Hip hop’s King of the South, T.I., and his longtime fiancée, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, tied the knot Saturday July 31 at a private mansion in Miami. After the couple exchanged vows in front of family and friends, they continued the celebration at a Miami nightclub.
The star-studded parties were raging successes, and according to our sources, T.I. even performed some unreleased tracks for his guests. The VIP guest list included Nelly, Rihanna, Jermaine Dupri, Jamie Foxx, Usher, Monica, Bow Bow, Trina and many more.
Angela Simmons and Rasheeda made appearances…
Swap out Ang for Kim Porter… check out the grounds behind them!
The couple had been silent about their long-anticipated nuptials, with rumors of the event happening in Hawaii or that they had already been married. Tiny told the reason why she kept things hush-hush in a past interview with VIBE magazine:
“We’re living, we’re happy, we’re in love. I mean, it’s no doubt in my mind that he doesn’t love every piece of me and vice versa, so we’re just doing what’s comfortable and what works for us. Tiny and T.I.: Not for the world. When we get ready to make a move, we will make it. We just can’t do it for everybody.”
The beautiful bride wore a Valentino strapless dress, while the groom donned a custom Prada suit for the holy matrimony. The gorgeous bridesmaids wore black dresses with platinum accents.

Later, Tiny changed her ensemble at least twice more, trading her traditional gown for a diaphanous silver creation that left little to the imagination. Later for the club, she wore a shorter, cocktail version of her wedding dress. Get it Tiny!
You know it’s over when you and your ex show up at a wedding with dates, as did former couple Ashanti (top pic) and Nelly.
Nelly tweeted from the reception “Yes I am twisted that’s wad happens wen a nigga spends a mill ticket 4 a wedding is bananas open bar everywere!!!!!”
Then there was the on-and-off again Pastry Shoes co-owner, Angela Simmons and rapper Bow Wow. Even Bow Wow’s mom got in on the action, tweeting live “The wedding and the reception was an experience. I can’t wait for y’all to see the wedding cake. It was so beautiful.”
Rihanna was there too, and ready to party.

This might have been the hip hop wedding of the year, but we at SoJones also wish the very best to Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz who tied the knots in Sardinia… and also Chelsea Clinton! Congratulations to the happy couples!
