BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — When many were celebrating the Nation’s independence, Vanessa Williams and her now husband Jim Skrip celebrated the sacrament of marriage.
Skrip, a Depew native who attended St. Bonaventure University, tied the knot with Williams, a former Miss America contestant, on July 4, but it was closed to the press. For the first time, the public is getting a look at the opulent wedding thanks to People Magazine.
The couple celebrated their marriage with an Egyptian themed reception at the Statler following the ceremony at St. Stanislaus church. The couple met on separate vacations in Egypt and planned the reception to celebrate how they met.
