We only have one word for Vanessa Williams' wedding to Jim Skrip: WOW!
Williams and Skrip, a businessman, married on July 4 in a lavish Egyptian-themed celebration (the two met in Egypt while Williams was on vacation) in Buffalo, New York. Williams donned two white-and-gold Carmen Marc Valvo ensembles that complemented the exotic theme, and the groom looked dapper in a white dinner jacket and black bow tie. The first part of the ceremony was held in Saint Stanislaus Church; then, the couple headed to a grand ballroom at Statler City event hall for the vow exchange and reception.
The ornate room was filled with gold tables and chairs and jewel-toned flowers. White-and-gold tents covered a few of the tables, and taper candles provided a romantic glow. Belly dancers and drummers performed traditional numbers, and Williams herself even took the stage to sing for her new husband.
The event's videographer, Shutter Dream Studio, posted a beautiful video featuring clips from the couple's special day on Vimeo shortly after the wedding. Watch the video above and marvel at the unique, opulent celebration!
