Alexi Ashe has been married to Seth Meyers since 2013.
The two met in 2008 at the wedding of Seth Meyer’s colleague on Saturday Night Live. Alexi attended as a guest of her sister who is the set designer for Saturday Night Live.
According to Meyers, it was love at first sight. He had struggled for so many years trying to find the “right one” and immediately he met Alexi at that wedding, he knew she was the one.
After a five-year courtship, they tied the knot in a star-studded ceremony on September 01, 2013, on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
Unfortunately, Alexi suffered food poisoning from a bad oyster during their rehearsal dinner and had to be rushed to the hospital. The brave bride ditched the counsel of the nurse on duty to cancel the wedding and she courageously walked down the aisle in her beautiful custom Carolina Herrera gown. Quite a rough start to what has blossomed into a beautiful union.
Iconic country musician Brad Paisley was present at the wedding and was in hand to sing for the couple’s first dance.
Alexi Ashe named her first child “Ashe Meyer” to ensure that he bears the names of both of his parents’ families. Such a brilliant compromise!
