautiful — that was really special. I had a lot of teary moments.”
Sounds like there will be plenty to see when this “I Dream Of NeNe” wedding special airs in the fall.
