As Porsha Williams noted when she announced her engagement to Simon Guobadia back in May 2021, for this couple, "love wins." And, now that the couple is officially married, that definitely seems to be the case.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum and Simon married on Friday, November 25 in a Nigerian traditional native law and custom ceremony. Their ceremony took place at the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta in front of 250 guests.
They will wed again on Saturday, November 26 in an American ceremony. PEOPLE first reported the news.
"My Love Now & Foreverrrr!" Porsha later shared on Instagram. She added, "Thank you everyone for all of your prayers and well wishes ! We love you for riding with us in this journey called life! The best is yet to come!!"
Simon also reflected on Friday's nuptials on Instagram, writing, "Today, we asked for God's blessings and that of our ancestors in our union in the purest Tradition form. I’m thankful I’m married to a woman that embraces my culture. Please join me in welcoming Porsha Guobadia to the Benin Kingdom. To God we give the Glory, and 'Oba ghato kpere ise' meaning, 'Long may you reign; our king, amen.'"
Porsha and Simon started their relationship in the spring of 2021 and just weeks after they began dating, they had confirmed their engagement by May. "Yes we are crazy in love. I know it’s fast but we are living life each day to its fullest. I choose happiness every morning and every night," she shared at the time. "Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy and to me, that is what matters most."
Fans later got a inside look at their romance on The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Porsha's Family Matters which also followed the couple as they worked to blend their families in a sometimes dramatic fashion. And, before making it official, the now-newlyweds often kept fans up-to-date on all aspects of their relationship, including news on their wedding plans, with sweet updates posted to Instagram. In April, Porsha confirmed that RHOA's Shamea Morton and her sister, Lauren Williams, among others, were set to be her bridesmaids at her November wedding ceremony. “Yesterday I asked a couple of my sisters to be bridesmaids!!” she captioned an April 25 Instagram post. “They said yes and we partied all day.”
This is the second marriage for Porsha (she was previously married to Kordell Stewart). She has a daughter, Pilar Jhena McKinley, from her relationship with Dennis McKinley. Simon confirmed that he has been married previously and that he has five kids from his previous relationships.
