King Push said “I do” to longtime lady love Virginia Williams on Saturday, July 21, and it was definitely a star studded affair.
Pusha, real name Terrence LeVarr Thornton married Williams in front of around 150 of their closest friends and family including Pharrell Williams, who was his best man, and Kanye West and wife Kim Kardashian.
The couple said their “I dos” in their hometown of Virginia Beach at the historic Cavalier Hotel. Williams told Brides. com that they wanted to keep it local so their closest friends and family could attend and also highlight the beauty of Virginia Beach.
The wedding date was also special for the couple who became engaged on the same date (July 21st) two years earlier, after dating for 11 years. “I saw her from across the room at Hell Hath No Fury album release party in her hometown of Norfolk, VA. The rest was history!” the groom told Brides.
“On 7/21/16 Terrence had me believing he was in LA, but popped up at our home in Bethesda,” Virginia told us of their romantic engagement. “He told me to meet him on our rooftop terrace…when I did he was on one knee and asked me to marry him at 7:21 pm! I said yes!”
And to make the occasion even more momentous, Pusha’s brother and former Clipse group mate Gene “No Malice” Thornton, officiated the ceremony which took place on the hotel’s Grand Loggia overlooking the ocean.
The couple’s wedding planner, Victoria Holland, set up a runway style aisle, where the couple could meet in the middle to say their vows, to represent their solid partnership, and combining their two lives in the middle.
The groom, 41, wore a cream-colored Dior jacket paired with a black bow-tie and black slacks, while his bride stunned in a Marchesa feathered gown and long veil. She later changed into a second look by Reem Acra.
After saying “I do,” Pusha and Virginia danced their first dance as husband and wife to Curtis Mayfield’s “Makings of You.”
The couple wanted to make sure their guests got out on the diamond-shaped marble dance floor so they outfitted the whole party in custom Adidas slides. Surprise performances had to be in effect at such a music heavy wedding, with the groom himself, and rapper Fabulous, stepping up to the mic to take on performer duties. DJ Clark Kent kicked things off with a tribute to Virginia’s musicians, and kept the party going until 1am.
