Tika Sumpter & Nicholas James Are Married!

Tika Sumpter and Nicholas James

The couple first met on set of their show, The Haves and the Have Nots, and share a five-year-old daughter, Ella.

“I don’t know how much is going to change with the newlywed stamp. It’s going to be fun to call Nick my husband and hear him call me his wife,” Tika said in a statement to Brides.

“I think we just cemented what we already are, and all of our friends were witnesses to that. It’s a continuation of the journey, but I’m looking forward to doing what we’ve been doing, which is making sure that we have a solid foundation. Making sure we’re strong. It’s not a sprint, this journey, it’s definitely not a sprint.”

“We’re excited to be together and continue the journey…we both walked down the aisle with clear eyes, knowing that the wedding wasn’t just for the party. It was really for us.”

The ceremony and reception were held at Chileno Bay Resorts & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection, a location close to their home state of California.

“[We wanted everyone] to have a good time and celebrate this long, amazing journey that we’ve had. 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?”
