The “Modern Family” star took to Instagram to share the love she was feeling for her man with her 23.8 million followers by posting three snaps and a video of the pair together to commemorate being married for six years.
Their Wedding Day
In the photos, the couple, who tied the knot in a ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida, on November 21, 2015, was seen cozying up to one another and partaking in some serious public display of affection. They were photographed while doing their first dance as husband and wife. The next slide showed Vergara and Manganiello staring into each other’s eyes and smiling while the former wrapped her arms around the latter’s neck.
In the third snap, they were snapped slicing their extravagant wedding cake, while a swipe to the right featured a clip of the pair dancing the night away.

The actress was wearing a traditional white wedding dress with a strapless design and later changed into a form-fitting number that highlighted her curves. Meanwhile, the “Magic Mike XXL” actor looked dashing in a white dress shirt and a classic black tux that was tailored to perfection.

Their Love Story
Vergara and Manganiello started their romantic relationship in 2014 and got engaged after six months of dating.
“Our first date was in June, and then I proposed to her on Christmas Eve. [We dated for] about six months,” the “True Blood” star told Haute Living. “When you know, you know, and we knew right away — like, very quickly.”

In May of 2014, Manganiello spotted Vergara for the first time during a White House Correspondents’ Dinner. At the time, she was engaged to actor Nick Loeb. Like a true gentleman, the actor didn’t make a move and was respectful of her relationship status. Although, he admitted — and got caught — checking out Vergara’s perky backside at the Bloomberg & Vanity Fair Cocktail after-party.
“I totally got busted. That was actually funny when we first started dating, months after that,” Manganiello told E! News. “We had talked, I guess, or kinda bumped into each other but we didn’t start dating until she was single. She had a boyfriend at that time.”
