'Kandi's Wedding' Finale: Kandi Burruss Marries Todd Tucker In Lavish Wedding Despite Mama Joyce's Disapproval
The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi’s Wedding aired its finale Sunday night, giving fans a front row seat to Kandi Burruss’ lavish, and drama-filled, wedding to Todd Tucker.
Burruss and Tucker, who met while the two were filming RHOA, married months ago on April 4, but details of their wedding ceremony had remained a secret until the show aired Sunday night.
Tucker Signs The Prenup
After walking out of the wedding rehearsal over prenup conflicts, Tucker finally caved in and signed the agreement – on camera – to prove his love for Burruss. He told Burruss that he hopes that signing the prenup proves to her that he isn’t marrying her for her money, but while Burruss may believe him, her mother certainly does not.
Burruss’ tough mother, Mama Joyce, has gone out of her way to show her dislike for her daughter’s fiancé, and she barely managed to contain herself at the wedding. Not only did she declare that her daughter was a fool for marrying Tucker, but she also openly criticized Tucker’s 18-year-old daughter Kaela, who was a member of the wedding party, saying, “I could care less about her.” Lucikly, Burruss’ daughter Riley had her back, and insisted that her grandmother stop causing trouble.

In the end, the ceremony went off without a hitch, and Tucker and Burruss were married by the bride’s father, Pastor Titus Burruss.
Burruss and Tucker exchanged vows and then invited their daughters to join them, and each new step-parent gave their new step-daughter a ring as a symbol of their new family.
At the reception, Mamma Joyce begrudgingly gave the couple her well wishes, saying, “Todd, I hope you continue to make her happy as she is tonight.”
During the episode, Burruss wrote about her wedding on social media, telling fans, “I had so much fun at our wedding! Our reception was the best!!!!…We partied all night!”
Tucker also took to Instagram to share his feelings on his wedding and explain why he agreed to step in front of the camera to share his journey to the aisle.
“I just want to thank everyone for supporting Kandi and I. It was a very tough time getting through this wedding. I did this in hopes to show our young men it’s okay to get married, though things will be tough and you will have to put in the work,” Tucker wrote.
