Tatyana Ali is engaged! I haven’t seen much of her in the news lately but word on the street is that the 37yr old is planning a wedding as well as expecting her first child.
Her fiance is Dr. Vaughn Rasberry is an assistant professor at the University of Chicago. Yahoo news caught up with actress and she dished on her pending nuptials.
“Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely,” the bride-to-be explains. “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!”
If Russo’s name sounds familiar it’s because he’s planned a number of celebrity weddings, including Dancing With the Stars pro Witney Carson’s wedding to Carson McAllister. He’s also worked with Kevin Jonas and Danielle Deleasa, Joey Fatone and Kelly Baldwin and Beverley Mitchell and Michael Cameron.
That being said, we have no doubt the adorable duo’s ceremony will be anything but fabulous!
The cute couple’s love story began a year and a half ago, when Ali decided to start online dating.
“Vaughn and I met on eHarmony!” she reveals. “It was my first time dating online. We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, of course, met.”
And Ali can’t stop herself from gushing about Rasberry’s “perfect” proposal.
“He took me on a 45-minute hike in the Redwoods [in Yosemite, California], which he knows I absolutely love,” Ali shares. “And proposed in the most picturesque clearing. Just the two of us. It was so thoughtful and perfect. We’re best friends.”
Congrats to them both!
