Chance the Rapper Marries His Longtime Girlfriend in Luxurious yet Traditional Wedding

Chance the Rapper is officially a married man! The artist married his childhood sweetheart Kirsten Corley in a lavish, star-studded wedding over the weekend.

The Chicago-based singer/songwriter exchanged vows with Corley on Saturday at the Pelican Hill resort in Newport Beach, California.

Chance (birth name Chancelor Bennett), looked handsome in a white tuxedo with black bow-tie while his bride dazzled in a strapless white gown.

"I’m gonna dance with my wife because this is my destiny.”

Countless white roses lined the aisle and altar at the outdoor ceremony, and according to E! News, the bride and groom walked down the aisle to the performance of a string quartet.

Sitting front row as the couple said their “I Dos” was their three-year-old daughter Kensli. In one of the wedding photos shared by The Shade Room, Chance, 25, and Corley seemed to be praying with their daughter who the rapper carried as they stood before the minister.

On Monday, Chance also shared a couple of surreal images from their wedding photo-shoot, tagging it simply “The Bennetts.”

A previous post was dedicated to “the men who mentored” and shows the Grammy winner flanked on both sides by celebrity friends Kanye West, Dave Chappelle, and gospel artist Kirk Franklin. West’s wife, Kim Kardashian was also one of the 150 guests in attendance at the nuptials.

A few days before his wedding, Chance did a Twitter thread, narrating how he met Corley at his mother’s office party when he was nine years old.

The “Coloring Book” rapper recalled Corley and two friends performing to Destiny's Child's "Independent Women, Part 1" and his father urging him to show off his dancing skills as well.

“This wasn’t the time or place. Not just because it wasn’t my party, not because it was their moment to dance, not even cause I was nervous about dancing in front of folks. It’s cause I knew I was gonna marry that girl.”
