Rider Strong married Alexandra Barreto in Oregon. People Magazine reports on Oct. 20 that the former “Boy Meets World” star had his wedding a day after costar Danielle Fishel. This meant that some of the cast was not able to attend Strong’s ceremony.
Two members of the cast of “Boy Meets World” selected the same week for their weddings. Strong married Barreto in Oregon while Fishel married Belusko in California. Strong, who played Shawn Hunter on the popular ABC show, admitted that Fishel picked her wedding date first.
Strong picked out a summer camp in Oregon for his wedding location. It tied in perfectly with the wedding theme of outdoor fun. He shared he was grateful for Twitter because it helped him get the band Typhoon to play at the wedding. Guests ate ice cream instead of cake and were invited to take part in some of the summer activities at the camp such as a ropes course. Guests were also asked to sleep in bunk beds after the ceremony.
Strong and Barreto met in 2006 on the set of a television show. They became engaged in 2012 after Strong proposed with a handmade ring. He created the white gold band with help from a jeweler who taught him how to use wax to carve the item. Barreto is also an actress who has had several television roles.
