Over the weekend, champion equestrian Paige Johnson, wed insurance broker Dudley Payne III at the Ocean Club in the Bahamas. The wedding took place on Saturday as part of a four-day celebration that began with a rehearsal dinner Thursday. On Friday, the couple had a beach party, and on Saturday, over 200 guests attended their lavish ceremony and reception.

R&B star Ne-Yo sang Elton John’s “Your Song” for the couple’s first dance and guests danced to songs spun by DJ Cassidy at the reception.  And on Sunday, the newlyweds hosted a farewell brunch.

Father-of-the-Bride, Bob Johnson (shown above), the co-founder of BET, spoke highly of his son-in-law, telling the Washington Post, “This guy is the perfect guy for Paige. He’s a true gentleman.” He added, “They’re both intensively competitive in their chosen fields.”

Paige, who walked the aisle in a Monique Lhullier gown, has been a competitive equestrian rider since age 5 and was included in a 2012 Town & Country cover story on heiresses of the horse world.

Congrats to the couple.

I'm so fucking appalled by

I'm so fucking appalled by these comments especially coming from the typing fingers of black women it's a shame how we limit ourselves by saying we should date our own race when our own race of black men are either in jail, gay, have hiv,dead, or have several baby mothers. If she wants to date outside her race who the fuck are you to say who she should date or marry you aren't on her level mentally or financially so until then your opinions are invalid. Some of you need a wake up call that not everybody feels comfortable dating their own race some of us have issues with it because a spew of nasty black men refuse to get up and do something with themselves or even better their life and the other races who are attracted to us give us a chance because we've been burnt too many times by the porch monkeys we call black men. Black women it's 2013 time to wake up and smell the freshness and the air and get off our high thrones because truth be told a.lot of men don't want to date black women anyway because of the way our behavior and attitude towards things are (example this blog post) stop acting like you know everything about someone when you don't get a life and a job.

And what you just typed makes

And what you just typed makes you look like the personification of that very thing. re: black women's behavior. Sis, you sound hella angry. And I must say this: What you focus on expands. Yes, there are some bros who behave like jerks. But hell, so do white men, Indian men, etc. I've interacted with them all. To limit all black men to the references that you gave -- in jail, gay, have hiv,dead, or have several baby mothers -- is a lie. What's funnier (or sadder) is that I hear black men say they are looking for sisters who got it together. A lot of bros on the ball are looking for good black women. A lot of them prefer to date good black women. But again, if a person's attitude is black men ain't shit, well, they wouldn't recognize a good man if he was standing in front of them. It's clear that as a people we're hurting. And we don't even love each other like we did at one time. Hell, a lot of us don't even know how to love ourselves.

Did you say porch monkey?

Did you say porch monkey? Wow. But how can you limit all black men to the categories you listed in the same breath you tell black women not to limit themselves?? Just to let you know all black men don't fit into the boxes you have here. I will stand up for them if nobody else will because I know good ones that don't deserve to be generalized just as much as black women don't

1. ALL black men "are not

1. ALL black men "are not either in jail, gay, have hiv, dead, or have multiple baby mothers" those are just the ones you go after. 2. (repeating your statement) "you aren't on her level mentally or financially so until then your opinions are invalid"??? Uhhhhh You don't know what level she's on mentally and you're definitely not on her financial level, so that would also make your opinion what?....... INVALID 3. (repeating another one of your statements) "Stop acting like you know everything about someone when you don't get a life and a job".....how about you take your own advice.

It's funny that when jewish

It's funny that when jewish marry jewish it's not a problem korean marry korean not a problem etc. etc. when those parents prefer their children marry their own no one bats an eye but the minute a black person says out loud they would and should marry their own it's suddenly racist or small minded. I would prefer my son and daughter to marry their own that's why I show them by example the value of a black union and teach them to up lift, respect and treasure the opposite sex of their own race.

If you look up the word

If you look up the word racist you'll see that black people cannot be racist. They can discriminate but a racist is someone who comes from the ethnic group in the position of power and that's not black hun.

Lets be real people, Black

Lets be real people, Black men don't want to marry her or date her because she is not biracial, latina, asian etc. So who is she suppose to marry! A man who is not afraid to date her and marry her that is who she is suppose to marry and that is who she did marry. Sheila Johnson is not a dumb woman, the woman is brillant, she is still a billionaire, and believe me her daughters money is very well protected. And Paige is no dummy herself, she is very smart and successful. Paige did not marry no broke deadbeat, her Mom would never allow that. The bottom line is that many of these Black men (rich or poor) do not want anything to do with Black women (rich or poor) so if a man who is not black marries and treats his Black woman good than I have no problem with them being together. We have to understand that Black women deserve to be married, treated right just like all the other races of women, and if our Black men don't want to be with us what are we suppose to do, especially if a man of another race is interested. So people don't be so quick to say that Paige is a sellout, and given all her money to a white man.

Is that what you think of

Is that what you think of yourself? As someone who is undesirable, even to men who look like her? You say, Paige's mom wouldn't let her marry "no broke deadbeat" -- so are you saying black men are "broke deadbeat[s]"? Why do so many black women have anger against black men? (And yes, why do so man black men have anger against black women?) This is a sick problem. It's fucking sad. I think people should follow their hearts and be with who they should be with. Yes, I believe they should. But this bullshit between black men and black women is STUPID. It's sick. And yes, I first noticed this a few years ago, with a few silly bros getting on large platforms saying why they don't date black women. They gave the most superficial, silly reasons. But I knew they weren't the majority, especially when so many degreed, "paid" bros were looking for sisters. So now, black women are responding with the same vitriol, focusing on a few idiots and letting them guide their lives. Honey, if I date outside my race, it's because me and that dude vibed. Not because I bought into some bullshit about bros.

Yeah but he's trying to leave the white house, and his wife. Jump offs be wining. look at'm all the athletes who marry their jump offs, I've got dreams ya'll. I'm not trying to work, you know how expensive it is to keep my nails, hair did every two weeks. I need a dude to pay my cable bill and my rent.lol

I'd be sitting at home

I'd be sitting at home watching RHOATL,Basketball Wives, Scandal taking notes, on how to be a successful jumpoff, because it's real in these streets, and I need a bank account with unlimited funds.

Black women are taking

Black women are taking Scandal too seriously. It's a scripted show written by an obese black woman and from her Valentines day rant probably has not been laid in years. That is all her fantasy. Same with Zane. Chances are if u can't pull a good black man you damn sure can't pull a good white one. White men don't do obesity, single moms or lack of education like black men. I have a girlfriend who has been married to a white man for 15yrs and they have 2 small kids under the age of 10. She has not worked since she met the man. Just to give u an ideal of how she look, before she married she use to date Eric Benet and Speech from Arrested development. Yes, all of us are from Milwaukee. All these basic bioootches running around talking bout imma get me a Fitz is making me wanna grab a bat. Fitz is going home to his white wife in real life.
