Montell Jordan Officiates, Tasha Cobbs Leonard Sings at the Wedding of Slutty Vegan’s Pinky Cole & Big Dave’s Derrick Hayes…

Wedding Dress Giveaway...

Hello World,

As a pastor’s daughter, I’ve been to many, many weddings over the years, and I still cannot get enough of them.  One of the most inspirational moments in life is when two people commit their lives to one another. No one can ever predict what will happen during the journey of life, but it’s comforting to know that whatever happens, there is someone by your side to help you live through all of your best and worst and everything-in-between moments…

I was especially encouraged by what my sorority sister and fellow Jamerican Slutty Vegan founder Pinky Cole told PEOPLE magazine about her wedding. She married the father of her children Big Dave’s Cheesesteaks CEO Derrick Hayes over the weekend here in Atlanta!

“It’s a fairytale, a Cinderella wedding,” Cole tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Just the other day, my mother saw me in my dress for the first time, and I never thought I would see myself in a wedding dress. It’s a dream come true because I’m doing something that no one in my family has ever done. To be the first to have a wedding is a big deal. I’m breaking generational patterns and creating a new one.”

As you can see above and on PEOPLE magazine’s website, Montell Jordan, an R&B legend turned  Victory World Church minister, was the officiant.  Actually, Montell and his wife Kristin are pre-marital and marriage counselors. As a surprise,  Montell performed “This Is How We Do It.” Additionally, gospel star Tasha Cobbs Leonard sang a beautiful rendition of country music star’s  Shania Twain’s hit “Still the One” as Pinky walked down the aisle.

My favorite moment was when her mother and godmother added some Caribbean spice to the wedding with a freestyle performance. For whatever reason, I’m unable to share all of the videos, so you have to go to Pinky’s IG page to see all of the fab videos!!!
