With their relationship starting in March of this year and getting engaged in August, Gospel singer, Israel Houghton and The Real co-host, Adrienne Bailon officially tied the knot Friday (Nov 11) at the Hotel Plaza Athénéel in Paris in an intimate ceremony in front of about 70 guests.
“I genuinely just feel so blessed and grateful. I’ve honestly never been happier in my entire life,” Bailon later told People Magazine. “I’ve never felt what I feel right now. I can’t even describe what it is, but it’s such a peace mixed with total excitement.”
The Real’s Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley were among the 70 guests in attendance. “I’m so glad we chose such an intimate group of who have shared in our journey and know our hearts and that I honestly feel comfortable crying in front of,” Bailon told People. “I didn’t want to invite people I felt I had to put on a performance for. I wanted every moment to be genuine and really special and that’s what it is going to be.”
The couple exchanged their vows around 7 p.m. local time at the lavish hotel one day after celebrating with a rehearsal dinner at hot spot Ferdi, where the newly minted Mr. and Mrs. Houghton first met approximately a decade ago. C’est romantique!
