COVID-19 may have shut down “RHOA” production, but it didn’t shut down Cynthia Bailey’s wedding.
The “Housewives” star, 53, recently told Page Six that she and her husband, Mike Hill, took every precaution imaginable to keep their 250 guests safe for their Oct. 10 wedding.
“I have to say for anyone that’s really trying to do an event or a wedding like I did, if you’re willing to take all the precautions that we did, like COVID kind of took over our wedding,” she told us while promoting her partnership with McDonald’s McCafe.
“Like I was not agonizing over what food to taste or my cake, what it looked like,” she added. “I was literally like, ‘So what company’s coming to come and spray and disinfect the place the day of the wedding?’”
On the big day, guests at the Governors Towne Club in Acworth, Georgia, got temperature checks and were required to wash their hands before entering the wedding. Masks, face shields and hand sanitizer were available as well.
“We had people walking around encouraging people to put their mask on whenever they took it off because they had to obviously take it off to eat and drink,” she said. “And, you know, we had to stay on a couple of people about that. But for the most part, a lot of people left right after the ceremony, which was kind of great because that took that pressure off. Like I was really like for a new bride, it’s like crazy to actually be happy that people are leaving!”
She also noted that the couple originally planned to host their wedding outdoors, but Hurricane Delta interfered with their plans and forced them to move indoors just two days before the nuptials.
The couple had thought about postponing their big day in lieu of the precautions, but ultimately decided due to their moms’ health to move forward because they felt that “tomorrow is not promised.”
“Our hard work paid off because we haven’t had anyone — it’s like, I don’t know, a couple, two or three weeks since the wedding happened — and no one has called or reached out and said anything about testing positive due to our wedding,” she said. “So God is good.”
Page Six reported this week that filming on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” was shut down for two weeks after a production member tested positive for COVID-19.
