Celebrity Wedding: Monifah and Terez
Music was another one of the most important elements. Mahi performed during the ceremony, as did Rahsaan Patterson. Other close friends performed at the reception, including Keke Wyatt and Syleena Johnson. DJ Spark, also a friend of the couple, presided over the reception festivities. According to Brit Bertino, another special feature of the wedding was the “Fat Snack” table, which “Terez simply had to have.” The Chef curated a tasty table of sweets, including vegan-gluten free peanut butter cookies made especially for Terez. And, of course, vegan guests were included in dinner entrees selections, as well.
In lieu of a traditional guest book Terez and Monifah asked their honored guests to write down their best wishes and advice for the couple at the “Keys to Success” table, on how to keep and maintain a successful marriage throughout the years.
