The 26-year-old actress, who rose to fame as the hapless, braces-wearing magazine assistant on the ABC sitcom, and Williams, 30, were wed in "an intimate setting amongst close friends and family," her rep told People. 

Guests included "Betty" costars Vanessa Williams and Rebecca Romijn, with husband Jerry O'Connell in tow. "Green Lantern" actress Blake Lively showed as well -- the gals are big-screen BFFs after all, from their "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" films. 

The bride wore a tiered tulle creation from Amsale's Christos label and Fred Leighton earrings, and carried a bouquet of crimson roses.

The couple met when he cast her in a student film at USC (he was Class of 2005; she was Class of 2003). Williams later directed Ferrera in the 2010 Sundance entry "The Dry Land." Ferrera will next lend her voice to the sequel of "How to Tame Your Dragon."
