Sarah Hyland Opens Up About Magical Disney Moment from Her Wedding to Wells Adams

Modern Family alum Sarah Hyland and her husband, Wells Adams, are officially living in wedded bliss—and this fittingly involves bonding over The Bachelor.

The 32-year-old star sat down with PureWow to discuss her partnership with Tic Tac, as well as her relationship with Adams and her favorite moment from their wedding.

As it turns out, one of their favorite hobbies is tuning in to The Bachelor together. Hyland told us, "I watched him on his season and I watched him as a bartender on Paradise. It's how we connected. With him watching me on Modern Family and us connecting on Twitter and Instagram. So yeah, we do [watch the show together], and it's a lot of fun still."

If you recall, the duo tied the knot in a surprise ceremony at a California vineyard in 2022. Not only was the wedding attended by Hyland's Modern Family co-stars, but also, it was officiated by none other than Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

According to the actress, he read a traditional prayer that sparked one of her favorite moments. She told us, "I had him read this Celtic prayer because Scott's Irish and Wells is a little bit Irish I think, and so I very much do connect with my Celltic pagan ancestors. It was like this Celtic pagan prayer, and it really just includes mother nature. So he's reading this for us while we're doing this ceremony, which is also a Celtic pagan tradition, and the wind just started circling around us. It was like this Disney, colors of the wind moment."

Understandably, Ferguson was taken aback by the shift. Hyland said, "Jesse was like 'What did I do? Am I a wizard? What's happening right now?!'"

Her father, Edward James Hyland, also had a similar reaction and referenced his Harry Potter role. "My dad is Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway," Hyland said, "And he was like, 'I feel like Dumbledore right now, what's going on?' It was just this really magical moment, where mother earth just wrapped her arms around us."

Apparently, this isn't the first time the actress has experienced something like this. She also had a similar experience while working on a Disney project. She said, "I was filming something for Disney in Hawaii and this woman was doing a prayer for the set. She was just like, 'I need to say a prayer with you,' and she touched my heart. And the wind started whipping around us, so it's like a sign that I get, that I'm in the right space."

We can't wait to see what the future has in store for Adams and Hyland!
