In 2006, Ebony magazine covered the couple's glamorous celebrity "fairytale wedding" in the Turks & Caicos. Click here to see pictures from the wedding reception. Watch LisaRaye speak about her husband and attend an event as the first lady of Turks & Caicos for the Michael and LisaRaye Misick foundation. LisaRaye, who was raised on the South Side of Chicago has been described as a "ghetto princess" and "urban Grace Kelly".
It is material straight from the pages of fairy tales and news headlines: LisaRaye McCoy, the young, single and sexy Hollywood actress meets the Honorable Michael Misick, the young, single and handsome chief minister (comparable to a president) of the exclusive islands of Turks and Caicos, a developing country in the heart of the Caribbean. They marry after a whirlwind courtship that comes complete with romantic dinners against the backdrop of brilliant sunsets, strolls on the beach under a blanket of stars--and an ice cube-sized diamond wedding ring.
Life is good. LisaRaye married her sweetheart of nearly a year at an upscale resort last April at an exclusive resort on Providenciales, one of country's 40 islands (10 are inhabited). In a lavish ceremony attended by about 300 well-wishers, the stunning bride wore a satin, ivory gown (designed by Amsale), with an embroidered bodice of hand-sewn Swarovski Crystals and beads, and featured a 30-foot-long train. The setting also was gorgeous, situated against the backdrop of powder-white sandy beaches of turquoise waters lapping at the shore.
Not bad for a 39-year-old homegirl from Chicago's South Side. "Fairy tales do come true," LisaRaye says of her marriage. Misick and the sultry actress recently took a break from their hectic travel and work schedules to talk to Ebony about their plans for the future. While nursing a broken foot, the new Mrs. Misick is comfortably ensconced in the cloistered elegance of her sprawling five-bedroom, two-story, beachfront home with a lap pool. She is mobile and the injury goes undetected during the photo session. Between sets, she spoke openly about life as a newlywed. Yes! She will become McCoy-Misick. source
