Tha Dogg Pound’s Kurupt and Gail Gotti tied the knot on Saturday (August 18) during a private ceremony held in Philadelphia, PA.
The hip-hop couple exchanged vows in front of 170 of their closest family and friends at the Rittenhouse Hotel, eight months after Kurupt proposed to Gail.
“Words could never describe the love and passion that we have for each other,” said Gotti after the engagement became official in December oof 2006. “What helps make our relationship so strong is that we are best friends.”
Gotti said the wedding was “perfect.”
“It was elegant, personal, simple and fun. The day was filled with everything I ever dreamed of and more,” the female rapper said in a statement.
They have been planning the wedding since last year, and have kept the details underwraps to avoid wedding crashers such as the media, fans and anyone else not invited.
“This is just another example in a long list that differentiates them from other high profile couples,” their publicist Melissa Haje Sera said. “Everything was so upscale and elegant just like they are.”
The ceremony lasted until the early hours of the next morning, thanks to music provided by XM’s DJ Nina 9 and DJ Xclusive.
“I’m still speechless,” said Kurupt. “Gail really outdid herself with putting the entire wedding together. Everything was perfect from the beginning to the end, and I married the perfect woman, I couldn’t of asked for more.”
