Like a diamond, real love is durable, shines brightly, and has many facets.

In 2003, couples celebrated some of those facets with creative and stylish nuptials, from an island affair for hip-hop’s most sought-after bachelor to a 50-yardline wedding for a female professional football player to a million-dollar matrimonial extravaganza for a pair of noteworthy ministers.

The “million-dollar” wedding of Dr. Juanita Bynum, well-known evangelist and author of the best-selling Matters of the Heart, to Bishop Thomas W. Weeks III featured a wedding party of 80, all friends and family, 1,000 guests, a 12-piece orchestra, and a 7.76-carat diamond ring. The black-tie wedding cost “more than a million,” the bride said, and included flowers flown in from around the world. “My dress,” she says, “took nine months to make.

“Million-dollar” wedding of Evangelist Juanita Bynum to Bishop Thomas Weeks III was held at the Regent Wall Street Hotel in New York and featured a wedding party, of more than 80 men, women and children and over 1,000 guests.
