Porsha Williams Had “No Idea” This Happened at Her Wedding to Simon Guobadia

It seems the RHOA newlywed saw her husband's sweet Instagram video at the same time as the rest of us.

Here comes the groom! Before The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Porsha Williams walked down the aisle of an Atlanta Methodist church on Saturday, November 26, husband-to-be Simon Guobadia made his own grand entrance.

On Monday, December 5, Simon shared an Instagram video showing him strutting to the altar, as a gospel choir sang a rendition of Soul II Soul's "Back to Life". Adding to his swagger, Simon was wearing sunglasses, which he told People were part of a "silent bet" he had with Porsha about whether or not he'd cry during the ceremony.

When he approached the front of the church, it wasn't the music that got the wedding guests on their feet, as they gave him a standing ovation.

"The Mission, should you choose to accept, is to take this woman in Holy Matrimony. My response - a resounding YES!" Simon captioned his Instagram post.

As it turns out, even Porsha didn't know about the big moment. "I had no idea this standing applause happened," she commented on her new husband's post, adding a flame, clapping hands, and raised hands emojis.

Naturally, Porsha was the headliner though. Escorted by her brother Hosea Williams III, the RHOA alum sauntered down the aisle in a white lace Frida ballgown and pearl-studded crown, as singer Tasha Cobbs Leonard performed "For Every Mountain" with the choir and a 40-piece orchestra, according to People.

One day earlier, the couple also wed in a Nigerian traditional native law and custom ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta.

"The journey has been phenomenal," Simon told People. "I couldn't have asked for a better future wife."
