Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker took their love from Real Housewives of Atlanta to the pages of InTouch Weekly for their official wedding photos. The former Xscape member and her new hubby were surrounded by famous friends for their April 4 nuptials at Atlanta’s Le Fais Do Do facility and pulled out all the stops for their fairytale day.
Burruss turned heads in a $20,000 custom made Reco Chappele gown which included a 12 foot train of ostrich feathers. Tucker complimented her in a classic white tuxedo while the bridemaids–which included Fantasia, Tiny Harris, Rasheeda Frost and Phaedra Parks–all rocked white as well.
Designer Chappele spoke exclusively to the weekly magazine about the work that went into her one of a kind threads.
“Actually at first I was a bit mad because people in her camp did not want me to make it. Kandi explained that she was comfortable with working with me. She decided to go with me as the designer and I was honored![...]We used a power mesh nude illusion material for the foundation which came from NYC. The ostrich feathers were flown in from China and the Swarovski crystals were flown in from India. She didn’t wear a veil but her tiara was custom made from Kelvin Russell.
We worked on Kandi’s gown morning, noon and night! Sun up, till sun down! It took a little over a week and a half. The Swarovski crystals were hand woven into the dress and was full of intricate details. We also made all 7 bridesmaid dresses as well.[...]She wore a mesh Christian Louboutin Body Strass Mesh heel that was worth $1,195.”
