The wedding took place at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California, according to Us Weekly. However, the couple first had a civil ceremony in Chicago in December 2018, which was when they legally married.
Chance and Kirsten, 25, first met when they were both 9 years old and reconnected several years later. On Wednesday, March 6, he took to Twitter to tell the story of their very first encounter.

“In the year 2003, my mom used to work as a real estate agent at a black owned franchise called Re/Max Exclusive Properties. One night, she took my dad and my brother [rapper Taylor Bennett] and I to one of her office parties to get better acquainted with her co-workers,” he began. “I was 9 years old at the time so I was prolly oblivious to what was going on and had no say in how I spent my evenings, anyway.”
“That being said I was probably playing a gameboy in a corner or eating candy, initially unimpressed by my surroundings. But THEN … out of nowhere, we were all told to make room, to spread out and make a circle for a presentation. This is where my memory comes back in a photographic manner,” he continued. “We were instructed to make way for an exclusive performance by DESTINY’S CHILD!!”
Chance then revealed that instead of the famous girl group appearing, Kirsten, who channeled Kelly Rowland, and two other girls showed up on stage and performed “Independent Women, Pt. 1.”
“Now I’m locking eyes with the prettiest girl I ever seen in my almost-a-decade of life on earth,” the “All We Got” rapper recounted. “I really shouldn’t even say locked eyes cause really, I was just staring at her; as she and her girls were conquering this choreography and mastering the art of lip-synching in a way even the most professional performers have yet to accomplish.”
“I knew I was gonna marry that girl. And I ain’t wanna jump the gun. So I shook my head with anxiety, moved to the back of the crowd and never even introduced myself,” Chance recalled. “16 years later it’s happening. This wknd is the time, and the place is my wedding. I’m gonna dance with my wife because this is my destiny.”
After recalling their first meeting in a series of tweets, Chance then explained he “never saw her again until SXSW 2012 in Austin,” which is when they finally connected the dots. Three years after that, they welcomed their now 3-year-old daughter, Kensli Bennett. We’re not crying, you are!
