Too funny! Camilla Luddington famously married Justin Chambers on Grey’s Anatomy as Jo Wilson and Alex Karev last season, but funny enough, the actress’ real-life fiancé, Matthew Alan, was a little jealous of their on-screen nuptials.
“It was weird. I was leaving that morning and he was like, ‘Bye! Good luck with your wedding to someone else,'” Camilla, 34, recalled to Entertainment Tonight in a new interview. “It’s very weird, [but] he’s an actor too so he understands.”
The best part? He really loved the place where the TV wedding — which aired in May — took place. “What’s funny is we shot our TV wedding at a place called Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA, and Matt came to visit the set and he stepped on and we were like, ‘Damn!'” she joked. “Because it was so gorgeous and they do weddings there and he was like, ‘We could have done it here, but now you and Alex have taken it!'”
They even joked about the idea of having their actual wedding there. “The whole wedding itself was absolutely gorgeous on Grey’s… I mean, we even joked about, ‘Hey should we just run down the aisle and just quickly say our vows to the actor priest and be done with it?'” she laughed. “It was so gorgeous. There were definitely elements that I kind of wanted to steal for my wedding, but I shall make them both very different.”
Luckily for Camilla, making them different shouldn’t be a problem! “When we were picking out dresses, I tried to avoid things I wanted in real life,” she explained to ET last month. “Which did work out because I always thought Jo would wear a short wedding dress. So, getting married doesn’t feel in any way spoiled or like I’ve already done it on TV.” Plus, her real wedding will likely have her one-year-old daughter, Hayden, as the flower girl!
Don’t worry, we won’t have to wait much longer for their special day either! “Matt and I have really been discussing it the past month, because we have been putting it on off, not on purpose, but we’ve been just both so busy,” she said. “We’ve just started talking about it and about [doing it] next summer.” We wonder if the entire Grey’s cast will be invited!
