Porsha Williams, Simon Guobadia Tie The Knot In Nigerian Ceremony

It’s the first of their two planned weddings.

Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia are now a married couple.

According to PEOPLE, on Friday (November 25), the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum and Nigerian-born businessman wed during a traditional Nigerian native law and custom ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta in front of 250 guests. On Saturday, the couple will tie the knot again in an American ceremony.

"I am ridiculously excited," Williams told the outlet ahead of the nuptials. "I am just so ready. I'm not even nervous. I mean, I know I'm marrying the love of my life, and it's just going to solidify our relationship and our family bond. I'm calm and excited."

As far as Guobadia is concerned, he reveals that he’s a “little nervous” but not for a reason one may think.

"When you say you're a little nervous, and you're about to walk down the aisle, people are thinking, 'Uh-oh,'" he said. "But my nervousness comes from the family members and friends who I haven't seen in a long time coming into Atlanta!"

During the day of the Nigerian wedding, Williams reportedly changed her outfit three times. For the ceremony, she wore a red gown by designer Lakimmy customary for an Edo Bride. She also wore an Akuku, a headpiece with Benin coral beads. Later, she changed into two gowns by designer Tabik – one in royal blue and the other in gold.

Guests were also encouraged to wear traditional or formal Nigerian-inspired attire.
