The bride of Bel-Air! Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum Tatyana Ali married Stanford professor Dr. Vaughn Rasberry in Beverly Hills on Sunday, July 17 — and some of her famous, former costars were there to witness the gorgeous affair.
Wedding planner Michael Russo shared some new details with The Knot on Monday, July 18, including a photo of the beautiful bride with her ‘90s colleagues. Close to 120 guests attended Ali’s wedding at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills, including Ali’s on-screen sibling Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks) and his wife, Angela Unkrich.
Karyn Parsons, who played Ali’s ditzy, on-screen big sister, Hilary Banks, joined the festivities along with Joseph Marcell, who portrayed the family’s stiff-but-beloved butler, Geoffrey.
Ali, who’s currently expecting a baby, looked resplendent in an off-white, silk gown by Amsale. The bride recently opened up to The Knot in an exclusive interview about planning her wedding during her pregnancy, which she said she was fully embracing at the time.
“For me, I’m not interested in hiding the fact that I’m pregnant—I want to celebrate it,” Ali shared. “We’re both walking down the aisle! Initially, when I found out I was expecting, I thought, ‘Oh my goodness, this throws a wrench in the plans—this is going to make things more difficult and make things harder.’ But no, not at all. It’s made things very clear cut. There’s a stress level that I can’t afford to go to and it’s made things go more smoothly because they have to.”
While the planning process is oftentimes stressful for many brides, Ali praised Russo for making the collaboration manageable and exciting. “It’s been absolutely incredible. We’re having so much fun doing it,” the actress told The Knot at the time. “Even in the short amount of planning time we’ve had, we’re totally on the same page. He just knows my style and he can anticipate everything—I hadn’t even told him what I wanted my colors or flowers to be, but he totally anticipated it. I was like, ‘That’s it! How did you know?’ He has such great taste, which makes it so fun.”
Ali and Rasberry got engaged this past January. “We were in northern California and went on a hike in a beautiful redwood park early in the morning,” the actress told us of the proposal. “The trail opened up to this meadow, and it ended up just being us on this beautiful plateau. That’s when he proposed—it was amazing!”
