Fantasia Gets Married to the Man ‘God Made Just for Me’ [PHOTOS]
Fantasia has found a supernatural love. The singer, who "never thought this would happen," got married to fiance Kendall Taylor in a private ceremony on Saturday (July 18).
Last week, the 31-year-old American Idol winner revealed the news that she would be getting married over the weekend when she posted a photo of herself on Instagram getting in shape for her big day. "I know @sosonya15 BOUT TO KILL me today for my Big Wedding Day on SATURDAY OMG!!! I NEVER THOUGHT THIS WOULD HAPPEN FOR ME... Im going to stay Tight and Right for him.. Mr. Taylor.. You guys I'm so happy and excited..." she wrote.
The newlyweds invited close friends and family to the wedding, which was held aboard a yacht at a secret location. Her theme: red, black and white. She wore a dazzling white wedding dress as she walked down the aisle, but prior to becoming Taylor's wife, she put on a black floor-sweeping gown during pre-wedding day photos alongside her man.
The Side Effects of You creator had a five-tier black-and-white cake created by her friend Loretta, who also did the glowing makeup she wore while saying, "I do." Red roses decorated the cake as well as the tables for guests.
Many artists tend to be on the private side when it comes to the details of their wedding, but Fantasia decided to share photos of the special moments with her fans. As Taylor hugs her tight in a photo she posted on Instagram (you can take a look at her beautiful wedding dress), the songstress opened up about her excitement to spend the rest of her life with the man "God made just for me."
"Those who really know me know that I LOVE Water.. Can you see it? How Happy I am.. This Man.. God made him just for Me and me Just For Him.. This Man.. Covers and prays for me and my children EVERY morning.. This Man.. Loves My Father in Heaven and his name is God.. This Man allows me to just be a woman.. No more Hurt because King Kendall will never let that happen," she wrote.
In November of 2014, Fantasia confirmed she was engaged to Taylor when she showcased the huge diamond ring he gave to her. While she loved the ring as a sign of their union, the singer admitted a ring from the "bubble gum machine" would have been just as good.
