Before giving birth to her second child in September, Cardi B was busy adding “wedding officiant” to her résumé in the latest episode of her Facebook series, Cardi Tries. On National Coming Out Day, Cardi and Raven-Symoné helped a California woman named Brandi Taylor throw a surprise pop-up wedding for her girlfriend of three years, Shannon Herbert. Brandi, Cardi, and Raven got to work, picking out tableware, selecting the perfect wedding dress, and mentally preparing for the big moment. “I want to get married again!” Cardi said, explaining that she married Offset in her bedroom and still hopes she’ll be able to have a wedding of her own someday with an extravagant dress, a ring, and a delicious cake.
“I want to thank you guys for making me a part of your beautiful journey.”
During the dress fitting, Brandi revealed that she was excited for the ceremony but disappointed that her mom would not be attending. “My mom is not here today. She does not agree with my lifestyle so she’s not here at the present time,” Brandi said, prompting Cardi and Raven to open up about missing their mothers at their own weddings. After a few thoughtful words of advice, the women went their separate ways to get dressed and welcome the guests to the surprise wedding. “This is a special day for you guys, and it’s a special day for me,” Cardi said as she prepared to officiate the wedding. “And I want to thank you guys for making me a part of your beautiful journey.”
After tearing up over Brandi’s heartfelt vows, Cardi welcomed Raven as the ring bearer and announced, “I now pronounce you wife and wife,” over the sound of a cheering crowd. “After doing this today, I feel like I really have to have that sit-down [chat] with my husband,” Cardi said after the ceremony, explaining that she and Offset have discussed having another wedding but continue to put it off because of their busy schedules. “I want this feeling. I want my freaking wedding.” Luckily for Cardi, she did catch the bouquet at the end of the ceremony, so there might be even more wedding bells soon.
