"It was a beautiful setting for a wedding, very peaceful and quiet. The vows were brief and lasted about 15 minutes. There was lots of cheering and applause as it ended,” a source said. The actress later shared photos of the wedding on her Instagram.

5. Chris Wood has been linked to several actresses in the past. 

Even though this is Chris Wood's first marriage, he was linked to several actresses in the past, including AnnaSophia Robb and Hanna Mangan Lawrence. However, it looks like he found his forever love in Melissa Benoist!
