NeNe Leakes is officially Mrs. Leakes once again! She and her former (and now current) husband Gregg Leakes tied the knot on June 22 with Bravo cameras in tow, filming for her wedding special, I Dream Of NeNe: The Wedding. While fans will have to wait until the fall to see the lavish affair for themselves, a guest of the event is talking to us about what went down.

“Porsha, Kim, Kandi, Phaedra and Cynthia were in attendance,” a source tell Starcasm exclusively. “Kim looked big.” (Despite photos of her looking to be about 5 months along, neither Kim nor her husband Kroy has confirmed that she is in fact pregnant.)

Reality TV diva NeNe Leakes married her ex-husband Gregg Leakes in a lavish Atlanta ceremony. The star of Real Housewives of Atlanta tied the knot at the Intercontinental Hotel surrounded by many of her fellow Bravo cast members including Gretchen Rossi, Marysol Patton, Patti Stanger, Kandi Buruss and Kim Zolciak.

Cynthia Bailey, Marlo Hampton, Marshella Hampton, Laura Govan, Jennifer Williams, Lexis Mason, Diana Gowins, Pat Sumpter, and Dawn Robinson (EnVogue) all served as bridesmaids. According to our source, the bridesmaids wore “elegant and chic” dresses created by Miami based designer Gabriella Arango.

Along with The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast (sans Kenya Moore), several other Bravolebrities were in attendance. Included in the mix were The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Gretchen Rossi (who tweeted the photo at the top of the page from their post-wedding brunch), The Real Housewives of Miami‘s Marysol Patton, Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger, and Jill Zarin, formerly of The Real Housewives of New York.

NeNe’s granddaughter Bri’asia was also included in the ceremony. “The granddaughter was carried down the aisle — she’s gorgeous!” our source reveals.

During the reception, guests ate from a towering white cake and watched as American Idol alum Fantasia Barrino performed, a surprise arranged by Gregg according to Straight From the A. The blog reports that Fantasia was the only surprise up Gregg’s sleeve:

Greg cleared the dance floor and he got everyone snapping fingers. His groomsmen each read a card to Nene about Greg’s feelings for her. They each present their statements one by one and then get down on one knee in front of the new bride.

Greg then presented his lady love with a huge sparkling portrait of herself, which is made out of some type of crystal. And then… as if on cue, he says “we started from the bottom now we here’ and the DJ then plays Drake’s hit song of the same name.

In true Real Housewives form, NeNe didn’t stop at just one amazing dress — she had three. “Everything was decorated in white,” our source says. “NeNe changed dresses three times. All dresses were white.”

Following the ceremony, Patti Stanger tweeted, “Greg made me cry and I had no tissues. Ruined my make up. Sat next to @Kimzolciak n @biermann71 ken n Barbie win best couple,” and also told her fans, “The bride was over the top glam hollywood gorgeous.”

Jill Zarin tweeted that it was a “magical night.”

NeNe and Gregg rang in 2013 with a New Year’s Eve proposal following a romantic dinner. Gregg wined and dined NeNe before taking her back to the beach house which he had decked out with rose petals, candles, wine, and a heart made out of Hershey Kisses on their bed. Who could say no to that?

After divorcing in 2011 after 15 years of marriage, NeNe and Gregg reportedly began seeing each other again in early 2012. Neither party confirmed the relationship until November.

      Very over the top 2nd wedding to each other, sponsored and paid for by Bravo to up the show’s ratings. Disgusting gift requests too. I no longer watch ROHA, but do watch Kim & Kroy they are so real and not fake. I also like Phaedra and Kandi. Cynthia and Peter are all fake acting for the cameras.

      • Lisa Tate

        Just like Kim & Kroy’s wedding which was probably paid for by Bravo as well for the ratings for their show as well I think it was called: Don’t be tardy for the wedding or something like that. And to be honest no one is “REAL” when it comes to reality t.v. Kim included. Just stating an opinion..

    • Jenn

      Publicity stunt. obviously. Ridiculous that this kind of money is spent on a couple’s SECOND wedding. They’ll be divorced soon. Bri’Asia is possibly the trashiest name ever.

      • Lisa Tate

        The baby and her name, regardless if you like the name or not, shouldn’t be mentioned negatively. It’s not the child’s fault because of the name they gave her. I just think kids are off limits.

        • Jenn

          A trashy name is a trashy name regardless of who it is on. Sorry, no fake-ness here.

          • Lisa Tate

            No fake-ness here either. I’ll put it to you this way their child their decision. Who are we to criticize their decision?

    • Bethanie Francois

      Cynthia I hope you didn’t out do the bride, because you look amazing. Of course, Phaedra is looking very country as usually SMDH.

      • Joy Muhammad

        Phaedra had a baby what – a month ago. She looks great to me.

    • Farticia Adams

      she requested the pricey gifts for this wedding because she now has wealthy friends. When she had her first wedding I assume her friends were ATL strippers

    • Lean

      Who knew Gregg had so many kids? I counted six and that doesn’t include Bryson.

      • Jean Jones

        Phaedra you look beauiful,and I know you don’t worry about what anyone say about you,keep this in mind the ones that’s talking they’re watching you.I am proud of eveyone of you.God Bless you all.Nene and Gregg wedding was beauiful.
