She exchanged vows with Larry Davis on Sunday afternoon, October 5 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California with 50 family and friends witnessing.
LaKisha Jones officially ended her single status when she wed financial adviser Larry Davis on Sunday afternoon, October 5 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. There were 50 family and friends attending the nuptials. Some of her fellow "American Idol" castmates were also in attendance, including Haley Scarnato, Melinda Doolittle, Gina Glocksen and Sanjaya Malakar.
The wedding had the theme of "old Hollywood black and white" and was held in the ForbesLife Penthouse Suite. Keeping with the event's theme, there were "white round candles perched on floating black stands and red rose petals dotted the floor," People reports.
LaKisha, who wore a strapless-beaded wedding gown by Alfred Angelo, Stuart Weitzman shoes adorned with the couple's initials in Swarovski crystals, and Neil Lane jewels, made her way down the aisle to "Endless Love" with friends and family watching and clapping.
Serving as flower girl was LaKisha's 5-year-old daughter Brionne. The little girl also served as her singer mother's junior bridesmaid and cried as she walked down the aisle throwing petals from a black and white basket.
LaKisha and Larry met through a mutual friend in Houston, Texas, where she lives. He proposed to her in June 2008, giving her a Louis Vuitton purse that belonged to his late mother. "Inside was a card that said, 'Happy today, happy together, happy forever ... '" the songbird who's a handbag fanatic previously said. "I was crying - I had [fake] eyelashes on, and they were coming off. It was crazy."
LaKisha and Larry, according to reports, are planning to honeymoon in Barbados.
