LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jesse Williams is officially off the market.
The actor, who plays hunky Dr. Jackson Avery on “Grey’s Anatomy,” married longtime girlfriend Aryn Drake-Lee on Saturday, according to People.
Jesse, 31, and Aryn, a 32-year-old real estate broker, tied the knot in a “romantic, elegant, evening ceremony,” while family and close friends looked on, the mag reported.
“Jesse was beaming with joy throughout the entire ceremony,” a wedding guest told the mag. “It was the perfect night with lots of smiling, laughing and emotion. You could feel the love they have for each other. They’re madly in love!”
The newlyweds (who dated for five years) first met in New York, when Jesse was teaching middle and high school before landing his breakout role, romancing Alexis Bledel in “The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants 2.”
“I was a teacher when I met her, so she’s been with me through all different facets of my career. She’s stuck with me through thick and thick, and thick and thin,” Jesse told USA Today of then-girlfriend Aryn back in 2010. “We know each other in and out.”
