What made the day so special is that the Sept. 5 ceremony in the Catskills transformed the two into a real life fairy tale. Santino and Hershberg met during the Broadway production of Cinderella in 2014, according to the New York Times. Fontana, 33, was ending his contract with the play as Prince Topher, a role that earned him a Tony Award nomination, while Hershberg was just coming on as an ensemble member and understudy. Before Santino departed the production, he shared the stage with his bride-to-be for three weeks in a scene where they danced.
Hershberg's father perfectly described the day to the New York Times, saying, "Today, she’s wearing the dress for real, with her real-life prince by her side."
The bride stunned the crowd in that aforementioned dress, which was a hand-embroidered gown with a dramatic fan-shaped train fashioned out of petals, made by renowned theatrical costumer, William Ivey Long.
Hershberg skipped any more theatrical flourishes underneath the gown, instead opting for shoes from DSW. "They’re totally pretty enough, but we’re not having a Cinderella moment with the shoes," she joked.
The couple wrote their own vows, and the ceremony was officiated by actor and friend, Peter Bartlett, who shared the stage with Santino as the villain in Cinderella.
In addition to voicing the villainous Prince Hans in the 2013 Disney blockbuster Frozen, Santino was a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and can be seen in the upcoming NBC police drama, Shades of Blue, with Jennifer Lopez. His new wife has actually played a bride on stage three times in Idaho!, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and It Shoulda Been You.
Now that Santino and Hershberg have found their happily ever after, we can’t wait to see these celebrity couples tie the knot next:
