The First Family is spending their holidway weekend together. And they were spotted making their way to President Obama’s personal chef/longtime friend Sam Kass’ wedding ceremony in New York. Peep the presidential pics inside...
This Labor Day weekend for the Obamas is a total family affair.
President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters Sasha and Malia got dressed in all-black to attend White House chef/longtime friend Sam Kass’ nuptials to MSNBC host Alex Wagner on Saturday.
After President Obama attended three Democratic Party fundraisers on Friday, the First Family boarded Air Force One to make their way to Blue Hill at Stone Barns restaurant in Pocantico Hills, New York for the wedding ceremony.
You definitely have to be close to the President in order to get a RSVP from the leader of the free world and his family. And its apparent how close they are since the fab First Fam were all in attendance for the White House chef’s big day. According to the Daily Mail, Sam began preparing meals for the Obamas when they lived in Chicago. Then in 2009, they persuaded him to come to the White House, making him one of their longest-serving aides.
Clearly, the President and Sam have developed a close friendship over the years. So much so, the 34-year-old chef is a regular on the golf course with the Commander in Chief. And earlier this month, it was reported POTUS spent about five hours at Sam’s apartment, spending some time with the groom during his final days as a bachelor. Nice!
Tamar Braxton, Trina Braxton, Toya Wright and Demetria McKinney partied for gay pride down in Atlanta last night. See their party pics inside…
Black Gay Pride weekend went down in Atlanta last night. And a few reality TV celebs were there for the festivities.
“BFV” star Tamar Braxton and her sister Trina Braxton hit up Club Obsessions for a night of fun. Tamar was tapped to perform (at two events) and her sister came out for support. Now Tamar can stop complaining that no one supports her.
The Love & War singer chose an interesting look for the night, wearing a cut-out pink bodycon mini. Are we feeling this look? She posed it up with designer Reco Chappele before hitting the stage.
Trina was party ready with her drink as she posed it up in a printed jumpsuit.
Toya Wright came out to party with her girls and support Tamar for her performance.
Gabrielle Union was the picture perfect bride even before her wedding last night. Check out a snapshot from her dress fitting with gown creator Dennis Basso, plus more details from last night's nuptials...
The newly crowned Mrs. Wade was a vision in white even before her big day. The actress snapped a pic with her custom gown creator Dennis Basso during a fitting, and Dennis shared it with the world on her wedding day.
Gabby seemed super happy on her big day, saying yesterday before she walked down the aisle:
Happy... Got my Luther playin... There's a #BeingMaryJane marathon on #BET, my #nebraska #huskers play today... All my loved ones are in town... Today is a good day... I must say I'm feeling blessed and humbled and just freakin happy... Let's go!!! #thewadeunion
Gabby and Dwyane Wade's wedding guests were asked to arrive at Fountainbleu Hotel where they would be taken to the wedding location--castle Chateau Artisan.
Gorge. Spotted arriving at the hotel:
Gabby's "Being Mary Jane" co-star Robinne Lee.
And friend of the couple DJ Irie.
They also didn't want their guests to feel left out of the wedding, so bowties -- from Dwyane's own Wedding Collection he designed for The Tie Bar -- were sent to all the male guests before hand to wear at the ceremony. Classy!
People.com reports that the bride and groom served Gabby's Vanilla Puddin' Chardonnay as the official wine at the reception. And it was all one big 1930's "juke joint" style party for the guests. John Legend performed at the wedding ceremony to complete the romantic affair.
No word on if Dwyane newest baby attended...
Congrats again to the couple! Check out the G & D's first wedding pic HERE.
