Chance the Rapper is a married man!
The 25-year-old rapper said "I do" to his longtime girlfriend and mother of his child, Kirsten Corley, on Saturday (March 9) at the Pelican Hill resort in Newport Beach, California. The couple tied the knot in front of 150 family members and friends, including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Dave Chapelle and more, E! News reports.
"The decor was all white, with big arrangements of white roses lining the aisle and scattered white petals where the bride walked down to meet her groom," an eyewitness told the entertainment news site. "The bride, Kirsten, wore a strapless white dress and Chance wore a white tux with a black bow tie. It was a romantic ceremony and a string quartet played as they entered. In the middle of the ceremony, their little daughter Kensli ran up and Chance picked her up and held her. It was very sweet and loving to watch."
As for their A-list guest list, the insider told E! News, Kim and Kanye were the last guests to arrive, adding that they "watched the ceremony intently and cheered for the bride and groom at the end of ceremony as they kissed passionately."
"After the ceremony, Kim and Kanye hung out with Dave Chappelle on the lawn," the eyewitness continued. "They were all laughing together and having a great time. They posed for photos and Chance came over to chat. They congratulated him and gave him hugs. Kim and Kanye were offered some champagne. Kim passed but Kanye took a glass. Then they walked inside together for the reception. It looked like they were very happy to be there and to see their friend get married. They both never stopped smiling."
On Monday (March 11), Chance shared photos from his and Kirsten's big day, captioning a black-and-white photo of him and his wife: "The Bennetts." He also shared a few other photos from their ceremony and reception, including one of him beside Kanye, Dave, his dad, Ken Bennett, and gospel singer Kirk Franklin. "Me and the men who mentored me," he captioned the post.
Last week the "My Own Thing" rapper shared the story of how he first met Kirsten. Being the wordsmith that he is, Chance went into great detail on Twitter, recalling the exact moment he locked eyes with Kirsten at the young age of nine.
The couple, who share a three-year-old daughter Kensli, got engaged in front of their friends and family last summer.
