The King of Queens, Kevin James, has tied the royal knot.
The star of CBS’s hit comedy married his longtime girlfriend, model Steffiana De La Cruz, on Saturday at the St. Edward Catholic Church in the Southern California beach town of Dana Point, PEOPLE reports.
Attending the nuptials were friends, family and fellow CBS star Ray Romano. (James’s King character originally began as a recurring role on Romano’s Everybody Loves Raymond.)
After the ceremony, wedding guests celebrated with a reception at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach.
This is the first marriage for James, 39, who originally hails from Stony Brook, N.Y., and whose CBS hit has been running since 1998. He reportedly met De La Cruz on a blind date, and the couple announced their engagement last fall.
