    NeNe Leakes looked like a million bucks and apparently spent a bit more than that on her lavish wedding to husband Gregg Leakes.

    “It was more romantic this time than the first,” NeNe told Life & Style magazine. “Gregg and I are real adults, so it was better.”

    It was wedding No. 2 for the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality star/actress who remarried her husband on Saturday in front of 400 guests, including Fantasia Barrino and former “Basketball Wives” star Jennifer Williams, who was a bridesmaid.

    Unlike her first time around, NeNe was walked down the aisle by sons Bryson Bryant and Brentt Leakes.

    “That was so emotional for me,” she said. “And Gregg was telling me I was beautiful—that was really special. I had a lot of teary moments.”

    According to Life & Style, the shindig cost approximately $1.8 million.

    “I came up with the idea of having an Old Hollywood theme because I thought it would be completely fabulous and everyone would be able to have fun with it,” said NeNe who wore a $20,000 Pnina Tornai dress for the reception.

    While most brides wish to be the only women in white at their ceremonies, NeNe’s bridesmaids, including co-star Cynthia Bailey, wore white Gabrielle Arango gowns.

    Although she’s a Hollywood gal now, NeNe added a taste of her southern upbringing with a menu that included biscuits, macaroni and cheese, shrimp and grits and fried chicken.

    “I just did it my way!” she said.

    Fans will get to see it all for themselves when Bravo airs “I Dream of NeNe.”
