It’s a nostalgic marital match made in heaven. One Tree Hill actress Hilarie Burton and Supernatural’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan married this weekend in an “intimate” wedding ceremony, the couple announced Monday, October 7. For devoted fans of the lovebirds, the moment was a long time coming after the pair expanded their family together in the last decade.
“Ok. A few words… It was an intimate ceremony…” Morgan, 53, wrote on Instagram, alongside a shot from the wedding day. The groom revealed that his officiants included his former Supernatural colleague Jensen Ackles serving as well as his Walking Dead co-star Norman Reedus. The couple’s two children, George and Augustus, also had respective roles in the ceremony.
Morgan noted that the reception, held October 5, was “the party of the century” and concluded his post with a call-out to guests. “Thank you to all our friends and family. It was, without a doubt… the best day of our lives. Ever ever,” he wrote on social media. “Just never knew that it could be so damn perfect. It was. And more. Xxxxjd.”
Burton—who first rose to fame on MTV’s Total Request Live and was a series lead on CW’s One Tree Hill—also shared the first image from her wedding day.
“This past weekend was the best of my entire life,” the mom of two, 37, wrote on Instagram. “There are dozens of thank yous I need to make. So bear with me over the next week as I gush over the amazing group of people who gave us this beautiful moment. But before we do any of that, Jeff and I just want to put it out there that WE GOT MARRIED! For real. We’ve lived as husband and wife for a decade. We’ve built a family, and a farm and found our community.”
“For years, publications have reported that we got married in 2014 or 2015 and that I’ve been married and divorced before. All untrue. But WE knew our truth,” she added. “So it felt silly to try and correct anything. Here’s the God’s honest fact: From the moment I met @jeffreydeanmorgan, he was my husband. Rather than make vows right out of the gate, we lived them. For over ten years. The good times and the bad. Standing up there with our children at our sides – celebrating all that has been – was bliss. I love you Jeffrey. I love our intimate group of friends and family who joined us. I love the various circles of loved ones who have supported us over the years. It was private and magical and everything I dreamed. So yeah. I’m Mrs. Morgan. 10.5.19.”
