Elizabeth Gillies is a married woman now. The 'Dynasty' star left fans surprised as the news of her wedding spilled on social media with extravagant photos. The singer and actress met producer and composer Michael Corcoran years ago, but it took a while before they started dating. "I always had a crush on him," Liz told Vogue. "But I played it cool."

The 27-year-old actress married her beau in New Jersey on August 8 in the presence of their families. As per reports, their marriage was postponed from April due to the pandemic. "Initially, we planned on postponing a year," Liz told Vogue about their wedding. "Then, as time went on, we decided a big wedding was no longer something that made sense for us. The virus really put things into perspective. That being said, we did want to get married as long as it could be done in a safe and intimate setting with a group that we trusted."

The pair had been dating for six years before they decided to get hitched. As per the Vogue report, Liz would fly on the weekend to see Michael and their dogs in Los Angeles as she had been working in Atlanta for the past two years. "Once Dynasty got picked up for a third season, I not-so-subtly suggested that he relocate so that we could start a new chapter in Atlanta," Liz said. "Luckily, he agreed, and we bought a house together. He’s a California guy through and through, so it was a big deal for him to leave LA and move to the Southeast."

Gillies stepped out in a beautiful gown by Britt Wood Designs. She matched it with Jimmy Choo shoes and wore an Oscar De La Renta veil for the ceremony. The couple drove up with their dogs in a giant Class A RV and had the ceremony with 10 close friends and family in attendance. "We’d never driven one before, so the whole thing was a bit insane, but Michael did a great job," Liz said. "We got tested before we left and quarantined with my family for two weeks before the wedding. With everything going on, it felt so nice to be in my childhood home with nothing to do but relax leading up to the big day. We cooked and took the dogs for long walks and really just enjoyed each other’s company. It felt good to slow down. Overall, we were very fortunate to be able to safely spend this time with family. It was incredibly special."

No sooner did the pictures from her wedding started circulating on social media, fans couldn't help but be dazzled. However, many couldn't wrap their heads around the age difference — how Gillies was just 27 but Corcoran was 47. "Just found out that Liz Gillies married a man 20 years older than her who she met when she was 17 doing Victorious," one fan said. Another posted, "Now how did THIS dude get THE Liz gillies to marry him."

One fan said, "Something about Liz Gillies marrying a 50-year-old frequent Dan Schneider collaborator doesn’t sit right with me," and another posted, "Me pretending like Liz Gillies didn’t get married to a 47 yr old ugly man </3." One even went on to post: "Liz gillies met her husband when she was 15 and he was 36. now they're married and he's 47. goals? or ew."
