Naya Rivera's wedding was attended by just 12 guests.
The 'Glee' actress tied the knot with friend Ryan Dorsey at the Las Ventanas al Paraiso resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, earlier this month and the groom's father Arnold Dorsey says the ''beautiful'' ceremony was very intimate.
Among the group were Naya's mother Yolanda and her stepfather, but not her father, Arnold and his wife Rhonda, Ryan's mother, his ex-wife Cheryl and her husband David and Ryan's brother Aaron.
And after the ''strictly family'' wedding - which saw guests dine on a feast of steak, shrimp, seabass, lobster and flatbreads - friends of the couple joined them for a celebration.
Arnold admitted the wedding also came as a shock to family members, and they only knew it was happening six weeks ago.
He told the MailOnline website: ''We knew about the wedding six weeks ago, still, it was a bit of a shock!
''I met Naya a couple of weeks ago, I was working in California and I drove up to her house. She's very tiny, real petite, but real down to earth, not with her nose stuck up in the air.''
Naya - who was due to marry former boyfriend Big Sean on July 19, the day she tied the knot with Ryan - first met her new spouse in a nightclub four years ago and they became friends, but Arnold says his son wasn't interested in a relationship back then.
He said: ''I knew she met him at some kind of a party, she saw him across a dance club and she went to talk to him.
''He was a playboy, he didn't want to settle down, he wanted to concentrate on his work. But they remained friends and I guess they hooked up after the engagement from Big Sean was dropped.''
