If there was any question whether Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir‘s $1.7 million Miami wedding was extravagant, look no further than what the newlyweds had to use to cut into their monstrous wedding cake.
The couple — who filmed their special day for their 10-part reality series, Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir: The Mane Event — sliced into their muti-layered cake using a sword with a blinged-out handle (naturally).
It was a massive feat considering the cake, which was over 10 feet tall, towered over 6’2” Mane and his petite wife. “Cake double my size,” Mane wrote in the caption to a photo of the dessert on Instagram.
Complete with white, delicate roses as the frosting, the cake was made up of four double-tiered layers with crystals dangling from each section so that it resembled a dramatic chandelier – perfect for the “diamonds and crystals” theme of their nuptials.
The work of art came from baker Edda Martinez and her South Florida’s custom cake company Edda’s Cake Designs, a spokesman of whom told TMZ the $75,000 confection required 3 months of planning, 3 days of baking, 8,000 handmade sugar flowers and 2,500 Swarovski crystals. Flavors included red velvet, amaretto, carrot, banana nuts, and Jamaican rum cake
As for the sword, well that was a gift from Edda’s, TMZ reported.
“Over 10 feet of beauty!,” the company wrote on Instagram. “A spectacular cake for a star studded wedding! So excited we could be a part of The Mane Event!! Congratulations @laflare1017 & @keyshiakaoir on your gorgeous wedding!”
Meanwhile, Mane (née Radric Davis) and Ka’oir seem happy as can be after their big day.
The lovebirds, who have been dating since 2010 and got engaged in November 2016 when Mane popped the question during a “Kiss Cam” moment at the Atlanta Hawks game, both shared Instagram photos of their nuptials on Tuesday — each showing off their all-white ensembles.
“Mr and Mrs Davis 10/17/17 we married,” Mane wrote in his post. The photo showed him posing in a head-to-toe white tuxedo with a diamond bowtie and matching shoes.
“Me & my husbandddddddddddddd,” Ka’oir shared in the caption to her pic — her custom Charbel Zoe Couture bedazzled beaded long-sleeve sheer wedding gown with leaf-like embroidery and feathery skirt and train looking elegant as can be. She accessorized with a crystal headpiece, blinding drop earrings and a bouquet of diamonds.
Among the celebrity guests on the big day were Sean “Diddy” Combs, Karrueche Tran, Lil Yachty, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, Big Sean, Jhene Aiko, and Don’t Be Tardy stars Kim Zolciak-Biermann and her daughter Brielle Biermann.
