Justin Hartley, 40, who plays Kevin Pearson on the hit NBC drama series “This is Us,” finally tied the knot with girlfriend of four years Chrishell Stause, 36, known for her roles as Amanda Dillon and Jordan Ridgeway in “All My Children” and “Days of Our Lives,” respectively.
The intimate outdoor ceremony at the Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA., was attended by Hartley’s “This is Us” co-stars Sterling K. Brown, Susan Watkins, Chrissy Metz, Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, and Chris Sullivan along with the couple’s family and friends.
The groom stood out in a navy tuxedo and bow tie, while the bride looked gorgeous as ever in a Monique Lhuillier dress, with the bridesmaids complementing the couple in pink gowns.
“The wedding exceeded anything I could have ever imagined,” PEOPLE claims to have been told by Stause. “They don’t make them any better than Justin, and I could not be more thrilled to officially be Mrs. Hartley!”
The couple started dating back in 2013, which developed into courtship leading up to their engagement in 2015 and culminating in the exchange of marital vows on Saturday, with Stause promising to always be there for Hartley “just like the Dodgers in the World Series,” much to the amusement of the guests.
When the couple attended the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Los Angeles earlier this month, Hartley confided to PEOPLE about their preparations for the Saturday nuptials.
“We hired a wedding planner to take care of all that stuff, and we’re just sort of going to show up and have a good time,’ Hartley told the magazine. “I want to call her my wife. That will be amazing.”
Hartley, who has a 12-year-old daughter Isabella Justice from his previous marriage to Lindsay Korman (2004 to 2012), told the magazine last year that she would have a role to play in the wedding.
“I think I’m going to have her do maybe the ring bearer and the flower girl, and maybe if she wants to she can sing. She sings, as well. She can do whatever she wants,” is what he had said.
During a live Facebook interview with TODAY’s Brittany Haviland earlier this year, Hartley shared the story of how he had proposed to Stause with a broken ring which he was supposed to have got fixed.
“It was my job to get it fixed. I kept putting it off kind of, and then I finally told her I had it fixed,” he confided. “She opened up the ring box, and it was broken, and she turned around to tell me ‘Honey it’s broken.’ and I was on one knee.”

In another interview with PEOPLE in October last year, when Hartley was asked why he was most excited to tie the knot, he said, “Just having her as my wife, to be honest with you. It’s like, I want to call her my wife. That will be amazing.”
He told Us Weekly, “I’m actually looking forward to the wedding day. I’m going to have friends coming in from out of town that I haven’t seen in a few years, it’s going to be great.”
