'Setting the trend' is what makes Beenie Man top of the game and one could only expect the same from his truly 'heavenly' wedding.

The union of Michelle Downer, 'D'Angel', and Moses Davis, at Craighton Estate, St. Andrew, was literally aglow as the all-white wedding lit up the night. But why an all-white wedding, when white is normally reserved for the bride? Beenie told The Gleaner it was all about D'Angel. "I've been to two weddings from year and I didn't like the dress of what people were wearing. The angel thing of course came from my wife, I'm getting married to one. It brought a sort of peace and a loving mood. A white wedding is a better wedding to have, mi set the trend dem. It's the best I've been to from year."

Mrs. Davis was happy with the occasion as well, she looked fabulous, her dress and veil, covered with crystals, was designed to adequately cover her protruding stomach.

She says "The dress was custom- made, to suit my pregnancy. It was made by Justin Alexander. I'm very happy, the wedding turned out better than I expected. I knew about the concept and thing but I never knew it would look that good. All that white and when I came and saw it, the reflections of the light, it was just fabulous," she said.

Surprisingly, most of the guests showed up in their full suit of white, showing their respect to the hosts by adhering to the dress code. Only a few men tried to spruce up their outfits by wearing green, pink and black ties. Some women looked like they took their old wedding dresses out of the

closet for one last wear. One lady disregarded the dress code altogether, in a pink skirt and top. To beat the similarity of complete white, guests invested in their hair, with most having long elaborate, hairdos, and one woman took it overboard, wearing a white wig.

The hairdos, and clothes weren't the only pricey aspect, as the wedding looked like it cost a small fortune. D'Angel laughingly admits "I don't know the exact amount but let's just say it's an undetermined sum for the dress and the wedding." The wedding ring, which was platinum and diamonds "cost a whole heap of money," according to Beenie. "I can't even bother calculating that now," he said.

The cost was obviously worth it, as the day after 'the Doctor' affirmed "I feel happy, I'm a happily married man now."
