The Bachelor scores yet another love story! Girls leading lady Allison Williams stopped by Bachelor Live Monday night to reveal her and her husband Ricky Van Veen's special love for the hit ACB show. The newlywed couldn't help but gush about how she met her College Humor co-founder love, and how watching The Bachelor played a major role!
If Valentine's Day is too long to wait to watch the result of yet another success from Bachelor love story history, then look no further than the love story between this Girls leading lady, who shared her own version of a Bachelor happy ending! The talented actress sat down with seasoned Bachelor host Chris Harrison to discuss how a Bachelor viewing party led her to meeting her forever love, E! News reports. "I would not be married to my husband if it weren't for this show. We went to a weekly viewing party every week, and it was like a big group date, but with both genders equally distributed...it was how we met up," said the hilarious Williams. The HBO star also revealed how her other half popped the question during one of The Bachelor's viewing parties. "So where the viewing party is, at my friend Lee Eisenberg's house...and he has a couch where we always watch the show, and that's where Ricky proposed to me, was on Lee Eisenberg's couch." Talk about a true Hollywood ending!

When the actress isn't busy playing a bride in the anticipated all-new season of the hit HBO show, Williams is playing one in real life! The recently married Mrs. Van Veen tied the knot with her longtime love in an ultra-secret Wyoming ceremony back in September. The high-profile nuptials included a guest list full of A-list stars including, Katy Perry, John Mayer, Andy Cohen, and Lena Dunham. Also among some of the ceremony's top names included Oscar-winning actor, Tom Hanks, who was ordained to officiate the couple for their special occasion. "If you want to call me the Right Reverend Tom Hanks, I think you should," Hanks joked to Extra at the time.
But perhaps the most talked about feature of the TV screen star's big day was her breathtaking Oscar de la Renta wedding dress. The Girls star took to Instagram to showcase her gorgeous, one-of-a-kind, long-sleeve illusion gown. The photo, taken by legendary wedding photographer Christian Oth, shows Williams in front of the breathtaking Wyoming backdrop with the caption, "One more. This pretty much sums up my feelings about the whole weekend. Thank you all for the well-wishes, and thanks to everyone who made it possible. @christianothstudio"
The new bride also shared an Instagram photo commenting on her anticipated debut as a chic boho bride for the Girls season 5 premiere as her onscreen alter ego, Marnie. The side-by-side photo shows Marnie decked out in a relaxed bohemian style-wedding gown, while the adjacent photo shows off Williams' real-life wedding style displaying a sweet contrast between the two gorgeous bridal gowns. The "two-time" bride wrote, "Twice a bride in one year. What an odd accomplishment, and what a difference between 'em. @girlshbo"
