A Very Pregnant Tatyana Ali Weds EHarmony Boo Dr. Vaughn Raspberry
When she wasn’t busy preparing to sue folks for allegedly stealing her ideas (yes, we’re looking at you producers of The Real), Tatyana Ali was also planning a wedding. According to Us Weekly, the actress said “I do” to Dr. Vaughn Raspberry on Sunday in Beverly Hills. The 37-year-old met Raspberry through eHarmony in 2014, and they’re expecting their first child together. He is reportedly a Stanford University assistant English professor, and proposed to Ali by taking her on a hike in Yosemite, California, popping the question “in the most picturesque clearing.” Ali called the proposal, “so thoughtful and perfect.”
For the outdoor ceremony at the Four Seasons, Ali wore a custom Amsale gown with a sheer panel top and tied the knot in front of 120 of the couple’s family and friends. It was reportedly an event that celebrated her Caribbean roots (Afro-Panamanian and Indo-Trinidadian). In preparation for the nuptials, Ali and her sisters swapped the usual bachelorette party activities for some fun at Disneyland.
When speaking on Raspberry and how they met earlier this year with Entertainment Tonight, Ali explained how they were able to create a bond after meeting one another through online dating.
“It was my first time dating online. We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, of course, met.”
