Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who portrays the role of Mitchell Pritchett on ABC’s “Modern Family” got married to his longtime love, lawyer Justin Mikita, in New York on Saturday night.
The wedding, according to the Daily Mail, had a vintage theme and took place in a venue featuring exposed brick walls and 14-foot ceilings. The ceremony was attended by more than 200 guests, including co-stars Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, and Eric Stonestreet, who plays Ferguson’s on-screen husband on the popular sitcom.
Following the event, Stonestreet tweeted: “Congratulations @jessetyler and @JustinMikita on ur nuptials! As my gift to u, I'm going on your honeymoon with u. Just the 3 of us:) k?”
Other celebrity guests who attended the event included Jerry O'Connell, Zachary Quinto, Isaac Mizrahi, Nigel Barker, Mary Murphy and Padma Lakshmi.
Ferguson, 37, proposed to Mikita, 27, while vacationing in Mexico last September after dating the lawyer for almost two years.
Soon after their wedding ceremony, the couple took to their respective Twitter accounts to express their happiness.
“Never been happier. XO Goodnight!” Ferguson wrote, and Mikita followed it up with a message that read, “Husband. Not partner. We’ve worked hard to call each other husband… so let’s start using it. K thanks.”
Mikita and Ferguson co-founded 'Tie The Knot', a company that designs and sells bow ties, and donates the sales proceeds to organizations that support equal marriage rights.
On their decision to have their wedding in New York, Ferguson said on "The View" in June that they wanted to get married where it was legal. "It wasn't legal in California up until yesterday," he said on June 27, according to the New York Daily News.
"We wanted to give that money to a state that accepted us as an equal. We're too far down the planning path to change."
