Actor Jonathan Bennett and TV host
Jaymes Vaughan married in Mexico over the weekend.
According to PEOPLE, the couple skipped
the traditional wedding walk down the aisle and instead met at the

Bennett, who is best known for playing
Aaron Samuels in the 2004 comedy Mean Girls, and Vaughan, the
co-host of Celebrity Page, got engaged in late 2020. In
proposing, Vaughan wrote a song for his future husband, which was
also played at the wedding.
The couple met when Bennett came on
Vaughan's show to promote Halloween Wars in 2016. After the
interview, Bennett asked Vaughan for his number.
