Pregnant Tatyana Ali Weds
Former The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Tatyana Ali is a married woman.
The 37-year-old actress, who played Ashley Banks on Will Smith’s hit TV show, exchanged vows with her fiance Dr. Vaughn Rasberry on Sunday afternoon.
For the wedding, Ali traded in Bel-Air for Beverly Hills, as the two tied the knot during a romantic ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel in front of around 120 guests.
“It was truly a magical and heartfelt ceremony,” Ali’s wedding planner Michael Russo told Entertainment Tonight. “Tatyana was glowing as she walked down the aisle.”
Russo, who also helped plan Kevin Jonas and Danielle Deleasa’s castle wedding in 2009, reveals the event included little Caribbean touches throughout to pay tribute to the bride’s roots.
Ali first announced her engagement in April, when she also revealed she is pregnant with their first child.
The actress subsequently told Entertainment Tonight they had to change their wedding plans slightly after learning of their impending parenthood.
“Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely,” Ali said at the time. “We want our ceremony to really celebrate our newest blessing!”
Ali and her beau have been together for nearly two years, after first hooking up on a dating website.
“Vaughn and I met on eHarmony!” she revealed. “It was my first time dating online. We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, of course, met.”
She also shared details of his proposal, adding, “He took me on a 45-minute hike in the Redwoods (in California), which he knows I absolutely love, and proposed in the most picturesque clearing. Just the two of us. It was so thoughtful and perfect.”
