WEDDING FAB: NBA Baller Tyrus Thomas Gets Hitched In GORGEOUS Wedding To Jaime Collins

You know we love a good wedding.  And Charlotte Bobcats Forward Tyrus Thomas recenty wed his long-term girlfriend Jaime Collins.  And you know we've got the pics from their fab Louisiana wedding inside....

In a fairytale wedding this past July, 25-year-old Tyrus Thomas married his fiancee' Jaime Collins at Louisiana's Old State Capitol overlooking the Mississippi River in his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 

Loves this pic!

 

Jaime wore Vera Wang's strapless "Diana" gown, and her 'something blue' were her custom beaded Christian Louboutin heels with blue crystals.

Tyrus' BFFs Garrett Temple and NBAer Glen "Big Baby" Davis were the best men who both rocked custom suits by Brown and Brown--two buttons, pique stitching and a European fit. 

 

The ceremony was held in the old House chamber.  According to the wedding planne, Audi Brown, she said,  "Jaime didn't want a lot of decor because the capital is beautiful in and of itself."    Agreed.  But a chick can never have too many flowers...

After the ceremony, the Michael Foster Second Line Band played as the couple and their 400 guests walked in a second line parade with mardi gras beads and umbrellas.  And the newlyweds rode in a Cinderella-style carriage.

Pics of the reception decor:

The reception was held in the Riverview Ballroom at the Hilton Capitol Center. Chiavari chairs had lace inspired silver mesh and sequin accent covers. And there were custom-cut mirrors by Custom Accents made for each table and topped with candles and crystals to create a beautiful ambience. The centerpieces, by Fleur du Jour, consisted of purple hydrangeas, dendobrium orchids, calla lilies, Phalaenopsis orchids and oriental lilies. 

For dinner, guests chomped on filet mignon, garlic shrimp, and crabcakes with potatoes and carrots. For dessert, brownie bites and bananas foster beignets were served.  Yum!


 

The ice sculpture above was inspired by an African symbol for perseverance, a tattoo, which Jamie has on her wrist. The symbol was used throughout the wedding on the invitation, menu and dance floor. The wedding planner said, "We wanted to incorporate the symbol as a nod to Jaime and Tyrus who have maintained their relationship all of these years."

The couple shared their first dance to "Until the End of Time" by Justin Timberlake and Beyonce.


 

Look at this hand-painted groom's cake, by Cake Goddess.  Audi described, "Inside were all of his favorite things like an iPad, sneakers and his New York hat.  He couldn't believe it was real and kept saying 'how did y'all get my luggage?'"
 

This was a fab wedding indeed. Congrats to the couple!

Now, this is one of those

Now, this is one of those times that it's hard to be "positive" about seeing black people "in love", because of a$$-backwards examples like these. It looks like it was a beautiful wedding, and his PR people deserve a raise for tastefully sharing his wedding pics in an effort to broaden his audience and bolster a positive image. The "perseverance" symbol as an ode to their having "maintained their relationship for so long" , indeed. I had no clue who this dude was until he started a relationship with a friend of mine 2 years ago. Haven't heard anything more about him until the two stopped dating- again- about 6 months ago. There's so much material for me to work with here that it would be too easy ...so I'll say no more. Anyway, good luck, kids! *sips jasmine green tea and goes back to work...*

beautiful wedding...looks

beautiful wedding...looks like there was sooo much attention to detail. I love when there is so much to look at and keep you interested during the wedding. But it hate PURPLE. Why do so many brides choose that color?!? Its soooo irritating.
lovelybones's picture

You really hate purple..lol.

You really hate purple..lol. Purple is popular because it is considered the colour of royalty as well as the colour of high spiritual enlightenment. Of course in some distant cultures it is considered a funereal colour. You may have lived in one of those cultures in a past live and maybe that's why u hate purple so much now..
