Now this is a story all about how little Ashley Banks tied the knot! Tatyana Ali, former star of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, is now a married woman after tying the knot this weekend with her sweetheart, Dr. Vaughn Rasberry. And guys, the intimate California nupitals sound GORGEOUS.
Ali exchanged Bel-Air for Beverly Hills for her wedding to Rasberry (whom she met on eHarmony!). The couple decided to keep the guest list short for their daytime wedding (so unfortunately it doesn't sound like any other Banks family members were attendance), but it certainly doesn't sound like they were short on style. According to People magazine, the wedding toted an "upscale Caribbean vibe" and took place at the Four Seasons hotel. The bride walked down the aisle wearing an off-white silk Amsale wedding dress with a fitted silhouette. And her bouquet sounds just as beautiful, as it was full of white peonies and lush garden roses. Meanwhile, Ali's bridesmaids also donned Amsale frocks for the occasion, wearing raspberry-hued tea-length bridesmaid dresses.
The reception had the 100 guests grooving to tropical house, hip-hop, and afro-punk music and also toted a totally unique wedding guest book. "We're doing a wishing tree," the actress explained ahead of the big day. "We saw it up in northern California. It'll have ribbons on it and people can put wishes on it. We did that because it's a tree that we can bring with us." So cool, right? Mind if we steal that idea, Ali?
So what's next up for the newlyweds? Parenthood! Ali announced her pregnancy back in April and she and her new hubby are both looking forward to the arrival of their little one. "I just want to see my baby," she said. "I can't wait to smell the baby! That's what I think about."
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. And we can't wait either for you two to become three!
