Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon Wedding Pictures

The latest issue of People has the exclusive Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon wedding pictures.

Mariah, 38, and Nick, 27, married during an April 30 sunset ceremony at her Bahamian estate.

“We really do feel we are soulmates,” Mariah says. “I never felt a love like this was in the cards for me.”

Nick adds: “She is beautiful on the outside and 10 times as beautiful on the inside.”

Mariah’s not so impromptu wedding details

Private jets from NYC arrive at Governors Harbour Airport in the Bahamas all the time. But two that landed on the afternoon of April 29 were carrying some extra-special cargo. Pop diva Mariah Carey, 38, and actor Nick Cannon, 27, rode on one – and about 24 wedding guests were passengers on the other!

“They all walked off carrying cups of champagne,” an airport waitress reveals. While Mariah and her man headed straight to her $5 million home on Windermere Island, their guests headed to the island’s posh Pineapple Fields hotel. “Everyone was in party mode,” the witness says. For good reason. At noon the next day, Mariah and Nick were married by Bishop Clifford Petty of the National Church of God on the patio of her mansion overlooking the Atlantic.

While Nick took care of the bling, Mariah steered the top-secret wedding plans. “Mariah‘s assistant arrived on Eleuthera Island, just off the coast of Windermere, on April 27 to start making arrangements,” says the airport waitress. “The next day, a commercial jet arrived from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., carrying two huge tanks of live Maine lobsters.”

Her security team and staff also flew in to get the home ready for their notoriously high-maintenance boss. Among their duties: laying out silk robes, designer sheets and towels, blackout curtains for her bedroom and vases filled with orchids. (When she stays at hotels, bright lightbulbs are usually replaced with softer, more flattering ones, per her orders, says the Mariah insider.)

“Whenever Mariah travels, they set up for her beforehand,” the Mariah insider explains. “And it’s no joke – if anything she needs or wants is missing, she’ll be upset.”

The morning of Mariah’s big day, florist Benjamin White was spotted greeting a private jet filled with flowers. “Hurry up,” he told handlers anxiously. “I don’t have much time to play with.”

Mariah herself oversaw the delivery of her wedding cake – flying it down with her on the private jet. “It was on the seat next to her,” a source confirms. “She wouldn’t let anyone come near it or touch it.

But all the meticulous planning paid off. “She was one happy, happy lady on her wedding day,” says a witness at the ceremony. Less thrilled, however, were Nick’s relatives – who found out about the nuptials through media reports. “They’re upset they weren’t invited and didn’t even know about the wedding,” says an insider close to the newlyweds. “They were shocked they had to hear about it secondhand.”

Still, they’re trying to be as supportive as possible. Nick’s brother, Gabriel, said he sent the groom well wishes, saying, “I love him very much.”

    I’ve just seen Mariah Carey on The View and last week on Oprah. Truth be told she’s faded. He voice isn’t the instrument it use to be. She’s still good looking but her wardrobe choices suck badly. How she’s dressing is tragic. She’s gained some weight and it looks like she’s still trying to pass herself off as 29. And what’s up with her not inviting the grooms family to his own wedding?? I’m guessing Mimi doesn’t like sharing his attention. But I got to say, Cannon seems like a nice guy and that he cares about her. Money aside, she’s the lucky one.
