‘Big Bang Theory’ star Kaley Cuoco marries Ryan Sweeting on NYE

Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting kicked off 2014 as husband and wife: The couple were married on New Year’s Eve.

“The Big Bang Theory” star, 28, and her tennis player beau, 26, rang in 2014 by tying the knot during fire-and-ice themed nuptials at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Santa Susana, according to several reports. 

The Spanish-style villa boasts an open-air venue draped with fabric and chandeliers. The couple’s ceremony space appeared to be under a draped canopy adorned with crystals and white flower arrangements.

Cuoco, who promptly added her husband’s last name to hers on her Twitter profile, took to social media to share several pictures from the big night, calling it the “greatest night of my entire life :).”

The couple greeted guests as they arrived at 7 p.m, with Cuoco wearing a red dress, which she swapped out for a petal pink Vera Wang gown for the ceremony, Us Weekly reported.

The custom strapless gown featured a sweetheart neckline and hand-gathered detailed bodice and was accented by Chantilly lace appliqué, E! News said; Cuoco’s nude tulle veil boasted floating Chantilly lace appliqué as well.

The groom also went the nontraditional route, wearing an all-black ensemble and going without a tie.


“Bachelorette" alum Ali Fedotowsky and Cuoco’s “Big Bang” costar and ex-boyfriend Johnny Galecki were in attendance, Us reported. And Cuoco clarified that Sweeting did not sing to her as she walked down the aisle — despite his “mad shower singing skills” — their dear friend Joe Gillette did.

“Last night I married my sweetheart :) life couldn’t be sweeter,” Cuoco, who goes by the handle @NormanCook on online, wrote, sharing a picture of the two of them on a white dance floor.

The actress was sure to give a shout-out to her photographer Claud Craig and to her bakery for creating a ceiling-hung wedding cake.

“TY to #thebutterend for creating our magical chandelier cake. Literally hanging above us. EPIC,” she wrote, sharing a photo of the reverse-tiered confection.

She also shared a close-up of the confection on Twitter after getting several inquiries about the stunning showpiece.

Sweeting also took to Instagram to gush about his new bride.

“My cheeks hurt from smiling so hard. Best night in history,” he wrote, adding later that it was “magical.”


Cuoco and Sweeting announced their engagement in September after just three months of dating. In November, the couple tied the “not” on “Ellen.”

“I am very, very happy,” Cuoco told Ellen DeGeneres. “Life is so good right now, I cannot even tell you, we are so happy.”

The actress admitted that the relationship was “newer” and knew that “it looks a little crazy to some people,” but said that their romance just took off as soon as they went on their first date

“By day two, I was like, oh, my God, it hit me. It’s so unbelievable, I said, ‘This is it, this is it, this is it ... .’”
