Usher and his older lady, Tameka Foster, finally wed.
That of Usher and Tameka Foster is the other celebrity's weekend wedding. The parents-to-be wed in a large, glitzy ceremony Saturday September 1st at a luxurious Atlanta resort.
The wedding, said to be their dream wedding, was held at the luxurious Chateau Elan Winery & Resort, a 16th-century-style French chateau set on 3,500 acres of rolling hills outside Atlanta. Among the 200 guests were Gayle King and music manager Benny Medina, who were all treated with a five-tiered white-chocolate-covered wedding cake by Napa's Perfect Endings, who did actress Eva Longoria's confection. Usher's mother Jonetta Patton was nowhere to be seen.
"I'm thrilled that this is finally happening," one guest told People. "It was a long time coming, and I can't think of any two people who deserve happiness more than they do." Meanwhile, another guest added "They are in love and they wanted this to be perfect. They had their reasons for not getting married (before), and that's their own business. Now they could get things done the way they wanted to, their family and friends can be here now."
Usher and Tameka initially planned to exchange vows in a star-studded wedding at music mogul L.A. Reid's Hamptons home on July 28th. Unfortunately, they called it off at the last minute and instead tied the knot in a low key ceremony on August 3rd in the office of Usher's Atlanta lawyer.
