Ugly Betty star marries

AMERICA Ferrera has married Ryan Piers Williams.

The Ugly Betty star tied the knot with her long-term boyfriend on Monday night in an intimate ceremony surrounded by family and castmates from the show, which ended last year.

The happy couple wed at America's former co-star, Vanessa Williams' house in Chappaqua, upstate New York.

A source told People magazine: "It was an intimate setting amongst close friends and family.

"The bride wore a dress by Amsale's Christos label and Fred Leighton earrings."

America, 27, met Ryan at the University of Southern California when he cast her in a student film.

Ryan, who runs a production company, proposed last June and America first showed off her diamond topped engagement ring at the Edinburgh Film Festival in Scotland later that month.

Shortly after their engagement, America said of their relationship: "We kind of connected from the get-go on that professional level and that was something that really drew us to each other. A shared passion for what we do and our work."

The wedding ceremony was officiated by Ugly Betty cast member Judith Light, and plenty of other stars were in attendance including Rebecca Romijn, her husband Jerry O'Connell, and America's co-stars from the film Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Alexis Bledel, Amber Tamblyn, and Blake Lively.

Since Ugly Betty ended, America has had a recurring role on drama series The Good Wife and she will next voice a character in animated film How to Train Your Dragon 2.
