Here Comes The Bride:

What a beautiful wedding! On Saturday, Italia Smith, the oldest daughter of LL Cool J and his wife Simone Smith married Lamar Cardinez  in a lavish, star-studded wedding at the Sparkling Pointe Vineyards and Winery in Long Island, New York. The gorgeous twinkle lights spanning the entire setting, created an angelic atmosphere with white astro turf, white chairs, and white flowers along with a delicious unfrosted wedding cake.

So in love, Italia Smith married her longtime bae, Lamar Cardinez, in a lavish wedding.

Dressed in a Marie Antoinette inspired dress, the entire Smith family was there along with celebrities such as Mary J. Blige, Niecy Nash, Cookie Johnson, Vanessa Bell Calloway, and Monica. Celebrity couple, Bill Bellamy with his wife Kristen, attended the wedding as well. The day before Italia’s wedding, they celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary. Kristen Bellamy took to Instagram to congratulate the new couple.

Described as the wedding of the year, with a room filled with 300 guests plus, singer Monica Brown sang her heart out as Italia walked down the aisle. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place and even the groom shed a few tears at the sight of his beautiful wife. Giving the newlyweds wedding advice, Monica urged them to “cross oceans for one another” as she sang her classic love ballad, For You I Will.

In a beautiful strapless lace ball gown for the wedding, Italia changed her dress for the reception and slipped into something more comfortable by rocking a pair of bedazzled sneaker wedges as she prepared to dance the night away with her new husband. Not only did Italia rock a pair of blinged out wedges, but she rocked a shiny new grill along with the entire Smith family who posed for pictures. The mother-of-the-bride shared some special moments from her daughter’s New York wedding.

Italia and her new husband, Lamar Cardinez have been preparing for their big day since their engagement in November 2015.  Since then the bride has been showered with nothing but love from her mother, sisters and famous friends with bridal and bachelorette parties.  Congrats to the new couple!
