R&B singer Ameriie has officially turned in her player card and got hitched over the weekend to manger Lenny Nicholson in the British West Indies.
Details of the Saturday (June 25) marriage have emerged online.
The beautiful bride was beaming in a Monique Lhullier gown with a cathedraltrain, baby blue Yves Saint Laurent Tribute sandals, and jewelry by Rafaello & Co., styling her hair in an edgy up-do. The groom, a former Columbia Records A&R executive, opted for a Hugo Boss tuxedo. With their family by their side, the couple exchanged vows at the luxurious Viceroy Anguilla. DJ Konflikt provided the evening's soundtrack and guests were treated to a seven-tier seafoam green cake. The newlyweds will spend their honeymoon in the resort's plush Romance Villa, which boasts its own private beach. (Rap-Up)
Confirming the marriage, Ameriee discussed the ceremony's aftermath.
"This is such an exciting time for me. This is my first marriage and I am over the moon," Ameriie said. "I look forward to a loving and enduring marriage. This day couldn't come any sooner for me. I am beyond thrilled. I will remember this day forever." (PEOPLE)
Last year, Ameriie officially became engaged to Nicholson.
R&B beauty Amerie is engaged to her manager boyfriend, Lenny Nicholson. The 1 Thing singer, 30, accepted Nicholson's proposal during a romantic trip to Paris, France last weekend, when he got down on one knee and presented her with a pink diamond ring. Rumors quickly spread online claiming the couple had eloped and exchanged vows, but her publicist has quashed the marriage reports, insisting Amerie has only just got engaged. (Starpulse)
She also changed the spelling of her name last year.
If you see Amerie's name spelled with two Is from now on, that's not a typo. The "1 Thing" singer has officially changed the spelling of her name. The Grammy-nominated artist, who now goes by Ameriie, added an "I" to her name to reflect positive energy. (Hello Beautiful)
