This weekend, old-school rapper MC Lyte (born Lana Moorer) met someone at the altar in her white dress.


Lyte married John Wynche, a former Marine and entrepreneur at Sandals Royal Caribbean resort in Jamaica.

The two actually met online more than a year ago.

Guests at the beachside nuptials included a bevy of celebs like Kelly Price (who sang during their ceremony), SWV’s Coko and rappers Yo-Yo, Lil Mama and Slick Rick.


“It’s incredible so many people came out to support our union. We are starting out with a strong foundation,” Wynche told Essence. “A few months into getting to know Lana, I knew I wanted this woman as my wife.”

“It was so beautiful and a fairy tale,” says the 46-year-old of her first wedding. “I got my king.”

Congrats all around!
