Modern Family co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his fiance Justin Mikita have announced their wedding will take place in New York.

The 37-year-old Ferguson announced his engagement to lawyer Mikita last year.

While not specifying a date, Ferguson told glossy Chicago that the couple will marry sometime this year in New York.

“We are getting married this year, and we're doing it in New York, because that's where it's legal for us,” Ferguson said. “And I love New York. I lived there for 12 years, so I feel like it's a second home to me. That's the plan so far. We haven't picked colors and knives and forks yet, but we're early in the process.”

Ferguson added that he wanted to make his wedding “very special.”

“The beautiful thing about being a nontraditional couple is we are embracing the fact that we don't have to be traditional with our ceremony either,” he said. “We're not doing a wedding party, we are trying to include friends and music and things that we love, and we have a great friend of ours officiating. We're trying to tailor it to us. I've been to so many beautiful weddings, and I've only been to a few weddings. I want to make this one very special and unique to us.”
