After being engaged for three years, Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams have finally tied the knot and become newlyweds!
A source has confirmed to PEOPLE that the former cast member of Modern Family, age 31, and the Bachelor in Paradise bartender, age 38, tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony on Saturday, August 20, at Sunstone Winery located close to Santa Barbara, California.
Hyland’s co-stars on Modern Family, Nolan Gould, Sofia Vergara (who brought her son, Manolo Vergara), Julie Bowen, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson were among the many friends and family members that gathered to celebrate the happy occasion with the couple (who was joined by his husband, Justin Mikita).
The pair engaged in their initial online courtship on Twitter in 2016, but they didn’t officially start dating until the autumn of 2017. Adams subsequently revealed that he had met Hyland for the first time over social media.
Before she began dating Hyland, she was quite outspoken about her not-so-secret infatuation on Adams while he was competing for JoJo Fletcher’s affections on season 12 of The Bachelorette in 2016. This occurred while he was in the competition to win JoJo’s heart in 2016.
The duo wowed the audience by participating in Halloween 2017 dressed as a costumed couple from the show Stranger Things. After that, they spent some time together in his hometown of Nashville and her hometown of Los Angeles, chronicling their travels on Snapchat and Instagram throughout their time together.
Even more impressive is the fact that he organized a week-long birthday party for Hyland, complete with a trip to Disneyland. They went out and bought their first Christmas tree together in December of 2017, and then they decorated it.
After nearly two years of dating, Adams finally popped the question to Hyland in the summer of 2019. The wedding was supposed to take place in August of 2020, but the pair had to postpone it numerous times because of fears of COVID-19 in the midst of the epidemic.
Adams shared with PEOPLE in August 2021 that he and Hyland were “hoping” to be married in 2022. However, he also hinted that they were “going to travel to Vegas or the courts” to wed in the event that another obstacle arose.
“The wedding was meant to take place the year before, but for understandable reasons, it did not take place. This was going to be the year that we got married, but it didn’t end up happening, “the bartender from Bachelor in Paradise revealed this information to People magazine at the time.
He said, “So now we are hoping next year, or we’re gonna go to Vegas, or the courtroom, I don’t know — well, we’re not going to do those last two things, but I don’t know. The year 2022 has got to be ours, doesn’t it?!”

In an interview with PEOPLE that took place in the last month, Hyland discussed her upcoming wedding as well as the aspects of married life that she is most looking forward to.
“We are not idealists,” was what she stated. “Together, we have purchased a home. We have our dogs together, and for the last nearly five years, we have been enjoying this adventure of life together while providing support to one another. Therefore, I do not anticipate that there will be many significant changes.”
In addition, Hyland stated that she was arranging the big day for the couple “one step at a time” and that she didn’t “actually have a lot of time to think about it.”
She continued by saying, “I’m extremely thrilled to be able to — on paper, officially — start our family.” “I’m really pleased to be able to,”
