Philadelphia 76ers forward Tobias Harris and his longtime love Jasmine Winton are officially married!
The 30-year-old basketball star and Winton said "yes, I do" at Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York on Saturday.
Friends and family of the longtime couple got together to celebrate with the newlyweds, who have been engaged since 2020. "The site is absolutely stunning," Winton, 31, tells PEOPLE about their venue. "The fountains and the gardens, it's really stunning." The newlyweds chose Oheka Castle for its prime location between their two families and the venue's popular reputation in the NBA player's hometown.

"I grew up in Long Island, New York," says Harris. “Growing up and being a kid going to high school, everyone was talking about Oheka Castle. I may only have been here once or twice, but when I had the opportunity to grow up in Long Island, and also to get married, and to get married in this area – it's kind of come full circle.”

That kind of long game also reflects the couple's relationship, which was more of a slow burn. Harris and Winton both say it wasn't love at first sight for either of them, but rather a deep connection that grew over time.
"I was like, 'I like this person, she's cool,'" Harris says when they first met. "But over time I just knew and saw that calmness for her that allowed me to understand where she came from, who she is. I grew up very sheltered my whole life. When I met her, we kind of kicked it and we had a good vibe in our relationship. She just opened my eyes to perspectives on how to understand life and where people come from.”

Winton says for her, "I don't think there was a specific moment" when she knew Harris was the one, "but I think in our relationship there were just all these instances where you could just see how." caring he was or how thoughtful he was or is while planning dinner or picking up my favorite snack from the store. Just like all those little things that really showed how thoughtful and caring he was that made our love grow.
And they rattled off their relationship at the wedding all night, with little details surrounding the venue.
"We have these little cocktail napkins with all these facts on them," says Winton. "And one of the facts is, 'Tobias said I love you after only dating for a month.' And then it was like, 'Of course Jasmine hung up,' because that's a true story."

Along with having friends and family at the wedding — including some NBA stars like DeAndre Jordan and Georges Niang — the couple had a few top priorities.
"We're foodies," says Harris. “We also love having great spirits. For example, go out, have a nice cocktail, a glass of wine - food is so important to us. That's why we wanted our guests to enjoy a great meal at dinner. "

Her only regret is that her adorable dog, Ivy, wasn't on the guest list - but they honored her with a cocktail in her name.
“Ivy is still young. She's still jumping. The last thing I want is for her to jump on Jasmine's dress," says Harris. "I said, 'I want to take you, Ivy, but I can't take you right now. We'll throw you a party when we get back.' "

And after going through the entire wedding process, Harris has a few more vows to make.
"The next time I get someone's wedding invitation, I'll respond in the same hour I got it because I tracked down some of these guys..." he says of the yes or no from his NBA buddies. "But I get what I said to Jasmine, to be honest, that was me before I planned a wedding."
