Congratulations are in order for Jeannie Mai and Jeezy! The couple has officially tied the knot.
Jeannie Mai, the former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant, who is also a co-host on “The Real,” married the Grammy-nominated rapper in an intimate ceremony at their Atlanta home on March 27, Vogue revealed.
The couple originally planned to have their wedding elsewhere, but changed their plans due to COVID-19 and the death of Jeezy’s mother, Denise Jenkins, in February.
“We were really looking forward to having all of our friends and family there to celebrate,” Mai told Vogue. “But we had to change all of our wedding plans due to COVID.”
“After Jeezy’s mother unexpectedly passed, we quickly learned that life is too short,” she continued. “And at the end of the day, Jeezy and I really just wanted to become husband and wife. So we decided to turn our original wedding into a mini-mony, where we exchanged our vows in front of our immediate family and a few close friends.”

The couple said they required negative COVID test results from all traveling guests at least two days prior to the wedding. Guests were also encouraged to wear off-white, which the couple said symbolizes “the peace in their union.”
The couple revealed to Vogue that Jeezy walked down the aisle in a custom champagne-blush colored suit to Kem’s “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” while Mai walked to “How Deep Is Your Love” by the Bee Gees in a stunning nude gown with a 15-foot veil.
The couple exchanged vows after a special tea ritual performed at Vietnamese weddings, led by Mai’s brother.
“In this ceremony, we honored our parents by pouring tea as a gesture to welcome Jeezy into my family, and me into his,” Mai said. “Then we paid our respects to our parents and ancestors by bowing four times, each one symbolizing a significant gift in the life that they have provided us with.”
