Alexi Ashe is married to Seth Meyers since 2013.
The two met in 2008 at the wedding of Seth Meyers 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 fought for so many years to find the “right one” and immediately he met Alexi at this wedding, he knew that she was the right one.
After a five-year courtship, they tied the bond of marriage in a star-studded ceremony on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, on September 1st, 2013.
Unfortunately, Alexi suffered food poisoning from a bad oyster during the rehearsal dinner and had to be taken to the hospital quickly. The brave bride left the council of the nurse on duty to cancel the wedding and courageously walked down the aisle to the altar in her beautiful dress made in the Carolina Herrera tradition. A rather rough start to what has become a beautiful union.
