The actor announced this week that he and fiancee Alexandra Barreto will exchange vows in Oregon on Sunday, with Strong telling People in a statement:

"I'm incredibly lucky to be getting married to my best friend and partner-in-crime."

The couple met in 2006 when they co-starred in the short-lived WB series Pepper Dennis and then continued to act side-by-side in the horror movie Tooth and Nail that same year.

Strong proposed to Barreto in December 2012, with the question being popped in a down our beneath the redwood trees of his childhood home in Northern California. He even made the ring himself!

"I spent weeks making the ring in secret," Strong says. "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."

Strong is best known for portraying Shawn Hunter on Boy Meets World and it remains unclear whether he'll guest star on the recently-announced sitcom, Girl Meets World.

But it looks like he'll be busy as a newlywed in the meantime. We send Rider and Alexandra our best wishes!
