Danielle Fishel, 'Boy Meets World' Star, Marries College Sweetheart Tim Belusko
Former Boy Meets World star and current Girl Meets World star Danielle Fishel married her longtime boyfriend Tim Belusko on Saturday in a short ceremony at former Vibiana cathedral in Los Angeles.
10/19/13 was one of the most amazing days of my life. The love in the room was palpable and overwhelming in the best way possible. #love

“The most important thing is that the day feels authentic to us. We’re traditional, but also a bit wacky,” Fishel had said about the wedding.
Fishel, 32, met Belusko, 25, when she decided to go back to college five years ago. In fact, Fishel announced her engagement on her official Tumblr while simultaneously announcing that she had officially graduated college.
“After my 27th birthday, I made the decision to stop letting fear be a factor in fulfilling my dreams and living the life I wanted, so with a little encouragement from friends and family, I enrolled… Yes, I was sometimes the oldest person in class, I was whispered about many times, and I did forget how to do a few math equations. But I persevered and sometimes I wasn’t the oldest person in the class, some of the whisperers became good friends, and I did so well in math, I even became a tutor. And that is how I met my fiancé,” Fishel wrote in December of 2012.

Fishel isn’t the only Boy Meets World star to get married this weekend. Co-star Rider Strong tied the knot on Sunday in a camp-themed wedding weekend in Oregon. In a scheduling snafu, the co-stars were prevented from attending each other’s weddings, something Strong insists is his fault.
“[Danielle] chose the date first,” Strong told E! News.
Fishel’s on-screen soul mate and husband, Ben Savage (who started as Cory Matthews opposite Fishel's Topanga on Boy Meets World), was reportedly one of the 200 guests at the wedding. Savage, who Fishel endearingly calls her “first husband,” will star alongside the bride in the upcoming Boy Meets World spinoff, Girl Meets World.
Fishel is reportedly off to Maui for her honeymoon and will return to L.A. to begin filming Girl Meets World in November.
