“I pretty much broke down,” Jermaine says of seeing Yade in her wedding dress. “All my masculinity dropped and I got emotional. It was breathtaking.”
’It was fantastic," Yade says of her first kiss with Jermaine. “I thought ’Oh God! We finally did it!”
It’s official! Everybody please welcome Mr. and Mrs. Stevenson.
“It was exciting because I knew that this time would be different,” Yade says of her second marriage. “The first time was a learning experience. This time I felt more comfortable and it felt right.”

“I knew it was love when it seemed like she crossed every ‘t’ and dotted every ‘i.’” Jermaine says of his new wife. “She helps you better yourself and makes you grow.”
“Sometimes you need that woman to put you on your toes and keep you there,” Jermaine says. “She tells you like it is and she doesn’t sugar coat anything.”
The couple’s blue and white wedding cake was made by Yade’s mother Erma Bush who owns her own baking company.
The dessert was topped with a photo of the happy newlyweds.
“He’s very caring,” Yade says of her new hubby, “he’s very compassionate. He’s spiritual and very grounded in general.”
“I’m looking forward to us being able to bless other people with our love,” Yade says.
