"Glee" Star Matthew Morrison Marries Renee Puente



    "Glee" star Matthew Morrison married girlfriend Renee Puente in Hawaii in front of about 50 family members and friends on Saturday, E! News has confirmed.

    The 35-year-old actor popped the question to the 31-year-old model and actress last year with a blue sapphire ring after two years of dating.

    Their wedding took place in a private estate on the island of Maui, People reported. The bride wore an ivory, long sleeve, wedding gown with a sheer, lace overlay and sparkling sash, a custom Gustavo design. She also sported a pink rose flower crown and carried a matching, cascading bouquet. Morrison wore a Brooks Brothers tuxedo, People said. He also wore a leafy lei.

    During the reception, Puente put on a special Hula performance for her new hubby, who later joined her for a couple's version, and the two also performed a duet of Laura Benanti's "Starry Eyed/Video Games," the magazine said.

    Morrison had told Access Hollywood Live that their wedding was going to be "very, very small."

    The actor's good friends, Elton John and David Furnish, announced the engagement onstage at their White Tie and Tiara ball in London on June 27, 2013. Coldplay frontman Chris Martin then followed the announcement by being joined with Elton for a duet of "Your Song," which was dedicated to the newly engaged couple.

    Morrison tweeted the next day, "An incredible night of LOVE @ejaf Ball. I'm going to marry my best friend! Happy day for me and @Renee_Puente."

    He also tweeted, "In a world filled with so much negativity, I'm so inspired by all of the positive wishes for our engagement! Means so much to us! Thanks!"

    A source told E! News at the time, "They are thrilled. It is the first marriage for them both. He loves her so much. The theme of the night was love, which is so appropriate."

    No word if the new husband and wife, who first met at a Grammy party, have decided on a nickname.

    Puente tweeted a few days after their engagement was revealed, "Ummm.. Can we change our name from Rematt to something that sounds more attractive such as maybe... MattnNay???"
