Celebrity News

Chance the Rapper and his longtime fiancee Kirsten Corley formally tied the knot last weekend at a resort in Newport Beach, California, and photos from the event will give you all the feels. The Bennetts' engagement video went viral last July when the rapper proposed at a backyard barbeque, and Saturday, their love story came full circle.

Although my personal invite must've gotten lost in the mail and I was unable to attend, I have all the details on the hip-hop couple's special day. Here's what we know:

The Ceremony Was Lit

The intimate event was considerably small with only 150 guests and took place at the Pelican Resort under an ocean-view rotunda. Kirsten looked absolutely fabulous in a simple but gorgeous dress designed by Galia Lahav. E! News reported:

"The decor was all white, with big arrangements of white roses lining the aisle and scattered white petals where the bride walked down to meet her groom. The bride, Kirsten, wore a strapless white dress and Chance wore a white tux with a black bow tie. It was a romantic ceremony and a string quartet played as they entered."

But Actually, They Were Technically Already Married

Although they celebrated their union formally with a wedding last weekend, they actually brought the new year in as man and wife. The Chicago Tribune reported that the couple was actually married in a civil ceremony in Chicago on Dec 27, 2018.

Chance Knew Kirsten Would Be His Wife At 9 Years Old

The bible says that he who finds a wife finds a good thing, and Chance found his good thing at a RE/MAX office party at nine years old. He tweeted:

"In the year 2003, my mom used to work as a real estate agent at a black-owned franchise called RE/MAX Exclusive Properties. One night, she took my dad and my brother and I to one of her office parties to get better acquainted with her co-workers."

That night, it was announced that Destiny's Child would be performing. It was then that three young girls performed a choreographed rendition of "Independent Women (Pt. 1)" and Chance fell in love:

"I knew I was gonna marry that girl. And I ain't wanna jump the gun. So I shook my head with anxiety, moved to the back of the crowd and never even introduced myself. 16 years later it's happening This wknd is the time, and the place is my wedding. I'm gonna dance with my wife because this is my destiny."

It Was A Family Affair

Chance and Kirsten's friends and family were at the party and showed their love in a major way. Among the guests included Dave Chapelle, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Kirk Franklin and most importantly, their three-year-old daughter Kensli who made sure that her presence was known. An eyewitness told E! News:

"In the middle of the ceremony, their little daughter Kensli ran up and Chance picked her up and held her. It was very sweet and loving to watch."
