Emmy nominee Debra Messing, 32, who plays Grace on the NBC sitcom "Will & Grace," married actor and screenwriter Daniel Zelman, 33, on Sunday in a grove near Santa Barbara, reports the Associated Press. The couple, who reportedly met nine years ago became engaged in 1998, spent their wedding night at the Bacara Resort (which has gotten a lot of press lately, after rumors -- since denied -- that Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones were planning to wed there). Messing and Zelman are now said to be honeymooning at an undisclosed location. Zelman can currently be seen as one of the PhD students in "What Lies Beneath," with Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer. Before "Will & Grace," Messing starred in her own series, "Ned and Stacey." This past May, she starred as Mary Magdalene in the hit CBS miniseries "Jesus." There's no word on whether or not Messing will be at the Emmys this Sunday in Los Angeles, where she faces off against Jenna Elfman, Patricia Heaton, Jane Kaczmarek and Sarah Jessica Parker for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
