'HawthoRNe' Hunk Michael Vartan Gets Married!
Michael Vartan is officially off the market.
The “HawthoRNe” actor wed his fiancée, Lauren Skaar, during a SoCal ceremony on Saturday.
“I am thrilled to confirm the wedding of Michael Vartan and Lauren Skaar!” Michael’s rep told Access Hollywood on Saturday. “It was an intimate and heartfelt ceremony witnessed by their family and closest friends!”
The couple exchanged vows in Newport Beach, Calif., at The Resort at Pelican Hill, according to People.
Michael reportedly wore a tux by Giorgio Armani during the ceremony, while actor Victor Garber – Michael’s former “Alias” co-star – stood by his side as a groomsmen, according to the mag.
As for the bride, Lauren reportedly wore a Vera Wang gown, paired with a sparkling Oscar de la Renta belt.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Michael met his now-wife in the fruit aisle of his local Whole Foods market.
“I saw her in the produce section and I thought to myself, ‘I’ve gotta find a way — I’ve got to jockey position in this checkout line or something,’” Michael told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush in a May 2010 interview of his first sighting of Lauren. “I saw her and I was I was quite stunned.”
Unable to muster up enough mojo to approach her in the store, it was upon second sight that Michael made his move.
“As I was leaving, I saw her putting her groceries into the trunk of her car and I just thought, ‘This is it, man!’” Michael recounted at the time. “Life’s too short!”
Michael eventually approached Lauren, but didn’t manage to make a suave introduction.
“I was like a blubbering idiot,” he said. “I didn’t really know what to do.”
The handsome actor, who won over countless ladies as Drew Barrymore’s leading man in “Never Been Kissed” – managed to get Lauren to accept his e-mail address, but he left the parking lot thinking it was hopeless.
“I think she felt sorry for me and [taking my e-mail] was a way to not let me down too hard ‘cause she thought there’s a chance this poor blubbering idiot might commit suicide if I say no, so it was like, ‘Here, don’t kill yourself. Give me your e-mail,’” Michael told Billy. “The minute she left I thought, ‘Well, that’s never gonna happen. Way to go idiot! You blew yet another chance at love!’ But she e-mailed me.”
