Emmy nominated actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson married Justin Mikita yesterday (20 June) in New York City.

According to US magazine, Ferguson’s representative verified the details of the ceremony with a statement.

Writer Tony Kushner, author of Angels in America, officiated the wedding.

Over 200 people, including Zachary Quinto, were in attendance.

The star of the gay friendly show Modern Family proposed to the fellow actor in 2012 September. In their YouTube announcement the couple also made known the formation of a newly-created foundation Tie the Knot, which will raise money for various organizations fighting for LGBT equal rights.

Next month Ferguson, on the day New Zealand’s gay marriage law becomes official, will host a wedding aboard an Air New Zealand flight.
