Last night (Mar. 18), model-actress and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Eva Marcille took to Instagram to clear up rumors regarding her wedding’s expenses.
“For some reason, there’s this big curiosity about how much money I spent for my wedding and how much per plate and all of this good stuff. Let’s be very clear, I paid for my own wedding. There were no loans. Nothing was done on barter. And I don’t know about the rest of you guys but if you’ve ever planned a wedding, it’s per person not per plate. So when it comes to floral, decor, when it comes to chairs. I didn’t have plastic chairs,” Marcille explained.
“When it comes to tables. When it comes to the champagne you sip from the moment you walked into the door until the moment you left. From valet to security to lighting to everything. I had musicians around the clock. Let’s be clear, so when I say it was $1,000 a head, I mean it was $1,000 a head, not $1,000 a plate.And how about we start minding business we invest in? How about that for starters?”
The former America’s Next Top Model contestant’s wedding was featured in the last episode of RHOA on Sunday (Mar. 17).
She married Atlanta-based attorney Michael Sterling on Oct. 7, 2018. The newlyweds share a son together, and her husband Michael also treats her daughter from a previous relationship as his own.
During the last episode of RHOA, Marcille mentioned that people asked her if her husband was going to formally adopt her daughter and she said that it’s not needed because he’s already her dad in his heart.
