Cardi B officiated a “pop-up” wedding between a same-sex couple on National Coming Out Day, while Raven-Symoné acted as the ring bearer.
In the latest episode of Cardi B’s Facebook series, “Cardi Tries,” the mother-of-two dove into the world of wedding ceremonies and nuptials. The “WAP” rapper marked National Coming Out Day by helping a California-based woman named Brandi Taylor create a surprise wedding for her fiancée, Shannon Herbert.
During the dress fitting, Cardi B, Symoné, and Taylor discussed how it felt to get married without their mothers’ involved in the process.
“My mom is not here today. She does not agree with my lifestyle, so she’s not here at the present time,” Taylor said.
“When my mom found out that I got married, and she wasn’t there and I didn’t tell her, she was really freaking pissed off,” Cardi B said. Cardi B previously revealed that she and rapper Offset got married on a whim inside her bedroom in Atlanta.
Symoné added that her “mom was mad, too, because she wasn’t there either. She was like, ‘You’re my only daughter and I missed it.'” Symoné tied the knot with Miranda Pearman-Maday last June.
Later, after the couple exchanged vows, a tearful Cardi B invited Symoné into the ceremony to deliver the rings.
Cardi B soon capped her officiating duties by pronouncing the couple “wife and wife.”
“Then, by the power vested in me by the State of California and my online course, I now pronounce you wife and wife.”
