R&B singer Tank married his longtime girlfriend Zena Foster on Sunday.
The couple who have two children together tied the knot before 200 friends with the actor, Jamie Fox as groomsman. The ceremony took place at First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. The reception followed shortly at Los Angeles’ Alexandria Ballrooms.
The “Maybe I Deserve” singer, born Durrell Babbs, 42, and his longtime love Zena Foster, 40, said “I do” on Sunday, July 22, in front of 200 friends and family at the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles.
“I’m excited to see her walk down the aisle, her dress and her whole heavenly aura just captivate the place,” the singer told PEOPLE just ahead of the big day.
The bride wore a lace J’Aton Couture gown from Lovella Bridal for the ceremony before slipping into a dress by Zahavit Tshuba for the reception. The groom and his groomsmen stepped out in tuxedos by Greyscale with Tank in a custom bowtie by DLeak.
Among the spiffy groomsmen, was the groom’s close friend of 15 years, Jamie Foxx. Not only did Foxx show up to support Tank, but he also provided some comic relief for the big occasion, before later performing for the couple. “I’m looking forward to him cracking jokes on the wedding day,” Tank said. “The goofball session is going to be at an all-time high when we’re standing there.”
While Foxx, who’s been spotted out recently with Katie Holmes, was extended a plus one, Tank didn’t confirm who’d be his friend’s date for the event. “I just told him to make sure you use it wisely,” the singer said with a laugh.
Other notable members of the bridal party were the couple’s two children together, daughter Zoey, 10, who served as a junior bridesmaid and son Zion, 3, who was ring bearer. Best Man duties went to singer J. Valentine. After exchanging rings designed by Leor Yerushalma of The Jewelers of Las Vegas, the pair sealed their new life together with a kiss.
The pair, who first met 18 years ago, previously dated, welcomed their first child together, and then broke up.
