Chance the Rapper has tied the knot with his longtime lover Kristen Corley and the pictures are gorgeous!
Chancelor Bennett and Kristen Bennett said their vows March 9th and was accompanied by family and friends including Kanye West, Kirk Franklin and many more. Kristen shared a wedding picture of the two walking down the aisle captioning the photo – “Mr. and Mrs.”
Corley looks absolutely gorgeous in a strapless white wedding gown, while Chance looks dapper in a white suit jacket and black bow tie.
The two got engaged last July during a Fourth of July picnic when Chance asked Kristen to be his wife.
“Kirsten Katrina Corley, will you make me a man and be my wife?” Chance is seen asking in a video of the proposal shared on social media. The rapper then tweeted, “She said yes.”
The two share a beautiful 3-year old daughter, Kensli.
Prior to the wedding, Chance revealed the way he met his now-wife.
The rapper shared a cute childhood throwback of Kristen, explaining that the picture was taken on the day they met. Chance, who was 9 years old at the time, met his future wife at his mom’s office party, when Kristen was part of a trio lip-syncing to Destiny’s Child’s “Independent Women, Part 1.”
“Now I’m locking eyes with the prettiest girl I ever seen in my almost-decade of life on earth … I really shouldn’t even say locked eyes cause really, I was just staring at her; as she and her girls were conquering this choreography,” Chance wrote about the fateful moment.
Chance said he later refused to perform at his dad’s nudging — at that point he had already won two school-wide talent competitions for dancing — but that he knew he was “gonna marry that girl.”
“This wasn’t the time or place,” he noted. “Not just because it wasn’t my party, not because it was their moment to dance, not even cause I was nervous about dancing in front of folks. It’s cause I knew I was gonna marry that girl.”
“So I shook my head with anxiety, moved to the back of the crowd and never even introduced myself,” he continued. “16 years later it’s happening this [weekend] is the time, and the place is my wedding. I’m gonna dance with my wife because this is my destiny.”
So sweet! Congrats to the beautiful family!
