America Ferrera wed longtime boyfriend Ryan Piers Williams on Monday at the Chappaqua, New York home of her former co-star, Vanessa Williams. Sources claim the wedding was, “an intimate setting amongst close friends and family.” That doesn’t mean it wasn’t a star-studded event though. Other Hollywood attendees include Blake Lively and Amber Tamblyn (her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars), along with her Ugly Betty co-stars: Rebecca Romijn, Mark Indelicato and Judith Light — who officiated the wedding (fun!).
There were certainly no Ugly Betty outfits for her on the big day. The former Ugly Betty star wore an Amsale’s Christos dress and Fred Leighton earrings. The couple had been living together since 2007 and share a golden retriever named Buddy, whom they refer to as “our baby.” Too cute. The engagement was announced in June 2010 after Ryan proposed with a 4-carat round cut diamond worth about $70,000. Way to go Ryan — go big or go home!
These two lovebirds met long before America became the lovable-but-quirky fashion assistant on ABC’s Ugly Betty which ended its four season run back in April 2010. The pair actually met when Ryan cast America in a film he was doing while he was a student at the University of Southern California. Let this be a lesson to all current college students — sometimes doing your homework can indeed pay off. Congratulations to the happy couple and here’s to a lifetime of love and happiness! At long last, Betty has found her prince charming.
