Congratulations are in order for Jeannie Mai and Jeezy!
After announcing their engagement in April 2020, they’re now officially married. The happy couple were married in an intimate ceremony at their home in Atlanta on March 27, 2021. Photos from their beautiful wedding were featured Thursday in Vogue.
Mai wore a cream dress by Galia Lahav. She told Vogue conceptualizing the look was one of her favorite parts of the wedding planning process. “I collaborated with my stylist Lisa Cera and the Galia Lahav atelier to custom design the layers and the perfect hue,” she said. “The finished product was everything I envisioned.”
She wore a handmade headpiece with a 15-foot Galia Lahav veil. “My hairstylist, Kristen, impressively sewed this into my hair,” she said. Jewelry was kept minimal, and her friend Rosalina Lydster created the diamond and morganite drop earrings that tied everything together.
Jeezy also wanted a custom design for the wedding day, so he called upon his favorite tailor, Teofilo Flor, and stylist Chris Shelby to create a champagne blush suit that projected strength and sophistication but with a bit of playfulness too.
Meanwhile, guests were asked to wear off-white, a color that, to the couple, represents the peace in their union.
The couple also shared the details about their special day which they dubbed their “mini-mony” due to last minute changes. “We were really looking forward to having all of our friends and family there to celebrate,” Mai, 42, said. “But we had to change all of our wedding plans due to COVID. After Jeezy’s mother unexpectedly passed, we quickly learned that life is too short.”
The service took place in the open garden at the couple’s home against a backdrop of magnolia, birch, and maple trees—a setting that was both intimate and familial.
The couple met when Jeezy was a guest on Jeannie’s daytime talk show The Real.
“Years later, he asked me out on a date,” Jeannie remembers. “We shared a romantic sushi dinner in Los Angeles and salsa danced the night away. Later that evening, he asked if I could picture spending the rest of my life with him. And crazy enough, I could.”
Jeezy popped the question to Mai in late March 2020. The “Put On” artist initially intended to pop the question during a Vietnam getaway, but the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in him bringing Vietnam to the Dancing with the Stars alum with a romantic quarantine date night.
