Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson has married his boyfriend Justin Mikita.

According to People, Ferguson wed the lawyer in downtown New York on Saturday (July 20).

The couple became engaged in Mexico last year after dating for almost two years.

Ferguson, who plays Mitchell Pritchett in the hit ABC sitcom, tweeted on Sunday: "Never been happier. XO Goodnight!"

Playwright and screenwriter Tony Kushner officiated at the ceremony, which was attended by around 200 guests, including Ferguson's Modern Family co-stars Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell.

Other guests included Cat Deeley, Zachary Quinto and Nigel Lythgoe.

Julie Bowen tweeted: "It's official. @jessetyler and @JustinMikita are Mr and Mr! #bestweddingever."
