    Jason Priestley Weds

    Jason Priestley is a married man. Again.

    The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Naomi Lowde over the weekend on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

    The twosome have been together for several years and got engaged last May.

    It was the second trip down the aisle for Priestley, whose previous marriage to makeup artist Ashlee Peterson lasted less than a year.

    Apparently, Priestley is drawn to cosmetics queens--the English-born Lowde is also a makeup artist.

    Priestley has endured some tough times since the heady days of 90210.

    In 2002, Lowde helped nurse the former teen idol back to health after he was in a serious head-on car crash during a warmup lap at the Indy Racing Infiniti Pro Series at Kentucky Speedway.

    The near-fatal crash left Priestley with a concussion, broken back, fractured feet, lacerated nose and bruised eye socket, but he went on to make a full recovery.

    "He's a medical miracle," Lowde said at the time. "He could have died from any one of his injuries."

    In 1999, Priestley was arrested for drunken driving after he crashed his Porsche into some trash cans, a parked car and a power pole in the Hollywood Hills, three days after separating from Peterson. He was sentenced to five days in a work-release program and three months in rehab.

    Since leaving the role of clean-cut Brandon Walsh behind, Priestley appeared in a string of forgettable movies. He also had a recurring role on the canceled Tru Calling.

    Up ahead, Priestley will be seen in the comedy Hot Tamale, starring Randy Spelling, brother of Priestley's 90210 costar Tori Spelling. He'll also be seen in the TV movie, Love Monkey.

    Priestley's not the only small-screen star--or Canadian-born actor--to swap vows recently.

    Former Growing Pains dad and fellow Canuck Alan Thicke married his longtime girlfriend, model Tanya Callau, 30, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on May 7.

    It was the third marriage for Thicke and the first for Callau.
