Tichina Arnold, best known for her role in Fox sitcom “Martin,” married Rico Hines in Hawaii over the weekend as she kept her Twitter followers entertained with wedding pictures and updates of the ceremony.

Arnold, 43, posting pictures of herself and the bridal party at the marriage ceremony that took place in Honolulu on Saturday. The wedding was attended by about 70 guests and held at the Oasis Oceanfront Estate. She announced her engagement in March.

She also starred in TV sitcom “Everybody Hates Chris” and is currently one of the lead characters in “Happily Divorced” alongside Fran Drescher. The actress announced her engagement to Hines, a college basketball coach, in March this year.

“Rico and I enjoyed our fist vacation in Hawaii so we knew that we wanted to legalize our love here,” she told lifestyle website ESSENCE. “However, we chose Honolulu instead of the romantic island of Maui as we knew our guests would have so many more entertaining options on this festive island.”

Arnold was previously married to former heavyweight boxer Lamon Brewster from 1992 to 1995. She also has a daughter, 8-year-old Alijah Kai, from a relationship with music producer Carvin Haggins.

Celebrity wedding planner extraordinaire Diann Valentine was on hand to help the glowing couple execute their dream wedding without a hitch. Despite the busy wedding prep, Arnold found time to tweet a cute photo of her and Valentine prior to the festivities. “My wedding planner @diannvalentine looking fab,” the actress wrote.
