Jeannie Mai & Jeezy Married In Intimate Atlanta Ceremony A Year After Engagement: See Beautiful Photos
Jeannie Mai wore a gorgeous Galia Lahav wedding gown to marry Jeezy in the garden of their Atlanta home. There was even a surprise musical guest!
Jeannie Mai and Jeezy‘s love story started on The Real, and now, it just got a lot more real: they tied the knot. The 42-year-old TV host and 43-year-old recording artist married in a gorgeous ceremony at their shared home in Atlanta on March 27, 2021, Vogue reported. While they originally wanted to exchange vows either in Italy’s seaside town of Lake Como or the South of France, the backyard nuptials were just as picturesque with a “backdrop of magnolia, birch, and maple trees” against the open garden where guests gathered, the magazine reported.

“Everywhere you went, there were tall glass candles lighting your path. And, we had a live band, Trap Jazz, perform our favorite songs,” Jeannie told the outlet. And they had one other special music guest: Tyrese Gibson! The singer and Fast & Furious star’s performance of “Sweet Lady” was a surprise for Jeannie, according to Vogue. Before getting to the performance and speeches portion of the wedding, though, Jeannie walked down the aisle in a fairy-tale wedding dress made of tiered tulle ruffles designed by Galia Lahav.
“I collaborated with my stylist Lisa Cera and the Galia Lahav atelier to custom design the layers and the perfect hue. The finished product was everything I envisioned,” Jeannie told Vogue, adding that her 15-foot veil (which was sewn into her hair by her hairstylist, Kristen) was also a piece from Galia Lahav. Meanwhile, the groom ditched the usual black and white tux to instead wear a champagne blush suit put together by his go-to tailor, Teofilo Flor, and stylist Chris Shelby.
Off-white was the dress code for the guests, who had to follow certain protocols to make this a COVID-safe event. All wedding guests were given COVID-19 tests and once they turned negative, the guests “were shuttled to the surprise location–[Jeannie and Jeezy’s” home],” Jeannie said. Guests who had traveled two days before the big day were also required to provide negative COVID-19 test results.
This wedding was exactly one year in the making. Jeezy proposed to Jeannie on May 27, 2020, while the couple enjoyed a night-in at home among the first days of quarantine. The “Put On” rapper originally planned to pop the question on a trip to Vietnam. “Jay decided to bring Vietnam to Jeannie with a surprise quarantine date night in his home, filled with Vietnamese food and decor,” Jeannie’s rep told PEOPLE at the time.
