On June 22, 2008 the most prestigious members of hip hop’s hierarchy gathered at Oranjestad, Aruba for music mogul Timbaland’s walk down the aisle. Already pronounced husband and wife with an intimate “I do” in Virginia on June 10, the record producer and publicist Monique Idlett received a blessing of their love during a sunset ceremony held at the Renaissance Resort and Casino, a 556-room retreat on a private 40-acre island, boombox.com reports.
Knowing that their union is a bond not only between themselves but also their family, the couple involved the groom’s children in the ceremony. The bride was escorted past 300 guests by the groom’s son Demetrius, while the hip hop artist’s other son made his father proud as he walked down the aisle in the role of ring bearer. Reign, the happy couple’s baby girl, was also on hand to witness her parents pledge their devotion to each other.
Following the ceremony Missy Elliott, Omarion, Ginuwine and Kerri Hilson were among the friends and family members to gather together to watch a fireworks display illuminate the sky over Oranjestad, Aruba.
