Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are celebrating three years of marriage today. The couple tied the knot in a beach wedding ceremony at Wakaya Club in Fiji on May 7, 2006. There were no guests in attendance as the couple said their vows in the sand. After the wedding, they honeymooned on the private island for nine days.
How They Met: Tori and Dean met on the set of “Mind Over Murder” in August of 2005. “It was love at first sight,” Tori says. “I fell hard.”
The Proposal: Dean proposed on Christmas Eve in 2005 while they were riding in a horse drawn carriage through the snow in Canada. A trail was lit for half a mile leading to a table for two surrounded by Christmas trees. Dean presented Tori with a diamond and sapphire engagement ring. “We’re so incredibly happy and in love,” the couple said at the time. “We cannot wait to start our lives together.”
Anniversaries: After being married for one year, Dean proposed to Tori again as they sat on a park bench overlooking a lake. He gave her an antique platinum ring with an Edwardian oval-shaped sapphire from Neil Lane. On their second anniversary, the couple had dinner at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills.
On Marriage: “We didn’t want to wait another day to get married,” Spelling says. “Having Dean there by my side, he’s my strength. He’s my rock.”
