Rapper Clifford "T.I." Harris and longtime girlfriend Tameka "Tiny" Cottle officially became husband and wife in a Miami courtroom on Friday, according to TMZ.
Us Magazine reports that the newlyweds went on to throw a lavish wedding ceremony on the private Star Island in Miami on Saturday night. The couple was joined by family and close friends including Jamie Foxx, El DeBarge, Usher, Nelly, Ashanti, Angela Simmons and Bow Wow. Tiny's BET co-star Antonia "Toya" Carter, singer Monica and Kandi Burruss served as bridesmaids.
The bride and groom -- which have been together since 2001 -- arrived to the ceremony in a horse drawn carriage. Tiny donned a Valentino gown while hubby T.I. looked dapper in an all-white Prada suit. According to theYBF the couple was serenaded by singers Jamie Foxx and El DeBarge. Later in the night guests were treated to fireworks that spelled out "Tiny & Tip Forever."
The celebration continued at Cameo with the 400 Club until the wee hours of the morning. Rihanna and Jermaine Dupri joined in the festivites as well.
If you think the couple is headed to their honeymoon anytime soon, think again. Miami's nuptials are only one of three ceremonies the couple plans to have to celebrate their union. Following Saturday's events, the newlyweds headed to their hometown Atlanta to throw yet another party. Afterward, the couple will jet set to the west coast to party it up in Sin City.
The ceremony took place in a private home as the couple's friend Dr. Deepak Chopra persided over the nuptials. Keys was escorted down the aisle by both her parents. It's been reported that Bono and Queen Latifah were among the guest list. The groom's son Prince Nasir Dean was also in attendance, dressed in an all black tux.
According to theYBF, the couple wed in the U.S. in a civil union before jet setting to Europe for the festivities. The couple announced their engagement and baby in May of this year. Keys and Beatz will be expecting their first child together this fall. Congratulations to both of the happy couples!
