Now that rap’s prodigal son Nas and R&B singer Kelis have officially wed, the couple is unraveling details of the covert wedding ceremony
that took place January 8 by appearing on the one-hour ABC special “In Style Celebrity Weddings,” to air January 27 at 8 P.M. E.T.
The hip-hop lovebirds will be featured on the celebrity-filled special that highlights the year’s most intriguing Hollywood matrimonies,
including interviews with famous brides like Britney Spears and Star Jones.
Nas and Kelis tied the knot at Southern Baptist church in Atlanta following their two-year engagement. Heidi Klum, Maxwell and Ludacris
were present as witnesses, according to In Style magazine.
Kelis wore a gown designed by Matthew Williams and Nas sported Yves Saint Laurent.
Wedding planner Diann Valentine arranged a luxurious green and gold reception party at a private Italian-styled villa.
Further specifics about the wedding preparations and ceremony will be revealed on the show.
Britney Spears, Kevin Costner, Star Jones, Tori Spelling, Mira Sorvino, Scott Wolf, and Gena Lee Nolin are all expected to share their wedding tales on the show.
Charla Lawhon and Lisa Rechsteiner of In Style served as executive producers for the special, along with John Watkin and Eamon Harrington of Planet Grande Pictures.
The romance between Nas and Kelis began as serendipity; the couple met at Sean “P. Diddy” Combs’ after-party for the MTV Music Video Awards
in August 2002 and haven’t split since.
After a few months of courtship, Nas proposed to his Harlem songstress on Christmas Eve in front of his father Olu Dara and Kelis’ parents at her mother’s home.
No reports on the couple’s honeymoon plans have yet surfaced.
