Jemele Hill married Ian Wallace in a beachside ceremony in California and she just dropped an EPIC video showing off her big day.
The journalist who hosts the Jemele Hill Is Unbothered podcast shared the video in Instagram on Tuesday night and by the looks of the footage, she and her guests had the time of their lives.
“It would be impossible to describe what my wedding day felt like, but here’s a taste. Special thank you to @mytouch_weddings — who also shot our dope-ass engagement video — for again dropping the mic. #FromMSUtoIDo,” she captioned the video.
Set to Soul II Soul‘s classic tune “Back To Life,” we see the bride and groom prepare for their big day at the Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California before tying the knot in front of family and friends then getting down on the dance floor with friends like Gabrielle Union.
The couple treated guests to refreshments before the ceremony began, wavering from the standard run of show at a wedding. “The pre-wedding reception served just wine, champagne and beer,” Hill told Essence. “We don’t want them to be too lit for the wedding.”
They also paid homage to their Detroit roots by hiring Detroit-based and Black-owned vendors. “Ian was very focused on having a celebration with great music and vibes. I wanted the food and the ambiance to be great,” she said.
Musiq Soulchild performed at the reception and the bride wore a custom-made Vera Wang gown fit for a queen. The high-low gown made a perfect transition from day to night and Hill managed to change her look by taking down the updo she had at the ceremony and showing off flowing locks for the reception.
