Shameless Star Noel Fisher Is Married to Layla Alizada


There's no shame in fawning over someone else's wedding photos—especially when they're this pretty! Shameless star Noel Fisher just recently wed actress Layla Alizada in an ultraromantic ceremony in their very own backyard. Now newlyweds, the couple just released the first photo of their big day—and it's gorgeous.

Fisher, best known for his role as Mickey Milkovich on the Showtime hit, first met Alizada on the set of the Canadian TV series Godiva back in 2005. After first spotting each other in the makeup trailer, the pair connected at the wrap party for the show, where they reportedly shared their very first kiss. Then, in the spring of 2014, Fisher finally popped the question. "Noel asked Layla to marry him when they were vacationing at the St. Regis in Bora Bora in mid-May," a source told Us Weekly at the time. "They're thrilled!"

Now that these two are officially wed, after a three-year engagement, we're sure they're even more so!

On July 15, Fisher and Alizada said their I do's in their Los Angeles backyard in front of 60 guests, according to People magazine. "We always wanted a wedding that was small and intimate," the couple told the entertainment mag. "It was a magical day and even more special having so much of it put together with the help of our loved ones."

For the big day, the bride donned a lacy Morilee wedding dress, which she showed off in her and her now-husband's wedding portrait. In the photo, Fisher and Alizada are seen sharing a smooch amongst woodland-inspired greenery, fairy string lights, and colorful blooms. Alizada adorned her curly locks with bits of baby's breath, and she looked totally smitten with her hubby, in his blue-hued Kenneth Cole suit.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests dined on a Mediterranean-inspired menu and sipped on Patricius Tokaj wine throughout the reception.

"[We’re] so grateful for the people in our lives and that everyone was able to share this day with us," said the couple.

Bride gives father-daughter dance


A Massachusetts bride gave her childhood friend and her family the gift of a lifetime at her wedding: a memory they would likely not otherwise have.

Jessica Otto's dad, Peter Otto, has cancer for the fourth time. "He isn't doing well," Jessica Otto told ABC News, adding that he only has a month or two to live.

Michaela Cook-Yotts, who has known the Otto family since she was in second grade, said it was actually her now-wife, Nora Cook-Yotts, who had the idea to give Jessica and Peter their own father-daughter dance at their wedding. "When she met Mr. Otto, she fell in love with him," Cook-Yotts said.

The couple presented the idea to Jessica Otto, who was "immediately down," said Cook-Yotts.

"Deep down, I knew it wasn't in the cards for us," Jessica said. "It was everything to me, I don’t think they will ever fully know [what] it meant to me."

Her dad, Jessica Otto said, is her best friend. "He would give you the shirt off his back, the kindest person most selfless I've ever met," she said. To know that he won't be dancing with her, or her sister, who is currently engaged, at their weddings, is painful, she added.

Jessica Otto and her dad have many shared interests, including biking, she said. They both participate in the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC), an annual bike-a-thon that benefits Dana-Farber, where Peter Otto is being treated, and goes through 46 Massachusetts towns over two days.

The duo rode together in 2014 and 2015. This year, Jessica Otto will ride on Aug. 5 and 6 alone, as her dad is not well enough to join her. The father-daughter team have fundraised around their efforts in the past, hoping that the money might somehow benefit Peter Otto.

Now, with the event coming up and her father in deteriorating health, Jessica Otto knows the money she raises won't help her family. "I used to go into this each year feeling really happy and positive," she said, "This year though, I have a lot of anger."

Still, she said, she hopes her fundraising will make a difference for someone else and she'll continue to do it as a tribute to her father. "As long as my body will let me ride, I'll ride," she said.

The missed moment of the upcoming PMC is one of the reasons memories like the one Cook-Yotts gave to the Otto family are so precious. The dance was a surprise for Peter Otto, Jessica Otto said.

"They called our names and had us come up there and he knew," she said. Peter Otto and his daughter's danced to a remix version of "Every Breath You Take." "It was so selfless of them to take time at their wedding to give us this moment."

"My dad is a man a of very few words, he doesn't express how he feels, he doesn’t say it but he shows it. He hugged us close to him," Jessica Otto said.

Cook-Yotts added, "It was the best part of the wedding and I know Nora would say the same thing. There wasn't a dry eye in the house."

How to Have a Low-Impact Wedding


We love weddings and everything that comes with them, but at the end of the day—after all of the dancing, eating, drinking, and happy tears—there’s a lot of stuff left over, stuff that often ends up in the trash. No one’s proud of it, but thankfully, there are ways to help lessen the effect your big day has on the world around you. We asked our experts for five tips to make your wedding a little more low-impact.

Shop Second-Hand

There are all sorts of ways to get what you want for your wedding without buying it brand new. There are a plethora of gently-used wedding dress sites, like OnceWed and Still White, where you can get the dress of your dreams (including designer finds like Vera Wang and Elie Saab) for a fraction of the price. Looking for items like votive candles or cloth napkins? Tradesy has an entire wedding page (that also includes menswear and bridesmaids’ dresses), and eBay just might have you covered.

Seek Recycled Materials

For the things you do need to purchase, look for those made from recycled materials. Paper Culture only uses recycled papers, and there are a huge number of artisan designers on Etsy doing the same.

Rent Instead of Buy

Of course, you’ll have the least impact by renting items instead of purchasing them at all. You know you can rent furniture, flatware, and tuxedos, but did you know you can also rent bridesmaid dresses (we love Vow to be Chic, and Rent the Runway is perfect for that on-trend mismatched look) and even your wedding dress? Again, the Rent the Runway collection is incredible for a non-traditional bride, and Borrowing Magnolia has designers like Pronovias and Hayley Paige.

Consider Vendors Carefully

If you’re really committed to a low-impact wedding, seek vendors who feel the same way. Look for vendors who give back, whether it’s donating flowers to local hospitals or donating their time to local charities. Find those who prioritize green practices, like using reusable water bottles in welcome bags. When you’re interviewing your vendors, don’t be afraid to ask! Most will be more than happy to tell you what they love to do to make the world a little brighter.

Register for Charitable Donations

Got everything you need at home? Instead of kitchen upgrades, ask your guests to donate what they might spend on a gift toward a cause you (or they!) love. You can also opt to skip those favors and instead put that money toward a bigger donation to your charity of choice.
