Fantasia Barrino marries fiancé Kendall Taylor

Fantasia Barrino took to social media to share the story of her special day as she got married to fiancé Kendall Taylor over the weekend.

“How do we thank each and everyone who made Our Day one of the most unique and memorable days we will ever share,” the American Idol winner announced along with several Instagram posts detailing the many elements of the wedding that she enjoyed. “To those who texted, called, or prayed during this week and up until today… Know that we love you and we know that if we had more capacity you would have been there, but you were still there in spirit… Now… We are The Taylor’s…. Here we come!”

She also paused to remember her late grandmother and to express her feelings about getting married.

“Grandma…This is the day you waited and prayed for just for me,” she said. “I know you’re up in heaven right now telling everyone you know and the ones you’ve met in heaven that your Grand Baby is having a Wedding.”
