Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita tie the knot.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson said "I do" to his boyfriend of nearly two years, Justin Mikita, on Saturday, July 20, in New York City.
The wedding, which was officiated by friend and Tony Award winner Tony Kushner, was filled with star power.
The cute couple celebrated their big day with more than 200 guests, which included Ferguson's "Modern Family" co-stars, Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet, and Ty Burrell, and his pals Nigel Lythgoe, Cat Deely, Mary Murphy, and Tyce Diorio, from his guest-judging stint on "So You Think You Can Dance."
Lythgoe spilled the beans that the pair's wedding was going down in NYC on Twitter this morning.

We're pretty sure Lakshmi meant "I love you both," since that was clearly the theme of the celebration held at 82 Mercer. Their wedding event space, which featured exposed brick walls and hardwood floors, was designed by famous wedding planner Bryan Rafanelli. According to Twitter, their attendees also enjoyed sounds from live musicians.
The duo reportedly kicked off their wedding festivities on Friday night with a sunflower-filled rehearsal dinner at Harding's Restaurant in NYC's Flatiron neighborhood. Their guests munched on American favorites like BLTs and short ribs, and drank wine spritzers and strawberry martinis. In addition to toasting their road to wedded bliss, the pair was likely also clinking glasses over the redheaded actor's recent Emmy Award nomination.
Choosing the Big Apple wasn't a tough decision for the couple, who got engaged in Mexico in September. After all, Ferguson spent his formative years on New York City's Big White Way and Mikita is a mutual fan of Broadway.
This morning the groom-to-be, 27, tweeted that he was starting his day with a little of Broadway's best. "Thought about going to the gym this morning then LITERALLY laughed out loud at myself & rolled over to keep watching Patti LuPone youtubes."
While details on the rest of their nuptials remain short, we can bet both Mikita and Ferguson donned bow ties from their Tie The Knot collection, their stylish collection of neckwear which raises awareness about equality and donates all of the proceeds from sales to LGBT efforts.
The pair, who have both been longtime equal rights activists, told Us Weekly in March that the Big Apple's stance on gay marriage was another reason they chose the city for their wedding destination. "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," Ferguson said.
It looks like all their dreams came true today and we couldn't be happier for our favorite TV funny guy Mitchell and his real-life Cam.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
