Congratulations are in order for Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson!
Ferguson, 37, married longtime boyfriend Justin Mikita, 27, Saturday, July 20, in downtown New York City, ET can confirm.
Angels in America playwright Tony Kushner officiated the ceremony.
Celebrity guests included Zachary Quinto, Padma Lakshmi, Jerry O'Connell, Rebecca Romijn as well as Ferguson's fellow Modern Family co-stars Eric Stonestreet, Julie Bowen and Ty Burell.
The couple got engaged in Mexico back in September.
"We want our interpersonal relationship to be acknowledged in a union formalized in a wedding ceremony," Ferguson explained in a video the couple posted online for the marriage equality organization Tie the Knot announcing the engagement news. "But we're just like millions of Americans who are denied the basic civil rights to marry the person that we love."
The two also teamed up with the company The Tie Bar in which the online retailer will donate the proceeds of a special bow tie collection to various organizations seeking to improve civil rights for gay and lesbian couples.
