Well it goes without saying that Monifah and Terez tied the knot. The lovely ladies and friends of the site tied the not on February 8th, 2014 with a beautiful ceremony in Hawaii. All of the Divas were present and so were the TVOne cameras. I hope like hell Koo-Koo Wyatt was on her best behavior and did not attempt to make Monifah’s moment about her.

“It’s something I’ve never done before,” says Monifah. “It’s all new and wonderful. My life is merged and my spirit has merged with somebody else.” ~Monifah

Check out more pics from the wedding and Monifah’s interview with Essence Magazine.

ESSENCE.com: How did it feel to be a bride?
MONIFAH: I was excited. I didn’t really have too many nerves. I made up my mind that I wasn’t going to be frazzled and crazy about stuff that was insignificant. Because the bottom line is was as along as Terez was there, I was good.  That’s all I really cared about. Of course I wanted to be beautiful, but before we started planning I had already had in my mind that it’s going to be what it’s going to be and I’m not going to fret over things that were not in my control.  I just cared about my wedding dress, good food, hair and makeup. With everything else, I was fine. It could have rained…whatever, as long as I was marrying my best friend. Acceptance is key.

ESSENCE.com: What was your absolute favorite wedding moment?
MONIFAH: Seeing Terez’s face as I walked towards her. That’s all I saw. I focused on her. I didn’t want to cry, but she was crying so she almost made me cry. When she saw me, I could tell she was crying too.

ESSENCE.com: You both looked absolutely beautiful. What song did you walk down the aisle to?
MONIFAH: Rahsaan Patterson performed “Can’t We Wait A Minute?” He’s a friend of mine. My second time seeing him in concert, she was with me. When he sang this song and the words, I just started crying because I was like, “That’s me and my baby!” I was crying and she was crying. I looked over and said to her, “Babe, I think we found our wedding song!” I wish everyone would have gotten to see it, but for some reason they don’t show him on the episode. That was the best!

ESSENCE.com:  How did you decide on that fierce, non traditional gown?
MONIFAH: You know, that’s just me. I’m non-traditional anyway. I like to do me. I wasn’t walking down the aisle in a white dress. I love Black. It’s striking, it’s beautiful, and you know what? It was my day! I designed the dress myself. It was a variation of three dresses that I saw that I loved. I put them together and it worked. The English netting, with the nude under-bodice, I loved. I had an amazing couturier and sketcher who helped me bring the vision to life. I think I’m going to frame it!

ESSENCE.com: Who was in your bridal party? Any bridesmaids?
MONIFAH: No, just our parents and us. I didn’t want all of that; it would have just been too much. It was very last minute for a wedding. We planned it in a couple of months, and really more like a month and a half. I’m too old for that! (Ha!)

    TEREZ IS WEARING A BLACK GUCCI JUMPSUIT AND MONIFAH DESIGNED AND MURDERED US WITH THIS STUNNING DRESS. THIS COUPLE IS THE HOTTEST ON TV RIGHT NOW. BOTH GIVING FACE, SKIN, BODY AND LOVE. YALL CANT TAKE IT EITHER. ESPECIALLY MEN. THEY ARE BOTH WELL SPOKEN, SMART TALENTED AND EDUCATED WOMEN. MY HATS OFF THO THEM BOTH FOR BEING SO BRAVE IN A WORLD FULL OF IGNORANT ASSES. THE WEDDING WAS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL AND MONIFAH LOOKS AND SOUNDS BETTER THAN EVER. CONGRATS TO THE LOVELY COUPLE.

    THEY ARE BOTH BEAUTIFUL WOMEN AND THE WEDDING EPISODE WAS ONE OF THE BEST ON TELEVISION. NOT ONLY DID THEY MAKE TV HISTORY BUT THEY SLAYED EVERY BLACK PUBLICATION WHILE DOING IT. THEY EMBODIED THE WORD LOVE AND THEIR EXPRESSIONS WERE SO REAL AND HUMBLE. IT WAS THE BEST WEDDING I’VE SEEN SO FAR ..PERIOD ON TV. THE NEW SONG IS REALLY GOOD, ITS ON REPEAT IN MY CAR !

    TEREZ IIS STRIKING AND CAN SERVE IT FEM OR BUTCH THAT IS WHAT MAKE MOST HATERS MAD. HER FACE IS VERY STRIKING AND SHE COULD EASY BE A MODEL. I LOVE MONIFAH’S DRESS, SHE WAS ELEGANT AND SEXY. HER MAKEUP WAS FLAWLESS AND YOUTHFUL. ANYBODY HATING ON THIS WEDDING IS REALLY JUST JEALOUS AND MISERABLE .

    I LOVE THE FACT THAT KEKE SHOWED UP AND SANG FOR THEM. SHE LOOKED GENUINELY SUPPORTIVE TOO, BOTH HER AND HER HUSBAND WHO LOOKED LIKE HE WAS GOING TO CRY. AFTER ALL THAT CHRISTIAN BULLSHIT THIS WAS GREAT TO WITNESS THAT EVEN THEY CAME TOGETHER FOR THE COUPLE IN LOVE AND RESPECT. I HEARD RAHSAAN PATTERSON AND SYLEENA SANG TOO I WISH THEY SHOWED IT.

    MY HUSBAND AND I THINK MONIFAH & TEREZ ARE VERY SPECIAL PAIR TO WATCH ON TV AND WE ENJOY SEEING THEM INTERACT TOGETHER. IM GLAD SHE MOTIVATED MONIFAH BACK FORM WHATEVER SHE WAS GOING THRU. I WAS A BIG FAN IN THE 90’S AND IM GLAD SHES BACK!

    Newsflash: (For the religious idiots) You´re only supposed to wear white if you´re a virgin. Ya mom´s probably wore white and she was probably pregnant with you at the altar. :-/

    Please stop letting Rico design your dresses women of Atlanta.

    • Pattikake June 20, 2014 at 5:31 pm - Reply

      I love Rico; however, this is not the dress that he was designing on the episode when they went to see him. So, I’m wondering if he did this dress? Why you want them to stop? Do they look redundant? I love this dress, but I kinda, sorta thought that I had seen it somewhere before, but she said that she designed, so I guess I’m wrong.

      • DARRYL D DOUGLASS July 2, 2014 at 6:34 pm - Reply

        HELL NO. YALL NEED TO PAY ATTENTION THIS DRESS MONIFAH DESIGNED HERSELF AND HAD A LADY IN ATL SEW IT BASED ON HER CONCEPT. NO RICO DID NOT DO THIS. HE COULD NEVER BE THIS CREATIVE.

    • Shereads June 19, 2014 at 9:32 am - Reply

      Too bad your brain didn’t go natural to prevent your mouth from saying tacky things!

    • Pattikake June 20, 2014 at 5:39 pm - Reply

      You are welcome to talk negatively about the blushing bride, and it don’t even sound like you are a jealous ass hater. If going natural makes you FEEL more beautiful, then I’m glad that you took it back to nature and stop combing your hair, sound like anybody else that is in the news today for natural uncombed hair? Also, looking tacky is a matter of opinion, because I’m sure that if you were so damn proud of your NATURAL look, we would see a profile pick, but I know, you are being invisible for the sake of social media, and you know that you would be TRENDING for making such an uneducated statement. Bye Felicia!
