Vanessa Williams' lavish, Egyptian-themed wedding to love Jim Skrip was a flawless affair.
Before exchanging vows with her businessman beau on July 4 in his hometown of Buffalo, New York, the former Ugly Betty star kicked off her wedding weekend with a "Welcome to Buffalo" bash for the couple's family and friends.
Held at Pearl Street Grill & Brewery, Williams and Skrip served their guests chicken wings, hot dogs with "slime sauce," stuffed banana peppers and fried fish that "all the out-of-towners might not have tried before," the actress tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Now this is the way to celebrate a birthday!
Vanessa Williams announced on a taping of The Queen Latifah Show that she's set to wed Jim Skrip of Buffalo, New York.
"Vanessa, I have been trying to have a conversation with you ladies and gents, but I am blinded by the light coming from that bling ring on your finger," Latifah says, joking with the actress.
"Oh sorry darling, Williams said, "I got engaged. I have had a lot of good things happen ... I turned 50 when we were in rehearsal on Broadway, I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It has been a lot of blessings."

She's doing what she does best: standing – pretty in pink – in skin-tight dress in the first few seconds of the new trailer for Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.
Playing a character named Ava, Kim Kardashian, 32, is taking a stab at a dramatic role in the upcoming movie, alongside stars like Vanessa Williams and one-time frenemy – and sister of ex-boyfriend Ray J – Brandy Norwood.
According to IMDB, the film, due March 29, is about a marriage counselor (played by Jurnee Smollett) whose life changes once she begins a romance with one of her clients. (And smoldering glances aside, no specific word yet what Kim's role in the film entails.)
Still, judging by the brief clip, the movie is full of steamy, melodramatic scenes with a hot cast that also includes Lance Gross and up-and-comer Eric West.
This won't be Kardashian's first time on the silver screen. She made her film debut in 2008's Disaster Movie, and returned to the big screen in 2009's Deep in the Valley.

According to his ex-wife, Rick Fox has a lot going for him on Dancing with the Stars.
"He's an athlete," says Vanessa Williams, who was married to the former NBA star from 1999 to 2004. "He's a competitor, for sure."
But that doesn't mean she's rooting for him to win. Williams, who describes herself as a "huge fan" of DWTS, says frontrunner Jennifer Grey has the best chance of taking home the crown.

Glenn Close was sheer evil perfection as the live-action version of Cruella De Vil in the 1996 remake of the Disney classic 101 Dalmatians. And while that creepy character sought to clothe herself in cuddly lap dogs, Sleeping Beauty's Maleficent takes it up a notch, cursing a baby to death by spinning wheel and turning into a dragon! She's so ominous, in fact, she may be the first Disney villain to get her own feature.
The Maleficent movie would, according to The Hollywood Reporter re-tell the 1959 fairy tale from the point of view of the self-proclaimed "Mistress of All Evil." Already rumored to be a front-runner for the delightfully devilish role: Angelina Jolie.
But wouldn't the equally gorgeous Catherine Zeta-Jones be able to bring to life her evil elegance? Her background is in theater and dancing after all. Another casting contender: Kim Cattrall, who has proven time after time she is equally bewitching and b----y!
