For three years, Yandee and Mendeeces' relationship has grown on Love & Hip Hop New York. Now, we get to share in the couple's special day. The VH1 synopsis of the live episode reads: We’ve been a part of their relationship for years as Yandy and Mendeecees became parents, handled family drama, and overcame Mendeecees’ incarceration and subsequent conditional release. Now we get to be a part of their big day as Love & Hip Hop’s favorite couple FINALLY joins hands in holy matrimony – LIVE! This is a big, red carpet event, filmed in Brooklyn, New York and the hosts for the evening include Nina Parker, Big Tigger, and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Stevie J. With all the legal trouble surrounding the couple, they could use a beautiful day like today. TMZ previously reported on Mendeeces' problems with the law, stating in April 2015 that Mendeeces pleaded guilty in a drug-trafficking ring. TMZ reported: Harris struck a plea deal in the case, and will now face 5 to 40 years in the federal pen, and/or a fine of $5 million. The feds nailed him for a drug trafficking operation that shipped cocaine and heroin to Rochester for 7 years. Harris will remain free on bail until his sentencing in August. As for how the couple's relationship is doing through all this, they're just focusing on parenthood and their wedding.
