All of the Romantic, Quirky Photos from Raven-Symoné's Surprise Wedding
Raven-Symoné and Miranda Pearman-Maday tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on June 16
To Have and to Hold
On June 16, the Raven's Home actress surprised fans by revealing on Instagram that she recently married Miranda Pearman-Maday.
"I got married to a woman who understands me from trigger to joy, from breakfast to midnight snack, from stage to home," she captioned the post. "I love you Mrs. Pearman-Maday! Let's tear this world a new a--hole!!! I's married NOW."
Sealed with a Kiss
In this week's issue of PEOPLE, the former Cosby Show star, 34, and new wife Maday, 32, exclusively open up about their secret wedding (which only had six guests!), the intimate details, and how it was a "reflection" of their future together.
“Despite being someone who has kept my personal life private, I decided to share this moment because it’s one of the biggest and happiest of my life," says Symoné.
"Miranda makes me feel confident and empowered in an entirely new way. We planned our ceremony together and it was a true reflection of our love and partnership," she shares.
Hostess with the Mostess
The event — which was held in famed choreographer and Grey's Anatomy star Debbie Allen's garden — was officiated by their pal Erica Summers and included a catered meal created by Allen, a longtime friend of Symoné's.
"She was trying to keep it so simple and I said, 'Come on, you have to have something,' " says Allen. "She said, 'Well I just want oysters.' She loves my oysters I make for her. I made her some lobster pasta and got her a triple berry cake from Sweet Lady Jane. You only get married once ... it was a joy to do that for her."
"They both tattooed the letters PM on their ring fingers — representing Raven's last name, which is Pearman, and Miranda's last name, Maday," tattoo artist Daniel Winter of Winter Stone tells PEOPLE.
"For Raven and Miranda, these tattoos were a symbol of their incredible love and partnership — it was an honor to be a part of such a special milestone for them both."
"There were maybe six people there," says Allen. "It was very intimate. They are going to plan to have a big celebration when COVID-19 is contained enough to do that. There are so many people that want to celebrate them."
She adds: "Miranda is so beautiful and so sweet. It's such a great pairing. I'm so happy for them both."
Even though the happy couple were an hour late to their own wedding, Pearman-Maday says it was "perfect."
"It was joyful, intimate, filled with laughter, great food, music and a last-minute peanut butter delivery for me — all things I know my future with Raven will hold," the business owner says. "I feel so grateful to be doing life with my love!"
