Adrienne Bailon married Israel Houghton in a romantic Paris wedding.

“I genuinely just feel so blessed and grateful. I’ve honestly never been happier in my entire life,” Bailon later told People. “I’ve never felt what I feel right now. I can’t even describe what it is, but it’s such a peace mixed with total excitement.”

According to reports, the pair exchanged vows at the lavish Hotel Plaza Athénéel in Paris, just one day after celebrating at Ferdi, where the newlyweds first met nearly a decade ago. “I’m so glad we chose such an intimate group of who have shared in our journey and know our hearts and that I honestly feel comfortable crying in front of,” Bailon told People of her guest list, including fellow “The Real” co-hosts Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley. “I didn’t want to invite people I felt I had to put on a performance for. I wanted every moment to be genuine and really special and that’s what it is going to be.”

I have seen and felt the essence of Gods grace through the life, the kindness and the courage of this woman. I’ve seen her attacked, lied about, wrongfully accused, mocked, laughed at, and misunderstood. But, I’ve also seen the shining example of the eagle she is that rises above the cacophony of the noise of ignorants- I’m learning from her example. She loves Jesus. She loves her family. She loves people. Even the ones that don’t love her back. I pray God give me that same grace in my life. I’ve taken a giant leap of faith in asking her to share life with me forever and to give me a shot at getting it right this time… She has graciously granted my request… She said yes. Thanks Be To God. Thank you @adriennebailon for graciously loving me.

As previously reported by the media, Houghton popped the question in August, with a massive 8-carat emerald cut diamond sparkler, embraced by a halo of French-pave set diamonds set in platinum, valued north of $750. Though the couple’s big announcement drew some backlash, that didn’t dissuade the lovebirds from pursuing their dream wedding day.

“I’ve taken a giant leap of faith in asking her to share life with me forever and to give me a shot at getting it right this time… She has graciously granted my request… She said yes,” the gospel singer wrote via Instagram. “Thanks Be To God. Thank you @adriennebailon for graciously loving me.”

Congrats to the dynamic duo. Show the newly minted Mr. and Mrs. Houghton some love in the comment section below.
