See Every Photo from Chance the Rapper's Romantic Weekend Wedding
Hip-hop star Chance the Rapper wed his longtime girlfriend Kirsten Corley on March 9 at the Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California, in a ceremony planned by Jeannie Savage of Details Details, PEOPLE confirms. Corley looked radiant in the Alma gown by Galia Lahav, hair by Yolanda Trejo of yo:u and makeup by Renee.
Chance and Corley began dating in 2013. After welcoming their daughter Kensli in 2015, the pair split in 2016 before reconciling the next year. Then Chance popped the question on July 4, 2018 at a family barbecue in their native Chicago; he confirmed the engagement the same day as the proposal, simply tweeting: “She said yes.”
Days before the wedding, the rapper revealed the sweet story of how he first met his bride on Twitter. When Chance was 9 years old, he attended a party at his mom’s office, where Corley performed a Destiny’s Child dance routine — and it was love at first sight.
“I knew I was gonna marry that girl,” he tweeted of the encounter, noting he was too nervous to introduce himself that night. “Sixteen years later it’s happening. This wknd is the time, and the place is my wedding. I’m gonna dance with my wife because this is my destiny.”
The Monday after the wedding, Chance shared some photos from the event, captioned simply (and sweetly), The Bennetts.
Although the couple are very private, last May, Chance offered some insight into their relationship when he wished her happy birthday on Instagram.
“From the beginning beginning to the end end. You are my oldest and best friend. You are responsible for everyone [sic] of the most wonderful things in my life,” he captioned a sweet slideshow of images. “I’m forever grateful that God made me find you, and even more grateful that you made me find God. Forever and ever babe.”
