James Murray & Melyssa Davies
The Impractical Jokers star wed his fiancée on Sept. 25, PEOPLE exclusively announced.
Murray, 44, and Davies tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony at the Lake House Inn in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, in front of family and friends, including the rest of the Jokers: Sal Vulcano, Brian Quinn and Joe Gatto, who served as best man and also officiated the wedding.
“We had four different weddings being planned simultaneously, depending on how everything worked,” Murray told PEOPLE of how they reworked their plans as COVID-19 restrictions shifted over the past six months.
“We ended up going with a compromised list, which was about a quarter of the original list that we had,” he continued. “Honestly, it was a lot less stress having one quarter of the guest list.”
“It’s been interesting,” the actor added. “But all that matters is that our closest friends and family were there, and all that matters to me, truly, is that this one person was there besides me, and that she said yes.”

Liz Gillies & Michael Corcoran
The Dynasty star married music composer Michael Corcoran in an intimate garden ceremony on Aug. 8, she announced on Instagram, sharing several photos from the outdoor nuptials. The happy news comes after the couple had to postpone their wedding due to the coronavirus outbreak.
In one shot, Gillies and Corcoran stand in front of a floral arch while appearing to exchange vows. Another picture shows the couple in a sweet embrace.
“8•8•20,” Gillies captioned the posts.
In an interview with Vogue published on August 16, Gillies said that she and Corcoran initially planned to get married on April 25 — the date of their French bulldog Otis’ birthday — but postponed the original nuptials due to the pandemic.
“Once we saw how dire the situation was, we knew we had to postpone,” she said. “It was a no-brainer for us. Aside from the obvious travel and crowd restrictions, it didn’t feel right to be celebrating in such a big way when there was so much going on in the world. It would have been in poor taste to burden people by asking them to risk their lives to come to our wedding. There were more important things to focus on. Our wedding could wait.”
“It really focused everything down to what matters in life,” Corcoran explained. “A big, extravagant experience in the middle of a pandemic didn’t make any sense.”
Instead of saying “I do” at the St. Regis Atlanta, the pair wed at the Inn at Fernbrook Farms in New Jersey with 10 guests in attendance, including both of Gillies’ grandmothers, according to Vogue.
