Congratulations to the newlyweds! Raymond Santana Jr. — one of the exonerated “Central Park Five” — and “Flavor of Love” reality star Deelishis got married in Duluth, Georgia, on Saturday, June 6. The couple tied the knot six months after being engaged, but their relationship may not have been possible if it were not for Kandi Burruss being in the mix.
On Sunday, June 7, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality star posted a photo on Instagram that showed her at their wedding. Rocking a green bridesmaids dress and holding a bouquet of red roses, the singer-songwriter struck her pose in between Santana and Deelishis. Santana donned a white suit with a black vest and black bowtie while his bride wore a white ballgown and a bridal hairpiece.
Burruss revealed in her caption that she was responsible for setting up the pair. She wrote: “Congratulations @santanaraymond & @iamsodeelishis!!!!! I’m so happy for y’all & Im happy to say that I had a little something to do with this love connection!❤️❤️.”
Burruss’ post received over 300,000 likes and some 4,000 comments from people teasing the 44-year-Burruss for playing matchmaker.
