Gabrielle Union Is Getting Married This Weekend…And Essence Atkins Will Be Officiating .

The big Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union wedding is going down this Saturday and while we don’t know much about the South Beach ceremony, we do know two things — they’ll be no bridal party and…Essence Atkins is officiating!
This weekend, HipHollywood caught up with the actress at an Emmy pre-party where she revealed her important duties. Apparently, it’ll be a couples thing because both Essence and her husband (whom she met on eharmony) are ordained wedding officiants and will be marrying Dwyane and Gabby. While her husband has officiated weddings before, (most notably Alfonso Ribero’s wedding,) Essence says that this will be her first time.
‘No pressure!!!!’
That droplet of tea is all the tea we’ll be getting, too. In an effort to plug leaks, guests will be ordered to sign confidentiality agreements before arriving at the wedding. Doesn’t matter who they are or their relation to the bride and groom, everyone must sign or be denied entry. Their phones and cameras will also be confiscated at the door.
And if someone does want to talk on what they saw or heard at the wedding, they should probably make sure their pockets are right because penalties are stiff!
In this day and age, we don’t really blame them though. If this policy wasn’t in place, their photos would be circulating the net before the officiators even had a chance to say, ‘You may kiss the bride.’  This puts Gabby and D Wade in control of their big day.
Watch Essence talk about her role in the wedding below:
