Yeah, sor­ry I found those pics too. Def­i­nite­ly not corn­rows, but she’s nat­ur­al and she put her hair up. Cool. I still remem­ber Tyra fight­ing her about straight­en­ing her hair. Dra­ma!

A pho­tog­ra­ph­er friend of mine took some pic­tures of the wed­ding. He post­ed some pics on his web­site: http://blog.richardlouissaint.com/?p=2864

I am have some seri­ous hair envy when I see her.

Con­grats! I love the pick of the bou­quet toss. I wish I were nat­ur­al when I got mar­ried I would have defi­nat­ly rocked it!

Yep! I called it! But what I’m real­ly lov­ing is the details of her dress!

Jasminicole

yes, con­grats to yaya!
but those are a part of her head­dress, not corn­rows :-/ but still beau­ti­ful all the same

Patricia Kayden

Just watched her small part in “In Time”.

Con­grats Yaya!

manisimone

Go yayaaaaaa!!! She was my favorite on that ANTM cycle :)

Elle

I’m not real­ly sure that those are corn­rows. It looks like a part of the charm/headpiece that she appears to be wear­ing. None the less, Yaya is look­ing beau­ti­ful as usu­al. It’s nice to see that she con­tin­ued to stay true to her­self on her big day.

BeautyIAM

She is just so beau­ti­ful. Con­grat­u­la­tions to her!

IntegratedMemoirs

Con­grats to her and the Hub­by :-)

I think I can’t see her hair.…..

Curly Queen

I hope they get bet­ter pic­tures soon.

BamBam

Con­grats! Yaya is my fav. ANTM con­tes­tant!

Vonnie

Doubt it, lol. She strikes me as the low-key, very per­son­al “her-wed­ding-pics-will-not-see-the-light-of-day” a-la Bey­once and Jay-Z type. Those look like pics some­one snuck off a cam­era phone.

Jessica

Can’t even see it. Lol

miss j

She’s one of the rea­sons I went NATURAL!!!!
SHE HAS BEAUTIFUL HAIR!!! NOW, MINE IS AS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Wish­ing her a Blessed mar­riage!!!!

Landry

I have always been a fan of Yaya, ever since she was ANTM. She seems like such a classy, down to earth lady, and is a fan­tas­tic actress and mod­el. I have so much respect for celebri­ties that focus on their craft, rather than the lime­light. Con­grats to her and her hubby—she was a beau­ti­ful bride!

Gerpha

She looks great. Hap­py cou­ple. (:

Natalee

Wait, wait, wait! Can we go back to the mar­ried part?!?! Con­grat­u­la­tions to her! I wish I could see a bet­ter pic­ture of her hair though.

EAT.STYLE.PLAY

Exact­ly I had no idea she was get­ting mar­ried, but she does has a bud­ding act­ing career. Con­grats to her!

Mia_P

Y’all couldn’t get a bet­ter pic­ture. These pic­tures were tak­en far away, blur­ry and I can­not even see her hair­style or the corn­rows part. But I always liked her and she looks beau­ti­ful. Con­grats girl!

BeautyIAM

Its bet­ter to just ignore this chick. I real­ly don’t know why she’s here. I think shes lost or some­thing…

bajee

Ha Ha! She’s lost. LOL.

Annie L.

Her husband’s work seems inter­est­ing! Con­grats to the beau­ti­ful YaYa, I loved Eva on ANTM, but YaYa looks love­ly and best of luck to the cou­ple!

Aiych

DiJah

Con­grat­u­la­tions Yaya!!!

Karen

Who, sor­ry nev­er heard of her…

NikNak

LOL. You just came in here to be mean, and to your cha­grin no one else shares your sen­ti­ments. We’ve nev­er heard of the women BGLH choos­es to put up as Hair­style Icons, and you aren’t there clam­ing you’ve nev­er heard of them. Go be a shrew on a gos­sip site. I’m sure your com­ments will go over bet­ter over there, where you belong.

Tetima

Aww I’m so hap­py for her and wish her a friut­ful mar­ried life!! Loved her on ANTM then and love her even more now.

Tiffani

Haha­ha Niknak! I agree.

Biola

Why would you com­ment on a post just to say you’ve nev­er heard of some­one? Does it mean that per­son is irrel­e­vant? Or does it mean you just don’t know? It’s just eas­i­er to look them up on google/wikipedia instead of pro­claim­ing the per­son isn’t some­one you know of.

Barbara

Lol, same here until I read the **help­ful post below.

juicyfruit

Yaya is a mod­el known from America’s Next Top Mod­el (ANTM)… ANTM is a TV show where girls com­pete to win a con­tract with a top mod­el­ing agency.

Karen

Gog­gle is a great search engine, it does noth­ing for the fact I have nev­er heard of her!!!

Patricia Kayden

She was also in the movie, “In Time”.

You may have seen her before, though. After ANTM, she was in the movie Tron and The Kids Are Alright.Pretty much the “black chick” in both those movies.

Tiffani

Well now you have. :-).

freeretrochics

I always was torn between Yaya and Eva the diva,but I loved that she didn’t want to change any­thing about her­self. Con­grat­u­la­tions!

KD

GAWJUS! Con­grat­u­la­tions goes out to the cou­ple.
