Just married!

Preacher/Hollywood producer DeVon Franklin (husband of actress Meagan Good) officiated the ceremony and Stevie Wonder serenaded Judge Faith with his classic track “You And I” as she made her way down the aisle. Other celebs included rapper MC Lyte, actress Sheryl Lee Ralph, “Grey’s Anatomy” star James Pickens Jr., and author Malcolm Gladwell.

 

 

 

 

Judge Jenkins told US Weekly she met Kenny on a blind date though her friend/music producer Aaron Lindsey. She was looking for someone to help her record some Christmas music and Aaron suggested Kenny. However, it wasn't love at first sight or anything.

“The first time we met was for lunch and we talked for two hours,” Faith told the publication. “I don’t know that there was a real spark at first but it was a genuinely interesting conversation. Kenny actually thought I wasn’t that interested because I didn’t per se flirt with him. It was lunch! I was just looking for good conversation and to enjoy my turkey club. The flirting would come later! Which it did.”

We recently enjoyed a great dinner - and amazing conversation- with our friend @devonfranklin. When I first met Kenny I told my friends his perspective on dating and marriage reminded me so much of the principles I’d heard Devon talk about. I didn’t know at the time that they’d been friends for years. For me, Kenny was exactly what I’d waited for in terms of the integrity, character, and values I’d expect my spouse to have. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Even so, we still did pre-engagement counseling, in large part, due to hearing Devon talk about how important he & Megan’s pre-engagement counseling was for them. It was during our sessions that we had a chance to dig deeper into all the things that really mattered prior to making an emotional (and soon to be legal) commitment to marriage. We learned how much our core values were aligned and how our individual past circumstances had tested our resolve and revealed our capacity to forgive and strength to continue on in love. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Love alone is not enough for a successful marriage. But its the beginning of a solid foundation - one we have laid through prayer, faith, work, wise counsel (the key being wise because not everyone be knowing) from our pastors and amazing friendships that inspire our continued growth. ⁣⁣

It didn't take long for the butterflies though.

“Kenny was different from anyone I’ve ever met from the very beginning. I’ve known his music since college so I didn’t know what to expect when meeting someone who has been such an established artist for so long,” she shared. “But he showed a graciousness and humility that endeared me to him right away. I see him consistently treat every person he encounters like they are VIPs in his world and exudes a kindness that makes me believe in the best in others.”

Faith & Kenny announced their engagement in September 2019. Five months later, they jumped the broom! During that time, the couple participated in pre-marriage counseling to make sure they were ready to make such a big commitment.

“For the most part, once the ring is on you’ve really made the decision about marriage and the counseling is almost an afterthought. For us, we wanted counseling to be at the forefront so we could decide if our core values were as aligned as we thought they were,” she explained.

What a blessed wedding and classy reception celebrating the union of Kenny Lattimore to his new bride Faith Jenkins! Stevie Wonder sang as the Bride walked down the isle! Movie Producer (and Megan Good's Husband) Minister Devon Franklin officiated! Sheryl Lee Ralph spoke a blessing as they lit the unity candle...and the most holy moment was when singers were planted through out the congregation and began singing Alpha & Omega one by one then 10 more got up in unison and came down and we had church! The celebrations continued at the reception where all couples were asked to come to the dance floor to see who had been married the longest and of course the Bride and Groom exited first! Ha! The last couple standing on the dance floor had been married 49 years! We were blessed to be seated with Grey's Anatomy's James Pickens and his wife who have been married 30 years. Flex and Shanice have been marrid 20 years...and Jerome and I are pulling up on 26 years in May! It was an experience I will never forget. Wishing Kenny & Faith and all married couples many years of loving bliss! #wedding #blessings #love #marriage

I’ll never forget the morning I cried when I first saw Faith in her wedding dress. I’ll never forget the emotion, joy and outpour of blessings showering this couple by those that are closest to them. This was a gorgeous wedding that was had amazing guests like Stevie Wonder, Malcolm Gladwell, James Pickens Jr and more, but these two were the brightest stars this past weekend and an absolute joy to work with over the last few months. I truly believe that these two were destined for each other and you can feel their connection when you walk into a room with them. The laughter, the partnership, the happiness. It’s all there and we are so grateful to have met them. To the two sweetest people in the world, congratulations @judgefaithjenkins and @kennylattimore ! You’ll always have our hearts, support and love. Remember that all is right in the world as long as #kennyhasfaith by his side. . .

Congrats to the couple!

As for Judge Faith's career glow up....

 

 

 

Judge Faith Jenkins is the new host on “Divorce Court” as Judge Lynn Toler’s successor.

Judge Lynn hopped on Twitter to pass the torch to Judge Faith after the news broke:

 

 

“There was a lot of consternation and people got cranky because people don’t like new things,” she said in a Twitter video. “But I’m saying give her a chance, because she’s really good at what she does. She’s going to be different, she’s going to be good. She is good looking, she is smart, she is capable, and I think she will take ‘Divorce Court’ to another level.”

Judge Faith can’t wait to take over “Divorce Court,” gushing to Deadline:

“My legal expertise combined with my personal life experience – including years of dating in the world of social media and technology – provides me a unique perspective that will inform my empathy and judgment for many of the issues couples raise on the show.”

FUN FACT: “Divorce Court” is the longest-running television court show, debuting in 1957.

Faith has an impressive resume, including, working as an attorney in New York for fourteen years where most of her time was spent in family court on custody, child support, child visitation, and divorce proceedings. Over the years, she has provided legal commentary for CNN, MSNBC and FOX News.

Judge Faith also hosted her own nationally syndicated show from 2014 to 2018. Now, she’s back!

Be on the look out for the new Mrs. on “Divorce Court” starting July 2020.
