Byers, 32, popped the question to Gealey, 31, in July. They announced their engagement in October.

The reception was held at a mansion on the island. The guest list was limited to family and close friends only. None of their Empire co-stars attended. The couple chowed down on steak and lobster, and they danced to hip hop, disco and reggae.

The happy couple started dating less than a year ago after meeting on the set of the Fox TV soap opera musical.

Congrats to Grace and Trai!

    Wait so none of the Empire co-stars attended...but they met while on Empire? Something just doesn't seem to be connecting for me. Congratulations, of course. Maybe those rumors about Trai thinking he is above Empire because of his scholarly acting background are true

    I doubt that. Many people invite only friends and close to their wedding. Not go workers or extended family! I think they wanted privacy!

    I agree. Close family and friends and intimate doesn't fit in with coworkers, imo. I like that it was small and simple, not an over the top extravaganza to waste $ on impressing and feeding the guests. It should be about the union, not the wedding.

    Hope not either...but when you're that age you know what you want and need...we hope lol

  • Mahogany

    Amen

  • Naptastical

    They prob wanted an intimate ceremony free of paparazzi and drama. If they invited their other co-stars the attention wouldn't be fully on their union between each other and God. That's what's it's all about in the end. I would've done the same thing if I was them.

    That was quick and I like that they kept it low-key.

  • Mel

    Congrats to them...u sure they had guests at that wedding ? All I see is the bride the groom and possibly the pastor . I hope it works out and the dopamine never fades

  • Queen B

    Congrats!!! Its weird seeing him as the husband of Rhonda and boo boo Kitty is pregnant with Hakeem's baby lol

  • more

    Exactly!

  • MookieFly

    True. Well it is interesting how both characters have been regulated to just bit parts and tomfoolery. I guess only time will tell

  • MookieFly

    That may be it. We'll see if they make any type of statement about it. Two stars, albeit not main stars, on the same show getting married to each is pretty big news.

  • MookieFly

    You have a point tho.

  • Allihave2say

    Right, because which wife would Terrance bring this week? He's a great actor but his personal life is confusing.

  • Allihave2say

    She's a bad mama jama. Think Taraji was having some jealousy?

  • Hugga Bunch

    Indeed, bc Trai is (in my humble opinion) the underdog of that show. The fact he is not over exposed and/or walking the tightrope of being typecast (hello Jussie and goodbye Bryshere) will work out in his favor, please believe. His career is just getting started, I believe the same for his lovely bride Grace.

  • Emily post

    Congratulations. She is drop dead gorgeous extremely under rated and definitely one of the most beautiful women on television and he is hot. Well thats a positive thing that came out of that show. Maybe they should invest in some good PR for positive blacks in Hollywood.

  • Li

    Beautiful couple. Please Empire: Do something with the Anika character.

  • Bonny

    Aw!!! I remember when I got married.????????

  • bemetoo

    They are.. Her character is gonna die

  • bemetoo

    After she gets cut from empire that's when they will start having problems.. Trai is a cancer sensitive and moody grace is a Leo who has to have everything focus on her

  • PM

    ..

  • kre

    Maybe he doesn't play for pay

  • jussaying

    Jussie waited a long time to be overexposed to be fair. I'm happy he is getting a lot of recognition because he's worked very hard for it and he is the most humble and sweetest human being ever.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I hope they last longer than Empire ever will.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Totally agree and his smile is everything, but chances of him becoming typecast are very strong. And if I'm not mistaken he has aspirations of succeeding in music in real life, I hope the show doesn't hinder that. Lee's overall agenda needs a helmet. Special as hell.

  • jussaying

    he does. he's released music in the past. if the Weeknd can Billy goat baaaa his way to the top, I don't see why Jussie can't either ??

  • Tine

    I was thinking the same thing. I'm starting to grow tired of hearing him sing in every episode, though I love his voice. I hope his musical career is successful outside of the show.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Touché lol anything is possible. Hell, Jaime Foxx proved he is indeed a triple threat, remember his attempt at music before the Jamie Foxx show lol (neither do I) but look at him now. So Jussie gonna be aight, he showed new depths on that one episode of Underground. Sure did.

  • jussaying

    I think if he just gets a role in a film with a more diverse cast (i.e. more white folk like), he'll be on his way. look at Michael B Jordan. his first big break that opened him to a widespread audience was when he was cast in Friday night lights. he credits that as something that made his career take off.
