One Boy Meets World star after the other!
Rider Strong, best known for his role as Shawn Hunter on the '90s sitcom Boy Meets World, got married over the weekend to fiancée Alexandra Barreto.
Strong, 33, and Barreto, 31, said their "I do's" in Oregon on Sunday in front of their close family and friends.
According to Us Weekly, the cheerful bride wore a Nicole Miller wedding gown and Strong sported a Rag & Bone suit.
The couple became engaged last December when Strong popped the question with a ring that he made himself.
"I spent weeks making the ring in secret," Strong told People. "I carved the ring out of wax, cast it in white gold and had my dad make a wooden ring box for me. My dad made my mom's ring, so I was following in his footsteps."
As for the close proximity between his and Danielle Fishel's marriage on Saturday, Strong said he was aware Fishel was marrying this weekend but elected to choose the date nonetheless.
"Bad news: Danielle Fishel's getting married this same weekend, so I'm missing some of my 'Boy Meets World' family," Rider told Us. "That was my fault. She chose the date first."
Congrats to the newlyweds!
