Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally Tie the Knot in Chicago
Sherri Shepherd from “The View” is a married woman now!
Shepherd married her fiance Lamar Sally Saturday (Aug 13) in a ceremony at the Fairmont Hotel in the View co-host’s hometown of Chicago. Her 6-year-old son Jeffrey walked her down the aisle.
Shepherd tweeted just about every detail in the moments leading up to her big day and until she actually walked down the aisle.
“Going to bed now… Sal is in his suite. My last day as a single woman. Thank you Jesus for being in the midst of all this. Gotta get sleep,” she said the night before.
“What happens when you are in your wedding dress and you have to tinkle? Uh-oh!” she tweeted right before she walked down the aisle.
Bridesmaids at Sherri’s wedding included her “View” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and actresses/comedians Niecy Nash and Yvette Nicole Brown.
The wedding will be broadcast in an upcoming special on the Style network on September 13th, titled “Wedding Fabulous: Sherri Shepherd Gets Married.”
Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally were introduced to each other by mutual friend Jay Tucker, who just got married himself back in May to Shepherd’s bridesmaid Niecy Nash. They got engaged after Sally, a TV writer, proposed to Shepherd in December 2010.
Speaking in early January about the engagement, Shepherd told her “View” co-hosts that she decided to marry Sally because “he not only loves me, he adores my son and my son adores him.”
