    'I felt like an Egyptian goddess': Vanessa Williams dons TWO stunning gowns for wedding to her 'hometown guy' Jim Skrip..:beer:
    Vanessa Williams had more reason than most to celebrate on Independence Day.

    The 52-year-old tied the knot with her partner of three years and 'hometown guy' Jim Skrip on Saturday in front of family and close friends in Buffalo, New York.

    The beauty Queen-turned-actress surprised everyone - including her husband - by donning not one but two gorgeous gowns during the intimate ceremony.

    White wedding: Vanessa Williams got married in Buffalo, New York on Saturday as she wore two gowns

    Gilt: The 52-year-old married Jim Skrip as she also wore this intricate gold number in addition to the traditional white gown

    The couple met three years ago in Egypt, and Vanessa paid homage with a stunning ivory white trailing gown with a gold band around her svelte waist

    'I felt like an Egyptian goddess, and that was exactly the theme I was going for,' she told People Magazine.

    After walking up the aisle at St Stanislaus Roman Catholic church radiant in white, the Ugly Betty star then slipped into an intricate golden dress for the exchanging of the vows, to the 52-year-old former accountant's delight.

    Inspired: As the two met three years ago in Egypt, there was obvious influence in the dress from that country

    They're married! After the ceremony, the couple walked outside to a rousing ovation

    Sweet ride: After the wedding, the two drove off in a vintage Rolls Royce

    Madame Noire: 'I was on vacation with my daughter going to Egypt, cruising on the Nile. I wasn't looking for anything. I’d been alone for a number of years and divorced for ten years at that time. I found a hometown guy from my mom’s town in Buffalo, New York and started a conversation.'

    Good vibes: The guests all seemed to be in good spirits as they exited the church after the beautiful ceremony

    Classic: The wedding took place at St Stanislaus Roman Catholic church

    Towering: The venue was in Buffalo as Jim as well as Vanessa's mother Helen is from there

    'He was wearing a Buffalo Sabres shirt, and I walked over to him and said, ‘Are you from Buffalo? My mom’s from Buffalo,’ the former Desperate Housewife explained to People. 'There was an immediate attraction, and after a long, three-hour dinner, we had so much in common. It was obviously meant to be!'

    The Emmy winner is no stranger to heading down the aisle, having done it twice before.

    She was married movie producer Ramon Hervey from 1987 to 1997 and they share daughters Melanie and Jillian, as well as 22-year-old son Devin.

    She was also married to NBA star Rick Fox but they divorced in 2005 after six years of marriage, and have a daughter Sasha, 15.

    An actress who was Miss America.

    I'm sure she's down to Earth and easy to live with.

    The Skrip family fortune will soon be challenged.

    Just facts. The only time Egyptians could ever be called black is when they shared an empire with the Nubians. Other than that, they were Middle-Eastern/ Indian looking, more than anything. If you need to get technical to uphold your fantasies, then Egyptians are really brown with Middle Eastern features. Of course, the delusion that African-Americans are descended from a great empire of people would put them in the precarious position of being slave owners at one very long point in their history, making American slavers look like pikers. Since they see no statute of limitations on reparations, maybe they ought to start coughing up some bucks for the Jews.

    Did you see that she was on a trip to Egypt with her kid and that's where they met? Many people pay homage to such things at their weddings :dontknow:

    Yes, because Vanessa Williams certainly doesn't appear to be of mixed race descent.

    How did she find the time to get married in between matches? Isn't she right in the middle of trying to win the Wimbledon tournament?

    No wonder you have so many nig reps, err NEG reps. Stupid can be a bitch sometimes.
    A DNA test revealed that her ancestry is 23% from Ghana, 17% from the British Isles, 15% from Cameroon, 12% Finnish, 11% Southern European, 7% Togo, 6% Benin, 5% Senegal and 4% Portuguese.
