You can now call her pastor Atkins or what she says, “just call me clergy.”
Actress turned ordained minister, Essence Atkins most known for her role on the 90’s sitcom Smart Guy and Half & Half, opened up to HipHollywood on Thursday night about officiating Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union’s lavish wedding.
“It was magical,” she said. “My husband and I were really honored to officiate the ceremony and we had a great time. It was beautiful, it was a great day. The great thing for us as husband and wife and being on the precipice of our own five year wedding anniversary, it was a reminder. It was a reminder to my husband I about the reasons we stood up there five years ago and what we promised to each other. It was really nice.”
Atkins added, “It was affirming for them and re-affirming for us. It was lovely.”
Wade and Union tied the knot on August 30 in Miami. The couple exchanged vows during an intimate ceremony in front of their closest family and friends.
