She may have played Ugly Betty
on TV, but America Ferrera
glowed as a gorgeous bride when she tied the knot with longtime boyfriend
Ryan Piers Williams.
The Emmy-winning actress, 27, and Williams were married Monday night in "an intimate setting amongst close friends and family," her rep tells PEOPLE. "The bride wore a dress by Amsale's Christos label and Fred Leighton earrings."
Guests at the ceremony included the actress's former Ugly Betty
costars Vanessa Williams, Rebecca Romijn
, her husband Jerry O'Connell and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
's Blake Lively
The couple, who became engaged
in June 2010, first met when Williams cast Ferrera in his student film at the University of Southern California.
"They aren't one of those flashy couples," a friend of the pair told PEOPLE in 2007 when they began looking for a home together.
"We kind of connected from the get-go on that professional level and that was something that really drew us to each other," Ferrera told PEOPLE
after her engagement, "a shared passion for what we do and our work."
