‘Vampire Diaries’ Star Kat Graham Secretly Marries After 4 Months Dating!
October 21, 2023
Kat Graham has tied the knot with her best friend and business partner, Bryant Wood, after a whirlwind romance of just four months. The couple began dating earlier this year and exchanged vows in an intimate legal ceremony.
News of her wedding to Wood comes a few months after she revealed that her relationship with her former fiancé, Darren Genet, had hit the rocks. The formerly engaged couple, who reportedly started dating in 2017, kept their relationship private as they only shared a handful of pictures.
Kat Graham Is Secretly Married To Busines Partner Bryant Wood
34-year-old “Vampire Diaries” star Kat Graham got hitched to her longtime buddy and business partner in a legal ceremony held in Los Angeles. The couple reportedly wore matching white outfits and had a friend consummate their wedding vows.
Graham and Wood have been best friends for about five years since becoming partners for their wellness company, Modern Nirvana, along with Frank Elaridi. The pair revved things up in June when they confirmed that they’d started dating.
According to People magazine, the “Heatwave” actress and her husband, who is a master breathwork instructor and motivational coach, have plans to hold a more grand ceremony next year, but the date hasn’t been fixed.
They Are Business Partners Turned Married Couple
In 2022, the “Sassy” singer teamed up with her newlywed husband, Wood, and Frank Elaridi to launch a new wellness brand called Modern Nirvana. The brand aims to provide people with the tools and resources they need to live a more balanced and fulfilling life.
The pair hardly share photos of themselves and what they’ve been up to, but Wood took to Instagram at the time to share a photo about their budding enterprise.
“Big next couple months for @modern.nirvana,” he captioned the photo with Graham in it. “I am grateful to have such beautiful and powerful friends that I get to create a better world with!”
Kat Graham Was Previously Engaged To Darren Genet
Her wedding to Wood comes after she and her ex-fiancé, Darren Genet, announced their split just one year after getting engaged. Graham, known for her role as Bonnie Bennett in the hit supernatural TV series, and Genet, a talented director and producer, seemed like a perfect match as they started dating in 2017.
A source close to the then-couple told People that Genet proposed to the actress during a vacation in Mexico for his birthday last year, with the source noting that she was “madly in love and couldn’t be happier.”
Hey everyone. After many years together, Darren and I have chosen to no longer be together. The engagement ended a few months ago. He’s a great guy and we wish each other nothing but the most happy and beautiful life. ❤️
In July, she took to her X account to reveal that they had split, as their “engagement ended a few months ago.”
“Hey everyone. After many years together, Darren and I have chosen to no longer be together. The engagement ended a few months ago. He’s a great guy, and we wish each other nothing but the most happy and beautiful life,” she tweeted.
At the time, fans were left shocked and saddened at the news of Graham and Genet’s separation, with a handful of them taking to social media to express their disbelief and sadness.
Kat Graham & Darren Genet Have A Connection To ‘The Vampire Diaries’
Graham became famous for her role as a witch, Bonnie Bennet, in “The Vampire Diaries.” On the other hand, her ex-partner, Genet, directed several episodes of the CW show. However, despite their connection to “TVD,” the former couple clarified at the time that they didn’t meet while on the show.
Graham has also appeared in other successful film projects, such as “All Eyez on Me,” in which she played Hollywood star Jada Pinkett Smith, and the dance movie “Honey 2.”
The actress also starred in a Netflix romantic comedy film titled “Love in the Villa,” which featured “The Umbrella Academy” actor Tom Hopper. She previously appeared in a Netflix Christmas movie titled “Operation Christmas Drop.”
