Tiffani Thiessen Weds Actor Brady Smith

Posted on

Former Beverly Hills, 90210 mean girl Tiffani Thiessen married actor-artist Brady Smith on Saturday at a private estate in Montecito, Calif., her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The bride, 31, wearing a French lace and tulle dress designed by Vera Wang, and the groom, 33, in a suit by Kenneth Cole, were surrounded by close friends and family as their daytime garden wedding turned into a French Provencal feast by evening.

Thiessen, who originally hails from Long Beach, Calif., and Smith, a Houston native, danced until late into the night and wrapped up the reception with a Perrier Jouet Champagne toast before heading to Santa Barbara’s Hotel Andalucia for their first evening as husband and wife.

A one-time model, Thiessen spent her teen years playing cheerleader Kelly Kapowski on NBC’s Saved by the Bell, which was followed by a few seasons as Valerie Malone on FOX’s 90210 and a lead role on the network’s short-lived 2002 series Fastlane. Her movies include 1993’s Son in Law and Woody Allen’s Hollywood Ending (2002).

In spring of 2003, she ended a year-and-a-half engagement to actor Richard Ruccolo (seen a few times this spring on Joey). “They just amicably split,” friend Ryan Reynolds told PEOPLE at the time.

Smith’s credits include TV appearances on ER, CSI: Miami, Judging Amy, Charmed and an episode two weeks ago of HBO’s new sitcom with Lisa Kudrow, The Comeback.
