Comedian Mike Epps said “I do” to producer Kyra Robinson June 23 in Newport Beach, California. The couple exchanged vows against an ocean backdrop in an intimate ceremony with 200 of their closest family and friends in attendance. The bride and groom, who are both from the Midwest, placed great importance on having both families, who are from Indianapolis and Chicago, at their West Coast nuptials.
White cherry blossom trees and low lush flowers lined the aisle, giving the bride the perfect setting for her walk to her groom in a Pedram couture gown, complete with a 20-foot train. Epps was suited and booted in a custom Tom Ford tuxedo and Christian Louboutin shoes.
The couple share a keen love for the R&B group the Whispers, to whose music they danced their first dance. To get the party rocking like no other, the illustrious Doug E. Fresh took to the mic to get guests on their feet. To keep guests dancing the night away, Mr. Talkbox, DJ Vince Adams,and DJ Tendaji took over on the ones and twos.
Wedding guests included Snoop Dogg, T.I., Tiny and many others. The night was full of love, and an Epps wedding would undoubtedly be full of laughter. With the groom’s Netflix special “Only One Mike” launching two just days after the wedding, the new couple dove right into a full-on press run leading up to Epps’ performance at this year’s After Dark Essence Festival.
