Vanessa Williams has been married two times before her most recent wedding in 2015. The actress celebrated the big day by wearing a gorgeous designer gown. Vanessa looked happy as she married a man she met on another continent.


Vanessa Williams was previously married to public relations consultant Ramon Hervey and former Los Angeles Laker Rick Fox.


And while the ceremonies that joined her to those two men were beautiful, they were nothing in comparison to the one with Jim Skrip.


On her special day, the former Miss America looked glamorous as she rocked a Carmen Marc Valvo gown which featured a silk skirt and top. The skirt and top were belted with a wide gold band, which she paired with white pointy-toe heels and a traditional white veil.

The mother-of-four left her tresses to hang free and loose around her moderately made-up face.


Vanessa and her 55-year-old husband met during an Egyptian vacation that they had both separately embarked on in 2013. The pair struck up a conversation and soon found out that they were both from the state of New York.

Their meeting caused Vanessa to muse during a 2014 interview that:

“You go across the world to find somebody who is six hours away.”


By September of the same year, the actress and singer announced her engagement on "The Queen Latifah Show."

The happy couple had a second ceremony in 2016, a year after the first one. Vanessa wanted to have a wedding at her "little church," since the first one was at Skrip's hometown of Buffalo in New York.

Speaking of her husband to People magazine, the actress said:

"Jim is a real man. You want somebody in your life who has integrity, who is solid, who knows who he is. He's romantic and he's a great guy."


In return, Srip said of Vanessa that:

"Vanessa is a very strong, down-to-earth person, full of love, who values family and friends, practices her faith and is a great mom. Her beauty inside matches her external beauty."

Over the years, Vanessa has talked about her difficult past and she never lost hope that she would find her soulmate someday. So her marriage to Jim makes more than a few people happy.
