Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — It’s “Boy Meets Marriage” for Rider Strong.

The Boy Meets World star, 33, got married Sunday afternoon at a summer camp in Oregon, his rep confirms to ABC News.

“I’m incredibly lucky to be getting married to my best friend and partner-in-crime, Alexandra Barreto,” Strong said Friday in a statement to ABC. “It’s going to be a camp-themed weekend with everyone sleeping in bunks, a ropes course, games, a talent show … let’s hope it doesn’t rain too much.”

The actor also tweeted to his fans, saying “Off to get hitched. Next time I tweet, I’ll be a married man.”

The couple tied the knot Sunday at 3:30 p.m. PST/ 6:30 EST, according to US Weekly, who shared the intimate details of the wedding.

US also reported that Barreto wore a Nicole Miller gown, while Strong sported a Rag & Bone suit.

Strong was a breakout star from 1993 to 2000 on Boy Meets World, and wasn’t the only cast member from the show getting married over the weekend.

Danielle Fishel, who played Topanga, also got married. A source close to the actress confirmed Fishel got married Saturday in Los Angeles and it was reported Ben Savage (Cory Matthews), her love interest and Rider’s best friend on the show, was in attendance.

“Bad news … so I’m missing some of my Boy Meets World family (that was my fault, [Danielle] chose the date first),” Strong joked Friday. “On the bright side, after I mentioned my new favorite band, Typhoon, on Twitter, they offered to come play at our wedding! So grateful.”

After Boy Meets World, Strong had stints on Kim Possible and Pepper Dennis, the show where he met his future wife in 2006.
