‘The Real’ co-host Jeannie Mai and Jeezy show the WORLD how to have a SECRET, intimate, cozy WEDDING during COVID-19 and how to do it RIGHT!
Emmy award–winning TV host and activist Jeannie Mai and Grammy-nominated recording artist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Jeezy were married in an intimate ceremony at their home in Atlanta on March 27, 2021, one year after their engagement.
The couple met when he was a guest on her daytime talk show The Real. “Years later, he asked me out on a date,” Jeannie remembers. “We shared a romantic sushi dinner in Los Angeles and salsa danced the night away.
Later that evening, he asked if I could picture spending the rest of my life with him. And crazy enough, I could.” In March 2020, the couple was forced to cancel a planned trip to Vietnam, where unbeknownst to Jeannie, Jeezy had planned to propose.
Instead, he put together a special quarantine Vietnam-themed date night, in honor of her home country, at his house in Los Angeles that ended with him popping the question in front of the fireplace. She said, “Yes!” The couple wanted to get married at Lake Como or in the South of France.
“We were really looking forward to having all of our friends and family there to celebrate,” Jeannie says. “But we had to change all of our wedding plans due to COVID. After Jeezy’s mother unexpectedly passed, we quickly learned that life is too short. And at the end of the day, Jeezy and I really just wanted to become husband and wife. So we decided to turn our original wedding into a mini-mony, where we exchanged our vows in front of our immediate family and a few close friends.” In order to make their event as safe as possible for everyone in attendance, they required negative COVID-19 test results from those traveling in two days prior to the wedding. In addition to that, on the day of the ceremony, they provided COVID-19 tests for everyone attending. “Once everyone was tested and confirmed negative, our guests were shuttled to the surprise location—our home,” Jeannie says.
