‘Glee’ Star Matthew Morrison Marries Model Renee Puente
Congratulations are in order! Glee star Matthew Morrison married model Renee Puente on October 18 in Maui, Hawaii.
The longtime couple exchanged vows during an intimate ceremony of just 50 guests, held on a private estate in Kihei. Kiley Dean, R&B singer and Britney Spears‘ back-up vocalist, sang as Puente walked down the aisle. Later, the newlyweds themselves sang a duet version of “Starry Eyed/Video Games” by Nashville star Laura Benanti.
Morrison and Puente had been dating since 2011 and got engaged last summer. Friends Elton John and David Furnish had announced the news during this year’s White Tie and Tiara Ball in London, and to celebrate, John and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin serenaded the couple with a duet version of John’s pop standard “Your Song.”
“They are thrilled. It is the first marriage for them both. He loves her so much. The theme of the night was love, which is so appropriate,” a source said to E! News.
Morrison is best known for playing Glee club mentor Will Schuester. He will star alongside Ariana Grande and Katie Holmes in the Weinstein Co. animated film Underdogs, which hits theaters in April 2015.
