Lil’ Murda got married y’all! Yep, that’s right, P-Valley star J Alphonse Nicholson and his longtime love Nafeesha tied the knot Friday, October 7, 2022, in Los Angeles. The amazing couple said their “I dos” in front of about 150 friends and family at the Vibiana, a cathedral-turned-event-hall in the downtown LA area, and it was all put together by Yunmi Park.

The couple exchanged thier vows in front of some famous friends, which included actor Lance Gross and wife Rebecca, The Chi star Miriam A. Hyman and her partner, FX’s Kindred actress Sheria Irving, Jerry O’Connell and wife Rebecca Romijn, and were entertained with a performance by crooner Adrien Marcel.

The occasion was catered by husband-and-wife team chef Neal Fraser and chef Amy Knoll Fraser, who also own the venue. The menu consisted of salmon and leek, curry cauliflower, braised chicken and even chicken tenders and fries for the kids!

J Alphonse and Nafeesha met in 2016 when he was just beginning his career has an actor on the stage in Oakland, who also, on the complete opposite side of the country, beat on buckets as a drummer in subway stations in NYC to make ends meet.

J Alphonse asked Nafeesha for her hand in marriage in 2019, right before the world shut down due to COVID-19, and while wedding plans were halted, the couple, still living long distance while he performed on Broadway in NYC, finally had the chance to spend a lot of time together. They got their first shared space in Los Angeles in 2020 and were inseparable.

“We just hung out and had a great time and just fell more and more in love with each other,” J Alphonse told ESSENCE in an interview. They also invited along their kids for the quarantine fun. J Alphonse has a son from a previous relationship, and Nafeesha has a daughter.

“We spent some quality time with our children and towards the end of the pandemic, I told her, I said, ‘Listen, I’m not trying to wait. We got to have this wedding, but I’m not trying to wait to have it. So can we just go down to this little spot, get married, go ahead and get my ring on my finger?’ She already had one. I wanted one on mine. So we made that happen and started to think about a date for the actual wedding.”

After pushing dates multiple times, the pair landed on October 7, 2022. As they returned to planning, they found themselves separated for 10 months as he went to work on the second season of P-Valley in Atlanta. But they were soon reunited, bond stronger than ever, and went into overdrive to plan the splendid nuptials that just took place.

Special touches included J Alphonse returning to his drum-playing roots, performing something special for Nafeesha on the same buckets he utilized in New York City subways. They also put the spotlight on other couples present at the wedding to see who was married the longest before receiving advice from them.

In addition to that, they had a now trendy cannabis bar at their event, featuring pre-rolls of “The Phonzie” that J Alphonse created with Black-owned brand Ball Family Farms. He’s a brand ambassador for the company and offered the strain as a wedding favor to guests. He’s been a cannabis lover since he was young. And while Nafeesha is not, she wanted to give him the chance to showcase something he’s passionate about.

“I don’t smoke,” she says. “But because it means so much to him it means so much to me too.”

Those touches helped their big day become a memorable one for all who had the blessing of being present for it. As for what the future holds, the Nicholsons are looking forward to continuing to support each other’s next big endeavors, including J Alphonse getting into directing and producing, and Nafeesha launching her first company next year.

They want to get a pad in LA with a backyard, a pool and a place for their kids, now 11 and 16, to hang out. Maybe they’ll even welcome a dog! But their biggest hope for the near future? As J says, “For us just to continue to grow and love on each other.”

Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
