With two weddings comes two cakes! After being tied up at a traditional Nigerian court and customs service on Friday, Porsha Williams and her husband Simon Guobadia secured the American wedding in Atlanta on Saturday shortly thereafter.
The cake at the American gathering flew high – and it was so big the 41-year-old alumnus of the Genuine Housewives of Atlanta expected to cut it with a sword.
She spoke to individuals ahead of the wedding and shared intricacies beyond the absurdly sweet. “For the cake at the American event, it’s so big I have to use a blade to cut it,” she said, adding with a giggle, “If it was unlikely it was a woman, it would be me.” I guarantee you I didn’t know I was such an extra.”
Each layer was highlighted in different gold examples and fragile sugar blossoms lined part of the layers. To make the “totally stunning” cake her own, two letters Gs and “Guobadia” were highlighted on the middle tier to pay tribute to the couple’s last name and connection. Though certainly more limited, the cake at their Nigerian wedding was shocking all along.
It consisted of six more modest tiers and was adorned with golden ornaments. “The cake for the Nigerian wedding will be a traditional Benin Realm cake,” Williams told People ahead of the big day. “So it’s incredible, it’s unique.” The Bravo star and Nigerian-born wealth manager, 58, drew a large audience at his American event and gathering at the St. Regis Atlanta.
The day began at a Methodist church with 350 in attendance, including individual Housewives stars Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Monyetta Shaw, Kandi Burruss, Drew Sidora and Cynthia Bailey.
Also in attendance were Jokester Rickey Smiley, Love and Hip Jump: Atlanta’s Karlie Redd, Married to Medication’s Quad Webb, Ball Spouses’ Jennifer Williams and Artist TI, and wife Little Harris. As Williams strolled down the path in a white Frida ball gown with her brother Hosea Williams III, singer Tasha Cobbs sang Leonard “For Each Mountain” with a gospel ensemble and 40-piece symphony.

“I think the ruler should be in the right place,” Williams said ahead of their pre-nuptial ceremony. “I believe that the essence of God should compel us to be a couple. I’m from the south so I love being in the chapel. I’ve never been tied up in church and Simon has never been tied up in church, so it’s going to be a different experience for both of us.”
Williams and Guobadia’s Friday celebration was coupled with praise for the couple’s shared Nigerian family. They were joined by 250 visitors at the Four Seasons Atlanta.
Declaring their commitment for May 2021 after a month of dating, Williams said she realized she needed to respect Guobadia’s way of life at her wedding.
(Guobadia grew up in Benin City, Nigeria’s Edo province.) “I’ve been dealing with the changed things of an Edo lady of the hour, with the Benin culture, with her ministries, just so I’m not green through and through .” She said. “I
I had to make sure I was as deferential as possible because I would rather not have done anything that wasn’t part of their way of life.
So I have to be very serious, and I was extraordinarily determined that every detail of their way of life would have been real. I gained a lot of useful knowledge.”
As for what she’s generally upset about living with the hitchhiker, Williams said she will refer to Guobadia as a “spouse of authority.”
“It’s going to be like, ‘My significant other, my significant other, my significant other,'” said Williams, who was recently tied up.
“I will disturb everyone! It’s our last marriage, okay? We have a place together. That’s all there is to it. It is a gift to have the opportunity to track down your person. It doesn’t happen often.”
