Access Hollywood co-anchor and correspondent Tony Potts has tied the knot! Life & Style can exclusively reveal that the entertainment news anchor and his international TV beauty Shalini Vadhera said "I do" during a spiritual and private ceremony at Lake Shrine in the Pacific Palisades on July 24. The star-studded day was a Hollywood meets Bollywood affair as 120 of Tony and Shalini's closest friends and family witnessed the Indian-inspired ceremony. Tony, 47, looked every bit Shalini's Indian prince as he stood at the altar in a traditional Indian-style outfit, which included a silver and beaded long coat called a sherwani and silver and gold khusa shoes, to welcome his beautiful bride down the aisle. Shalini stunned in a one-of-a-kind Indian-inspired silk and organza gown with hundreds of hand-beaded pearls and crystals designed by Alia Khan. She wore over $100,000 in diamond and gold jewelry from Highglow.
"Shalini said to me a long time ago that 'every woman should be an Indian bride,' and now, after this absolutely gorgeous day, I understand why," Tony tells Life & Style.
The lovebirds, who have been together for two years, were initially set to marry next summer on the River Seine in Paris, but moved up their engagement and proposal so Tony's dad, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January, could attend the wedding as his son's best man.
"I feel very blessed to have her and all that she brings into my life," says Tony, who says he loves Shalini for her kindness and beauty on both the inside and out. "I feel love on a daily basis."
The event was planned by Dulari Amin of Imli Events.
