The bride walked down the isle in an intimate, low-key ceremony.
There was dancing and there were stars – of the literal kind – as former Dancing with the Stars contestant Melissa Gilbert got hitched to Thirtysomething actor Timothy Bushfield on Wednesday, April 24. The couple opted for an intimate ceremony. The pair tied the knot "in a private ceremony at San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara on April 24," Gilbert's rep confirms to People Magazine.
Gilbert (48) is probably best known for her role on “Little House On The Prairie”. Her beau has some impressive TV credentials as well, having appeared on Blue Bloods, Law & Order and The West Wing. Gilbert and 55-year-old Bushfield broke the news of their engagement back in December and, after just six months, the pair have opted to tied the knot. Both have been married twice before, but they say third time’s the charm, right? Gilbert is also a mother of two, while Bushfield has three children from previous marriages.
Gilbert opted out of the traditional white gown and instead went for a red number with a classic cut – a perfect complement to the warm spring night of the wedding. This isn’t the first high profile event, held at Ysidro Ranch. Over the years, the luxury hotel has played host to a number of celebs, from Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman, who had their rehearsal dinner there, to Hillary Duff, who chose the place for her wedding night.
The pair have also been involved in a number of charity events, like last year's Christmas Eve for the Homeless.
