JUST MARRIED: NBA Baller Dahntay Jones & Valeisha Butterfield!

Celebrity wedding season continues!  Indiana Pacers baller Dahntay Jones wed his fiancee, WEEN co-founder & Chair Valeisha Butterfield, tonight in North Carolina.

 

Deets inside...

Valeisha's parents are both government honchos--her father is U.S. Congressman Butterfield of North Carolina.  And her mother is a part of the state Congress.  So the couple hosted weddng festivities at both the Duke University chapel (Dahntay's alma mater) and at her fabulous family home Saturday evening.

Valeisha's bestie Emily B. of "Love & Hip Hop" was there of course, as well as Emily's son Johan ho served as ring-bearer, since Valeisha is his Godmother. 

Other guests were Valeisha's good friends Rocsi Diaz, Letoya Luckett, Mashonda, Alesha Renee and more. 

D-Nice DJ'd and Lil' Mo sang for the couple.

After the ceremony, Valeisha tweeted: "I'm officially Mrs. Dahntay L. Jones. God is a wonderful God."

And her friends gushed about all the love in the air as well:


 

Congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Jones!

BONUS:  Dahntay was spotted getting his groom manicure on ahead of his wedding.  Who says athletes don't "manscape?"

Check out the couple's official engagement photo HERE.

G.K and my dad are cousins

G.K and my dad are cousins also, and ever since I can remember we've never been close G.K, Valeisha, or her sister because it was like an unspoken factor that they were "too good". Being raised in an educated home with money shouldn't make you feel better than anyone. I've always wanted to know this side of the family more, but never felt "worthy" enough to reach out. When I heard she was engaged to The Game, I was like "wow, that's my cousin", so it doesn't surprise me that she married this gay lookin dude cuz he's a baller. I mean, that's not hate either, it's just me as an independent woman much rather wanting to be able to stand on my own 2 feet without my parents or a man's name or bank account to be my foundation. Anyway, I do wish them the best. They are married and what God put together, let no man put asunder. Best wishes to "The Joneses"

Emily B had too much time on

Emily B had too much time on her hands to tweet so many times....probably wishing that Fabulous would make her his wife. Sorry Emily B......this is how you get the man ...you have you OWN career and life ...so that he recognizes that you add value to the big picture. Best of luck to the ambitious...doing it for themselves couple.

the best ever I paid $32.68

the best ever I paid $32.68 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, http://to.ly/aPdt

No it's not getting married

No it's not getting married is probably the dumbest thing anyone can do and getting married young just doubles the stupidity!!!!!

@Martle13...actually her father is white and her mom is black. i used to work for her mother as an intern....and they are divorced.

Actually her father is indeed

Actually her father is indeed black and he is a part of the CBC which only admits black members of congress. A white member tried some years ago because his constiuents were predominately black...but he was rejected. A simple google search would tell you that the man is indeed white. So much for you working as an intern in her office...you probably never even interacted with that woman to know any better anyway

"...So much for you working

"...So much for you working as an intern in her office...you probably never even interacted with that woman to know any better anyway"....why is all that necessary? really? a simple, no he's black would suffice; but now you get to have a personal moment of victory for "giving it to someone" on a blog site. And for your information, the state office is unlike a congressional office, the people are very much so accessible. So go ahead and keep googling, since that's what you do best...who am I to judge someone who clearly has nothing better to do.

Valeisha's father is a white

Valeisha's father is a white man with white and black ancestry. He emigrated from the Bahamas. You can easily find his information and pictures on wikipedia... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._K._Butterfield

This is gonna sound soooo old fashioned, but when did marring dark brown women become such a no no. all these men are with women who are racialy ambiguos, or extremely fair skinned. Im not dark skinned & i'm still like damn!

It doesn't sound old fashioned it sounds stupid. If you meet someone and fall in love with that individual it goes far beyond the color of the person's skin.. I will be damned if I turn down love b/c the dude isn't my shade of brown.. Sorry Love just try again...
Kellz's picture

What are you talking about?

What are you talking about? Dark skinned women get married everyday, you may not see pictures because they are not in the public eye but that doesn't mean its not happening. What would you like for people to do? Say Onote to heart, you must only fall in love with a dark skinned woman". You cannot help who you fall in love with.
