Well, if the old, cliched saying, 'the third time's the charm' is true, talk show host Montel Williams latest marriage just might last longer than his first two. Besides, he has (that often times inaccurate) psychic Sylvia 'I See Dead People' Brown to put a bug in his ear if it's not.

Williams and his fiancĂ©e, Tara Fowler, wed before an intimate gathering of friends and family Saturday afternoon on a beach in Bermuda, PEOPLE has learned exclusively. "I am ecstatic! Unbelievable," Montel told PEOPLE immediately following the ceremony. The laid-back seaside wedding also included a V.I.P. ring-bearer: The couple’s 1-year-old black toy poodle, Mr. Max, wearing a harness with a ring-pillow on his back. Among the 60 guests were both the bride’s and groom’s parents and siblings. And Williams’ 18-year-old daughter Maressa (from his first marriage) served as one of Fowler’s bridesmaids.

Williams, 51, proposed to Fowler, 36, a former American Airlines flight attendant, on July 12, 2006, in front of both of their families at Manhattan’s Tavern on the Green restaurant. “A key to any successful marriage is that you’ve got to have friends, you’ve got to have family to support that union,” Williams told PEOPLE the night before the wedding. “And from day one we’ve had family and friends together that support this.”

On Friday night, the couple treated all of their guests to a cruise around the island on a 100-ft. yacht. “Instead of it just being ‘our day,’ we wanted everyone to enjoy it,” the new bride told PEOPLE that night. Her wish certainly came true, as guests gathered on the beach for a cocktail hour before the ceremony even started. “We just wanted it to be really laid-back, and fun! Nothing stuffy.”

This is the third marriage for Williams, who has four children – two from each of his previous marriages. It is the first for Fowler.

Love the article. Carmen & Allister Simmons, of The Bridal Suite Bermuda, Wedding Planners, had the pleasure of arranging the Montel Williams and Tara Fowler wedding at Tuckers Point in Bermuda on October 6th 2007. Many months of preparation and planning were well worth the experience with the added pleasure of meeting two new friends. Arranging and assisting with their plans for their special day was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed the opportunity to make their day a very special and memorable event for Montel and Tara and their family and friends. Much luck and best wishes to both of them.
