As expected, Chance the Rapper tied the knot on Saturday, taking his vows at a waterfront resort in California.

Celebrity sites confirm that the Chicago native, 25, married his longtime love Kirsten Corley at the Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach.

The guests included Chance’s friend and musical collaborator Kanye West and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, People reports. Also bearing witness, according to E! News, was comedian Dave Chappelle.

“The bride, Kirsten, wore a strapless white dress and Chance wore a white tux with a black bow tie,” an eyewitness told E! A photo of the couple kissing, surrounded by white roses, was posted on the Instagram gossip site The Shade Room. The groom went without his trademark baseball cap.

Monday morning, the rapper himself posted formal photos of the newlyweds as well as himself with four guys he called “the men who mentored me”: West, Chappelle, father Ken Bennett and gospel singer Kirk Franklin.

Chance had announced the wedding on Wednesday with a Twitter thread recounting the sweet story of the first time he saw Corley, when he was 9.

The couple got engaged in July and share a daughter together named Kensli.
