Just last week, actress Raven-Symoné announced that she had married her girlfriend, Miranda Pearman-Maday. Now, she's giving fans a look behind the curtain at the nuptials.

On Wednesday (June 24), Symoné spoke with People about the ceremony that took place on June 16 in the garden of  Grey's Anatomy star Debbie Allen. "Despite being someone who has kept my personal life private, I decided to share this moment because it’s one of the biggest and happiest of my life," she said.

Allen told the magazine that she wanted to make sure that the day was special for her friends, so she went out of her way to convince Symoné to let the day have some special touches. "She was trying to keep it so simple and I said, ‘Come on, you have to have something,' " she said. "She loves my oysters I make for her. I made her some lobster pasta and got her a triple berry cake from Sweet Lady Jane. You only get married once ... it was a joy to do that for her.”

Maday said that the day was "perfect," and that it served as the perfect gateway to the couple's future together. "It was joyful, intimate, filled with laughter, great food, music and a last-minute peanut butter delivery for me -- all things I know my future with Raven will hold," she said. "I feel so grateful to be doing life with my love."

As for Symoné, she said that she was happy that she not only got married, but got to do it in such a collaborative way with her partner. "Miranda makes me feel confident and empowered in an entirely new way. We planned our ceremony together and it was a true reflection of our love and partnership," she said.
