Vick proposed to his longtime lady love back in 2009, during her 29th birthday party, a year later he gave his boo a fully loaded Porsche Panamera as a birthday gift.
It’s no secret that Kijafa stood by her man while he served 21 months in prison for his role in an illegal dog-fighting ring, but now Mike has stood by his woman (and mother of his children) in a much deserved star-studded Miami wedding held over the weekend.
The superstar quarterback signed a six-year, $100 million contract with the Philadelphia Eagles last year and just a few months later it was revealed that he and Kijafa had planned a summer 2012 wedding.
Vick picked up a few bucks over the weekend by playing host to a few Miami events prior to his big day.
The wedding festivities were held at Miami’s Fountainebleu hotel.
About 300 invited guests included: family members, friends and NFL colleagues of Vick.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White, Eagles head coach Andy Reid, Running back LeSean McCoy, Plaxico Burress and retired New Orleans Saint Aaron Brooks were among the attendees.
The groom’s party was reportedly dressed in a tropical theme, pairing their tuxes with pink and purple shirts.
The ceremony and reception took place later in one of the large ballrooms on the hotel’s second floor.
Security was reportedly tighter than tight and police were stationed outside the ballroom to collect all cameras and cellphones from guests (hence NO leaked pics as of yet).
The menu is rumored to have consisted of lobster, oysters and shrimp, but also chicken and waffles for those less inclined to do seafood.
According to a server, the Fontainebleau, one of South Florida’s most expensive hotels where wedding dinners start at $185-a-plate, had never served chicken & waffles at a wedding reception before… (but there’s a first time for everything… right?)
Bossip secured even more details from the wedding, reporting:
Since Kijafa’s mom passed a few years back she walked down the aisle after the vows holding Mikes hand and an airbrushed pillow with her moms face on it. Both looked EXTREMELY happy as if they saw each other for the first time.
Vick’s younger brother Marcus was the best man and the bridemaids were dressed in sleek, svelte, long black strapless silk gowns.
The reception was hosted by Philadelphia TV/Radio personality Kendra G and sounds provided by DJ Aktive.
Word is the couple will have their honey moon in Puerto Rico (no confirmation as of yet).
Vicks son Mitez was the star of the reception as he dougied, 2 stepped all night. The people partied until around 2am.
Vick reportedly spent around $700,000 for the wedding and he and Kijafa shared the following photo after spending their first full day as man and wife…
“Me and My boo… Wifey always out do me with the shoe game….”
Awwww…. how cute is that!?!
Congratulations to the happy couple!!
Love is beautiful….
