American Idol season three winner Fantasia Barrino married her fiance Kendall Taylor aboard a yacht Sunday (July 19) and took to Instagram to document the festivities.
The 31-year-old singer shared a photo of her and her new husband from the big day, referring to their relationship as “Real Love.” Other photos included the black, white and red reception decor, what she calls “my colors” in another post.
Barrino announced her engagement to Taylor via the social media site in November of last year. Although she never revealed when her wedding would be, news of a possible ceremony broke July 13 when Fantasia posted a picture of her slim figure with the caption, “I know @sosonya15 BOUT TO KILL me today for my Big Wedding Day on SATURDAY OMG!!! I NEVER THOUGHT THIS WOULD HAPPEN FOR ME… Im going to stay Tight and Right for him.. Mr. Taylor.. You guys I’m so happy and excited…”
Prior to posting pictures from the day of the wedding, Barrino took a moment to thank everyone who was involved, concluding the thank you with “Now… We are The Taylor’s…. Here we come!” Amidst the wedding excitement, the singer hasn’t said much about new music, but she told Billboard in June 2014 that she was “going back in the studio soon.” Her last release was 2013’s Side Effects of You, which reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
