When The Wonder Years’ Danica McKellar first started planning her wedding to composer Mike Verta, she had one wish: “I didn’t want a huge event,” she said. “I wanted to be able to talk to everyone and I wanted it to be intimate.”
At her recent wedding in La Jolla, Calif., McKellar’s wish came true.
The couple, who have dated for seven and a half years years, tied the knot in a church in front of 150 family members and friends, including her maid of honor, the bride’s sister, Crystal McKellar, who played Becky Slater on The Wonder Years.
At the black tie reception, the two newlyweds danced their first dance to a love song composed by Mike Verta himself before cutting the wedding cake.
Danica McKellar, 34, who went on to study mathematics, and Mike Verta, 36, got engaged last August in Chicago, where he surprised her with a platinum and diamond ring during a promotional tour for her second book, Kiss My Math.
Between Bruce Willis and Emma Heming, Ryan Adams and Mandy Moore, Natasha Bedingfield and Matt Robinson, and David Letterman and Regina Lasko, the celebrity wedding bells are definitely a-ringin’ these days.
