NBA star Tobias Harris and Jasmine Winton tied the knot Saturday (Aug. 6) at a lovely wedding ceremony at Oheka Castle in Huntington, N.Y., PEOPLE reports.
“Today I get to marry my best friend!!!!” the Philadelphia 76ers forward, 30, shared with the world via tweeted before the nuptials.
Engaged since 2020, the newlyweds didn’t rush things. They took their time to build a deep connection that got stronger over time. Winton, 31, told PEOPLE that there wasn’t a specific moment when she just knew that Harris was the right man for her.
“But I think through our relationship, there were just all these instances where you could just see how nurturing he was or how thoughtful he was or is with just planning a dinner date or picking up my favorite snack at the store. Just like all of these little things that just really showed how thoughtful and caring he was that made our love grow," she said.
The couple met on a blind date when he played for the Detroit Pistons from 2016-2018, but it wasn’t love at first sight for either of them.
“Over time, I just knew and saw this calmness to her that like allowed me to understand like where she came from, who she is. I grew up very sheltered my whole life. So when I met her, we kind of kicked it and we had a good vibe to just our relationship. She just opened my eyes up to perspectives on understanding life and what people come from," Harris stated.
