Ferguson, 37, and Mikita, 27, got engaged last year on a vacation to Mexico after being together nearly two years. Tony Kushner, acclaimed playwright and screenwriter, officiated Saturday’s ceremony. Some of the guests in attendance included Ferguson’s Modern Family costar Julie Bowen, as well as Nigel Lythgoe, Cat Deeley, and Mary Murphy from So You Think You Can Dance, where Ferguson was a guest judge.
Bowen said the event was the “#bestweddingever,” while Lythgoe tweeted, “I think the service at Justin and Jesse’s wedding was so beautiful honest. It was so emotionally that when we weren’t laughing we were crying.”
Rather than wedding gifts (which, let’s face it, are sometimes lame anyway), Ferguson and Mikita asked their guests to donate to their marriage equality charity Tie the Knot to help same-sex couples win equal rights in other states. The charity also has a bow tie shop, and bow ties are cool.
