Newlywed Bliss: Tichina gets down with her hubby Rico!

Triple B wishes sincere congratulations to veteran actress Tichina Arnold (who many of you affectionately still refer to as Pam from her Martin days) on her recent nuptials! Who did she marry? St. John’s University assistant basketball coach Rico Hines. Tichina, 43, was happily wed at Honolulu’s Oasis Oceanfront Estate, with reportedly 70 guests in attendance. D-Nice flew in for one day to deejay the event and celebrity wedding planner Diann Valentine orchestrated the intimate wedding weekend. Her loving bridal party included Sidra Smith — twin sister of actress Tasha Smith.

Tichina and Rico had a gorgeous Hawaiian backdrop during their destination wedding.

The Happily Divorced screentress chose to say I Do in a beautiful beachfront ceremony. The Oasis Oceanfront Estate in Honolulu is certainly not shabby either. The property was once home to John Travolta. A few standout features of this estate include private beach access, a mosaic tiled pool and Koa floors throughout the two-levels. This is Tichina’s second marriage; she also has an 8 year-old daughter named Alijah Kai. Loving that Tichina is repping for the brides who are 40+. Sidebar, she’s also a fellow Queens, New York native so she gets cool points on GP…

Join Triple B is wishing Tichina and Rico a long and happy marriage!

We must also send heartfelt CONGRATS to Philadelphia 76ers forward Thaddeus Young who wed his longtime sweetheart, Shekinah Beckett this weekend as well. Lots of Black Bridal Bliss in the air!
