Marriage Matters Monday – Jada and Chris Paul EXCLUSIVE

Mr. & Mrs. Chris Paul

I’ve been working on this Jada and Chris Paul First Wedding Anniversary story for weeks. The duo officially celebrated one year of wedded bliss on September 10th and because I covered their star-studded nuptials here, for ESSENCE and ESSENCE.com, I was determined to get their feedback…some feedback…okay any feedback on their first 365 days of marriage. It wasn’t easy; these two have a lot going on personally and professionally. (Have you peeped Chris on the cover of the latest issue of GQ mag?!)

Check out the images of Jada, her hubby Chris and their adorable children in the photo gallery. Plus, read Jada’s exclusive quotes on her first year of marriage throughout the captions! [Read more…]

I’ve been itching to share this with you guys and the time is finally here! My former employer ESSENCE magazine tapped moi to cover the nuptials of NBA superstar Chris Paul and his wife Jada. You can check out the story in the November 2011 issue on pages 61-62 and over on Essence.com in their Bridal Bliss Wedding of the Week. (Be sure to watch the video, too.) This assignment admittedly caused me quite a bit of angst. Why? Well, while I’ve interviewed dozens of celebs in the past — from Heidi Klum to Steve Harvey — covering the Paul wedding was extra-special because it marked the first celebrity bridal-related story I nailed since launching Triple B. The stakes were high. Thankfully Chris and Jada couldn’t have been a more down-to-Earth couple. Once I calmed down and treated the story like a typical Tie the Knot Tuesday feature, I was just fine. Traveling to Charlotte, NC to cover the star-studded affair was technically work yet the entire wedding weekend felt like hanging out with family. Seriously. Here are my exclusive highlights you won’t read about anywhere else:
