The actors Tika Sumpter and Nicholas James, who met on the set of their show “The Haves and Have Nots” got married, May 14,2022 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico ! The couple said, “We’re excited to be together and continue the journey,” Tika says of marrying Nick, with whom she shares a five-year-old daughter, Ella. “We both walked down the aisle with clear eyes, knowing that the wedding wasn’t just for the party. It was really for us.” Tika and Nicholas held their ceremony and reception at Chileno Bay Resorts & Residences, a location they chose so it was possible for all their friends and family to experience. “[We wanted everyone] to have a good time and celebrate this long, amazing journey that we’ve had,” Tika says. “I didn’t necessarily always want a destination wedding. It was just something that came to my mind. One of our first trips out of the country was Anguilla, and Mexico definitely has that beautiful, island vibe, so we were like why not do it in Cabo?” Tika told Brides.
“My favorite part of the planning process was just looking at all of the names of my friends and family who were coming,” Tika says. “Each one made me smile, so it made me even more excited to plan something beautiful. I wanted everybody to have a great time. I really had my friends, my family, my future husband in mind—it wasn’t just for me. It was a real celebration of all the people who have held us up on this journey to make it what it is. They’re really part of that thread. It was almost like a gift for them to really love where they are, love being together, and just overall having a really great time.”
