Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson has wed his boyfriend of two years, Justin Mikita in New York. The TV actor’s co-stars Julie Bowen, that's Claire) and Ty Burrell, (that's Phil) joined Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell and Zachary Quinto at the nuptials on Saturday. The ceremony was officiated by playwright Tony Kushner, (he wrote Angels in America for which he won the Pulitzer Prize and Lincoln, for which he won pretty much nothing).
Ferguson’s Modern Family partner Eric Stonestreet was also among the guests, according to Us Weekly magazine.
The newlyweds, who are the co-owners of the TieTheKnot bow-tie line, have been dating for almost two years. Ferguson proposed in Mexico in September.
In March, the lovable ginger actor explained their choice of wedding location to Usmagazine, saying "We wanted to get married in New York, because that's where it's legal, so we want to support the state that's in support of us."
In celebration of their commitment to each other, the pair co-designed a "TieTheKnot" bowtie collection, with all proceeds going towards groups focused on LGBT rights.
