    Modern Family star weds True Blood actor


    COLOMBIA-BORN star Sofia Vergara, America's highest-paid TV actress, tied the knot on Sunday in what the entertainment world called the celebrity wedding of the year.

    The Modern Family star pledged her eternal love to fellow actor Joe Manganiello at The Breakers, a swank Palm Beach resort, before a gathering of friends and family, the culmination of a weekend-long wedding celebration.

    Vergara posted photos from her nuptials on Instagram, including various pictures showing the curvaceous 43-year old actress in her torso-hugging, strapless lace bridal gown with plunging neckline.

    She carried a bouquet of white orchids and wore her famous flowing mane loose, aside from a jewelled clip which pinned it to one side.

    Among the stars at her nuptials were Reese Witherspoon, Channing Tatum and the cast of her hit television show Modern Family. Vergara's son from a previous marriage, Manolo, 23, walked her down the aisle.

    The indoor wedding ceremony location was adorned with flowers such as hydrangeas, orchids and white roses, according to People magazine.

    For the past few years, the Colombian-born bombshell has been America's top-earning TV star.

    Last year, Forbes magazine estimated she made, US$37 million (S$53 million), considerably more than the top paid actor, Ashton Kutcher, who earned some US$26 million.

    Vergara reportedly makes US$325,000 an episode for Modern Family, but earns much more from endorsements including being the face of Diet Pepsi.

    Manganiello is famous for his roles in the hit movie Magic Mike and the TV series How I Met Your Mother, as well as True Blood. The couple met about a year and a half ago, and got engaged last December during a Hawaiian vacation.
