Philadelphia 76ers forward Tobias Harris married Jasmine Winton this past Saturday. The wedding ceremony occurred at Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York. Harris and Winton first got engaged in 2020.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic caused delays for several weddings across the globe. When asked by People about his choice to have the wedding in the Empire State, Harris replied, “I grew up in Long Island.”
“So, to grow up and be a kid going to high school, everybody used to talk about Oheka Castle. I’ve only been here maybe one or two times, but I had the opportunity to grow up in Long Island, and also to get married, and get married in this area — it’s kind of like a full circle type of thing.”
Tobias Harris also recalled the time when he first met Jasmine Winton. “I was like, ‘I like this person, she’s cool.'” Though, he made it clear that it wasn’t love at first sight. They were just great friends.
