Actor Rider Strong is getting married on Sunday, October 20 to his fiancee Alexandra Barreto and it's going to be done in a summer camp in Oregon complete with "bunks, a ropes course, games, a talent show." It will be a fun weekend for the guests when they witness the 33-year-old "Boy Meets World" star and his wife-to-be finally tying the knot after many years together.
"I'm incredibly lucky to be getting married to my best friend and partner in crime," said the excited groom. Strong met his future bride back in 2006 when they worked as co-stars on TV series "Pepper Dennis" and later that year on the horror flick "Tooth and Nail".
With his upcoming camp-themed wedding ceremony, Strong is proving to be a master crafter of memorable moments between him and his longtime girlfriend. When he proposed to Barreto in December last year in his childhood home in Northern California, he did so not just with any engagement ring but with something that he made himself with the help of "an old-school jeweler who works out of his basement in Echo Park" in Los Angeles.
"I spent weeks making the ring in secret. I carved the ring out of wax, cast it in white gold and had my dad make a wooden ring box for me," revealed the actor about the special engagement ring. He apparently got the inspiration from his father who also personally made a ring when he proposed to Strong's mom.
