Danica McKellar is married.
The actress, who is best known as Kevin Arnold’s sometimes sweetheart Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years, married Scott Sveslosky in Kauai, Hawaii on Saturday. The couple wed in a small beachfront ceremony in front of about 25 family members and close friends.
The ceremony included a ritualistic-like blending of the two families. McKellar and Sveslosky exchanged “family vows” with the bride’s 4-year-old son Draco and the groom’s 10-year-old Hunter. McKellar said, “We also performed a sand ceremony where the four of us poured different-colored sand into a vase which we will keep at home.”
The actress/math whiz told People magazine, “It was absolutely magical. We were married at 6:30 a.m. in a sunrise ceremony. The forecast predicted rain, but there was not a drop of water in the clear sky. The sun came peaking up over the mountains just as I was walking down the aisle, alongside both my parents.”
McKellar took to Twitter to announce the big news. She tweeted, “Hey guys, I got married!! #dreamcometrue.”

This is McKellar’s second marriage. She and music composer Mike Verta divorced in 2012. It is also the second marriage for Sveslosky, who is a partner at the international law firm Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton.
McKellar’s most recent foray into television ended last May when she was voted off Dancing With the Stars in Week 8 of the reality show competition. It was a bit of a rough run for McKellar, who was an early front-runner to win the entire competition. However, she suffered a broken rib during rehearsal in late April. Although McKellar was able to continue in the competition, the injury most certainly had some impact on her performance.
