Dynasty star Elizabeth Gillies finally tied the knot with long-term boyfriend Michael Corcoran. Initially, the couple had planned a grand wedding ceremony in April. But, they postponed it due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic. Later, they decided to skip the grand stuff and got hitched in an intimate garden ceremony. Only 10 people attended the ceremony, including both of Gillies’ grandmothers. In the pictures shared on Instagram, the couple looks very happy – and we are happy for them too!
The Final Wedding
Elizabeth Gillies and Michael Corcoran got hitched on August 8th at an Inn at Fenbrook Farms in New Jersey. They had a beautiful garden ceremony. Elizabeth’s father, Dave Gillies, got ordained and officiated the wedding. Her dog, Bubba, was the ring-bearer. The bride wore a gorgeous satin dress by Britt Wood Designs, Jimmy Choo shoes, and blue jewelry. Further, she expressed,
Once we were exchanging vows, it hit me that my dad was marrying us and our loved ones were there, and I think I turned to Michael and mouthed, ‘Oh, my God, we actually did it.’ We were so happy.
To avoid flying amidst a pandemic, the couple drove to their wedding venue in a Class A RV from their home in Atlanta. They got tested for the virus before leaving. Later, they quarantined in Gillies’ childhood home for 2 weeks. The couple admitted to relaxing all day, cooking, taking their dogs on a long walk, and just enjoying each other’s company.
Postponing the ceremony
Initially, the ceremony was supposed to take place on April 25th. But, the couple had to postpone it due to the pandemic. They did not feel like it was the right thing to do when the world was going through so much. Everyone’s safety was more important to them than their own wedding. Later, they admitted that it was the right decision. Further, Gillies continued,
I’m very happy with the way ours turned out. I don’t think I would’ve had it any other way. At the end of the day, it’s about you and the person you love. The rest doesn’t matter.
Elizabeth and Michael: First meet to Proposal
Elizabeth and Michael knew each other a long time before they started dating. Gillies’ admitted to having a crush on him since the time they met. Additionally, they went on to date for 6 years before Michael proposed. The couple recently bought a house in Atlanta. The actress shared,
When we got there, he started leading me down to the backyard. I had no idea what he was doing. All of a sudden he got down on one knee and proposed to me right there. I was totally surprised. It was a perfect proposal.
Cheers to the happy couple!
