From the day Teyana Taylor stepped onto the scene during her MTV My Super Sweet 16 episode, she has always been here for doing things her own way.

She's managed to carve her own lane in scial media, music, motherhood and now marriage too, and fans love her for it.

So it's no suprise that details of her secret wedding day to husband Iman Shumpert were just as unique and magical as she is!

After posting two picture perfect photos from her impromptu nuptials on the 'gram earlier this weel, the unofficial spokesperson for snapback body goals told ESSENCE exclusively about the day she officially became Mrs. Shumpert.

"We got hitched, it was like ‘baby, grab your jacket [and] let’s get hitched,’" the singer spilled. "It was really like a movie."

You might have guessed that the pair swapped "I dos" in Teyana's hometown of Harlem, but she tells us that their special day took place somewhere a little more sentimental.

"It was very small, in Cleveland," she added. "We got married where Junie was born"--which was in their apartment!

While Teyana is giving us the Fade 2 Fitness motivation to get our bodies right come 2017, she said she and Iman are definitely still lanning on throwing the big fairytale wedding of their dreams.

As for her 2016 glow up, the new mom credits all the great things that have come her way to her biggest blessing of all, her 10-month-old daughter Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. 

“That’s Junie and God. You gotta think about it, Junie came and everything got better: sold out tour was happening, they won a championship—she came to Game 7, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, everything was so perfect, 'Fade'. She’s a complete angel, she is God sent.”
