Denise Vasi just tied the knot to her dream man, Anthony Mandler and she’s all about gushing over her new hubby.
The two wed in a beautiful vineyard wedding in California where Jennifer Hudson was on singing duties and DJ D-Nice held down the turn tables at the reception and Lossip recently caught up with the new wifey right before the big day.
The Single Ladies star reminisced on the day she met her man and more and it appears there was a little business mixing with pleasure. She says:
“We met through work, but I can honestly say we became friends first. I was filming a music video for Lil’ Wayne, “How To Love,” and that’s how we met. I had two incredible days working with him. They didn’t end up using the video, but I’m so grateful for that project because I got to meet the love of my life. I never in a million years expected that I was going to meet up husband by taking that project, but I did. So we are thankful!”
On what she loves most about Anthony:
“I’m an Alpha female and he respects that. He lets me play that role and be independent, but at the same time he knows when to put me in my place so to speak. He is my best friend.”
As for how she envisioned her big day, Denise says:
“I envision a lot of crying, honestly. I need to talk to my makeup artist and figure out how we can handle that [Laughs]. I am such a crier. We are getting married on a villa at a winery so it’s going to be a really romantic space. We are expecting a day full of love and peace. I have been planning for a little over a year, so I have picked every chair, cup, fork and napkin. We could have made it a big ceremony, but we decided to keep it to about 150 people. It is going to be very intimate with just our close family and friends. At the end of the day, we decided this wasn’t a party, but it was about us taking vows. I’m the first girl in my family to put on a dress, so this just means a lot to us. I want the day to be a great experience for my aunts, cousins, friends – everybody.”
Judging from the flicks, it looks like everything went down without a hitch!
