Wedding bells are ringing for Cassie and her fiancé, Alex Fine, who have jumped the broom in a private wedding in Malibu, California. The fitness training guru and R&B songstress officially tied the knot on Wednesday (Sept. 25) in a beautiful sunset-lit ceremony a month after they announced that they were engaged. Friday Night Lights director and actor Peter Berg broke the news after he uploaded a photo of the couple to his official Instagram account.
In the photo, Alex and Cassie gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes as they exchange vows at the altar with Berg officiating the ceremony in the background.
“By the power vested in me.... @alexfine44 [and] @cassie. Long may you ride!,” Berg wrote in the IG caption announcing the news.
"Love you Pete!,” Cassie commented on the post.
It’s the final cap on a whirlwind romantic summer romance between the two lovebirds, who made their relationship IG official in December 2018. The couple have shared every step of the relationship along the way leading up to this big milestone with intimate, heartstring-pulling posts. As such, here is a look back at the love story of the year through some of Cassie’s best hits. Be sure to grab your tissues!
The moment where it all began.
On December 29th, Cassie confirmed that she was dating Alex with a special Christmas post. She posted a photo of herself and the 26-year-old sharing a kiss. The news came months after the songstress publicly split from music mogul Diddy, who she had dated on-and-off for around 11 years.
Ringing in the new year, she dedicated her first IG post of 2019 to her man.
Several months later, the couple jointly announced the big news that they were expecting their first child together on June 12. The overjoyed parents-to-be shared the happy news on Instagram with equally moving tributes to their baby girl that had us all a puddle of emotions on the floor.
The moment that had hearts melting around the world. Immediately after Cassie announced that her and Alex were expecting a bundle of joy, the father-to-be professed his love and penned the sweetest letters to both his pregnant girlfriend and baby girl.
"I never thought my heart could grow bigger after meeting your mother... then I found out we were having you and I instantly felt a love that is so indescribable," he wrote. "I promise to be a man that you and your mother look up to and love. I will always listen and put the both of you first."
While they're probably excited and can't wait to become parents, Cassie and Alex took a moment to cherish the time they have together as just the two of them. Making the most of the summer, the two went on a safari adventure in July where they soaked up the sun and the fun with exotic animals.
In one shot, the couple is trekking through water on the back of an elephant. In another, the two are joyfully smiling posed in front of the elephant.
“Time is a thief. So I spend it with the people I love doing things that I will keep forever,” Alex commemorated the occasion.
Two months later, the singer-model and celebrity fitness trainer revealed that they were engaged. Alex proposed to Cassie in an elaborate cowboy-themed proposal at the Compton Cowboys ranch.
They both shared a video of the sweet moment of when Alex popped the big question. In the clip, he rode in on a horse before he got down on one knee to propose to Cassie underneath a dusky sunset.
"My favorite day ever! #MrsFine 8.24," Cassie captioned her post.
Mrs Fine❤️ 8.24 – forever,” Alex captioned his video. “This moment will always be so special to me,” he wrote alongside a photo of himself on one knee as Cassie looked down at him. “I get to marry my best friend in the whole world. How am I so lucky!”
It's the final moment we've all been waiting for the whole summer. Cassie and Alex joined their union in an intimate ceremony that will live on in hearts of fans everywhere. And long may their love ride, indeed.
BET sends its congratulations to the happy couple and wishes them and their new family a lifetime of joy!
