Tatyana Ali married Dr. Vaughn Rasberry during a small ceremony in Beverly Hills, California, on Sunday, outlets reported. The duo met on the dating website eHarmony in 2014 and are expecting their first child.
Tatyana Ali has married her boyfriend of two years, Dr Vaughn Rasberry.
The couple tied the knot in front of 120 people on Sunday at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, according to Entertainment Tonight.
The 37-year-old actress – who is best known for playing Ashley Banks on the NBC sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in the 1990s – is pregnant with Rasberry’s child.
Ali wore a custom-made Amsale gown and the ceremony also included ‘Caribbean touches to pay tribute to her roots.’
‘It was truly a magical and heartfelt ceremony,’ Michael Russo, Ali’s wedding planner, told ET. ‘Tatyana was glowing as she walked down the aisle.’
ET broke the news of their engagement and pregnancy back in April. The two met through online dating.
‘Vaughn and I met on eHarmony!’ Ali told the site. ‘It was my first time dating online. We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, of course, met.
‘Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely.
‘We want our ceremony to really celebrate our newest blessing! Plus, I have the best wedding planner, Michael Russo. He’s making everything so fun and stress free!’
Ali got her start on the TV series Star Search and in 1990 was cast opposite Will Smith on the sitcom The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.
On the show, she was able to use her vocal talents as she was a trained singer.
When the series ended she started her music career more formally and turned out the hit Daydreamin’ in 1998. She then studied at Harvard University and backed Barack Obama during his presidential run.
For six years she dated Jonathan Brandis. But in March she became engaged to Rasberry, a professor at Stanford University.
In July 2016, Ali sued Warner Bros claiming that the company used her idea for the show The Real after she pitched the concept in December 2012..
