Fantasia Barrino Marries Kendall Taylor Aboard a Yacht
Fantasia Barrino has found love “for real.”
The winner of Season 3 of American Idol back in 2004 married her fiancé, Kendall Taylor, over the weekend. The 31-year-old songstress said “I do” aboard a yacht and shared photos of the reception, which was decorated in a red, black, and white color scheme. Along with a snapshot of herself and her groom on the boat deck, Fantasia, who wore a lace dress with a tiara and carried a red bouquet, wrote on Instagram, “Those who really know me know that I LOVE Water. Can you see it? How Happy I am.. This Man.. God made him just for Me and me Just For Him.. This Man.. Covers and prays for me and my children EVERY morning.. This Man.. Loves My Father in Heaven and his name is God.. This Man allows me to just be a woman.”
The mom of two, who has had a troubled personal life, added, “No more Hurt because King Kendall will never let that happen.” The beaming bride and her groom, who is the COO of a courier company in North Carolina, feasted on a four-layer wedding cake baked by her makeup artist, Loretta. It featured sparkly letters that said “K & F.” The party was planned by Stephane Herring, who Fantasia said, “Did it ALL THE WAY UP for KENDALL and Myself… It was Amazing.
Professional photos of the couple decorated the wedding venue. In them, Fantasia wore a black dress with feathers and crystals and Kendall sat in a throne-like seat. She described her look, a contrast from her wedding dress, as “more like Black Swan.” The couple — know known as “The Taylors,” she beamed — was headed off on a honeymoon, but Fantasia shared some final thoughts about her special day.
“I’m off to just kiss, Hug and play in some water with This Man,” wrote the mom of daughter, Zion, 13, and son Dallas, 3. “HE COVERS ME.. Be Happy with me you guys cause I’ve been thru SOOOOO much. Some stuff was my wrong decisions but all I ever really wanted was this.. Real Love. This Man and this smile is real… Later you guys. bye bye for a while.. God did not forget about me.”
