Ace Hood And Shelah Marie's Wedding Was Amazing

While celebrity breakups tend to dominate the news cycle, here's a burst of happy news: Musicians Ace Hood and Shelah Marie tied the knot on Feb. 7, 2020. The "Bugatti" rapper and the wellness influencer got married at the Mondrian in South Beach, Miami, per Bossip. The couple, who met five years ago, got engaged last April, according to xoNecole. As TMZ reported at the time, Shelah Marie was totally caught off-guard by the proposal, which began with Beyoncé's "Formation" playing and ended with about 20 of their closest friends joining them to celebrate the big moment.

Now that they're officially married, the newlyweds gushed about their nuptials (and of course, the after-party) on their respective social media pages. Ace Hood, whose real name is Antoine McColister, tweeted: "Changing the narrative. Shifting generational curses. My GOD I'm so grateful," along with photos of his bride and his two children, Antoine Jr. and Sailor Blu. Hood's kids are from his previous relationship with Shanice Tyria Sarratt. There's no bad blood between these exes, since Sarratt attended the ceremony and shared a smiling pic with the bride and groom on Instagram, writing: "Started from the bottom NOW WE HERE!! #GodIS❤️." It makes the wedding even sweeter that Ace Hood's new wife, his ex, and his kids could all be together to celebrate such a major milestone as a family.

Ace Hood and Shelah Marie's ceremony was stunning

Ace Hood and Shelah Marie's wedding was absolutely beautiful. Along with pictures grinning in his burgundy tux, the 31-year-old rapper wrote on Instagram, "No half stepping. My mother raised a king, I know my grandmother proud!❤️#BlackBoyJoy." The pair also used the hashtag #AceMeetsQueen to document the big day.

On Feb. 12, 2020, Hood shared a teaser video from the ceremony on Instagram, writing in the caption: "I feel so proud, honored and still a bit emotional thinking about all the hardships we faced and overcame together. I'm so grateful." The clip provides a behind-the-scenes look at the ceremony, including a sweet father-son moment as Hood's child helps him get all dressed up. There's also a snippet of the vows. "With eyes wide shut, I see you," the groom tells his bride. "With every thought and every touch, I see you. I promise to bring you out umbrellas and boots, so we can weather the storm. I promise to honor you in light and in darkness. I plant seeds with love so they may fruitfully harvest. I vow to hold you close, but always space to fly. With open heart and open mind, I would choose you again every time."

Shelah Marie wore a custom wedding dress

When it came to her wedding dress, Shelah Marie's expectations were exceeded. She shared photos of her stunning gown on Instagram, along with the garment's backstory and how she plans to get more than one use out of it. "I love my custom gown from @pantorabridal so much that I wore it to the club after. I have also warned Ace that I may or may not take it out from time to time to wear to Target," she said.

The dress was designed by Andrea Pitter Campbell from Pantora Bridal who, as Shelah wrote, "designed this custom gown literally in hours. She also made special care that I could twerk in it because that was my main priority for my dress. If I tried on a dress and couldn't practice my #MegTheeStallion knees in it — it was not the dress for me lol." Shelah's Instagram caption highly recommended Pantora Bridal, since they're "Black female owned and operated and they specialize in curvy brides." Speaking of dancing...

The wedding included a few special performances

Not only did the couple exchange vows and celebrate their union with their loved ones, Shelah Marie also planned a special performance for her new husband. The bride and her friends performed a dance to a version of Ace Hood's song "Hustle Hard," remixed by DJ Suede the Remix God and choreographed by Tiffany Monique. Marie shared a video of the moment, complete with an eye-catching gold sparkly ensemble, on her Instagram page.
