Guest included Dave Chapelle, Kirk Franklin, as well as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
An eyewitness revealed that, “after the ceremony, Kim and Kanye hung out with Dave Chappelle on the lawn. They were all laughing together and having a great time. They posed for photos and Chance came over to chat. They congratulated him and gave him hugs,” the eyewitness continued. “Kim and Kanye were offered some champagne. Kim passed but Kanye took a glass. Then they walked inside together for the reception. It looked like they were very happy to be there and to see their friend get married. They both never stopped smiling.”
