This summer, two of our favorite Real Housewives got married, adding to Hollywood’s most lavish and extraordinary celebrity weddings. We of course are speaking about our friends Nene Leakes and Tamra Barney, both of whom are scheduled to air Wedding Spin-offs on Bravo this September!
We want to take a moment and share with you the fun experience we had with each of these beautiful ladies designing some elements for their nuptials. First up, Miss Nene Leakes!!!

Real Housewives of Atlanta, Nene Leakes had a 1.8 million dollar wedding in Atlanta, GA and her wedding spin-off “I Dream Of Nene-The Wedding” will air on Sept 17th @ 9pm on Bravo! It is set to be one of the best Housewives spin-offs yet! Youngsong initially met with Nene and her entourage at our Beverly Hills Showroom to go over preliminary designs and concepts. They then met again at the Wildflower Linen Headquarters where our 25,000 sq ft warehouse of fabrics, linens and accessories became a world of imagination for the bride to be. “Nene [and her bridesmaid Marlo Hampton] were very hands-on in the design process and I loved every minute of working with these talented ladies”, said Youngsong Martin. We can’t spill the beans but you’ll be seeing a gorgeous ceremony and wedding reception fit for a queen! Youngsong was even invited to the wedding and flew to Atlanta for the bride’s special day!

“Each episode follows NeNe as she plans the wedding of a lifetime and puts her team of experts to the test in executing her dream vision. Alongside NeNe is her bridal party, including Laura Govan, Jennifer Williams, Cynthia Bailey and Marlo Hampton, who bring a fair share of drama and fabulousness to the classy affair,” read a Bravo press release.
REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY – TAMRA BARNEY
We also had a lovely time at our design meetings with Real Housewives of Orange County star, Tamra Barney who married Eddie Judge June 15th St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point, Calif. Tamra and her celebrity event planner who is a dear friend of ours, Diann Valentine, shared a day with us at our Buena Park Showroom to go over décor elements for the bride to be. Tamra’s taste is very stylish and we can’t wait to watch her show! She looked absolutely stunning in her extravagant bridal gown and two other dresses she wore at the wedding, all designed by Mark Zunino. The nuptials will be featured on Bravo’s Tamra’s OC Wedding, premiering Monday, Sept. 2.
Take a look at the beautiful photos captured Christine Bentley Photography and the wedding featured in US Weekly Magazine.
