The news comes just six months after Melissa and Chris tied the knot at a private estate in Ojai, California.

A source told E! News, “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." As for the reception, the insider shared, “It looked like an elegant outdoor dinner party. There was a lot of laughter and happiness." The source added, “There were lots of glowing candles and lights strung above. The food was served family style and everyone passed the dishes back and forth."

Some of the wedding guests to attend include Kevin Smith, Odette Annable and Paul Wesley.

The pair had been dating since March 2017. Romance rumors started swirling after they photographed kissing during a vacation in Cancun.

At the time, a source told E! News, “They didn't appear to care who watched their passionate embraces.”
