And the sparks just keep flying!

Vanessa Williams and her fiancé Jim Skrip got married Saturday evening, the actress' rep confirmed to E! News.

Family and friends were on-hand to watch the couple tie the knot before fireworks rang nearby. Just a few days before the ceremony, Williams teased her social media followers that she was going on a "road trip" for the holiday weekend. Who knew the roads led to a wedding?!

News of the couple's engagement first broke back in September when the Ugly Betty alumna showed off her stunning new piece of bling on the Queen Latifah Show.

"I got engaged. I have had a lot of good things happen while I've been on this lovely trip," she revealed to Queen Latifah. "I turned 50 when we were in rehearsal on Broadway, I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago...It has been a lot of blessings on this trip."

In recent years, Williams has also been open about her difficult past. But through the ups and downs of life, the former Miss America has remained positive and open to loving again.

"Some people enjoy pain, feeling like, 'I'm not alive if I'm not feeling anything, so I'd rather feel anger, I'd rather feel resentment and angst because I know that I'm alive,'" she shared on an episode of Oprah's Master Class. "I'd much rather say, 'You know what? I'm alive and I want to feel good.'"

This will mark the third marriage for the former beauty queen, who was previously married to Ramon Hervey ll and basketball star Rick Fox.

Congratulations to the happy couple on their exciting day!
