“We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife,” the couple told People Magazine exclusively. “Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for.”

The ‘Glee’ star walked down the aisle wearing a Monique Lhuillier gown. She carried a bouquet of daisies and baby’s breath. Dorsey, meanwhile, wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit. The couple exchanged Neil Lane rings.

“True love always prevails,” the couple told People.

The two had been friends for four years, according to the mag, and their relationship started to get romantic pretty quickly following Naya’s broken-off engagement to rapper Big Sean in April of 2014.

The nuptials come as a surprise because it was only three months ago that Naya and Big Sean called off their engagement.

“After careful thought and much consideration, Sean has made the difficult decision to call the wedding off,” his rep told Us Magazine at the time. “Sean wishes Naya nothing but the best and it is still his hope that they can continue to work through their issues privately.”

Who is Ryan Dorsey?

  • He was raised in Charleston, West Virginia and attended the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts before moving to Los Angeles.
  • He met Naya four years ago and they have been friends ever since.
  • He’s an actor with past guest-starring roles on TNT’s Southland and NBC’s Parks and Rec.
