Rider Strong, the former Boy Meets World star, is marrying his fiancée, Alexandra Barreto in Oregon this Sunday.
“I'm incredibly lucky to be getting married to my best friend and partner-in-crime,” the 33-year-old actor told People magazine Thursday.
Strong starred as Shawn Hunter in Boy Meets World and met Barreto while starring on the short-lived series Pepper Dennis in 2006. They also starred in the horror movie Tooth and Nail that same year.
Strong said that the wedding will have a summer camp atmosphere, reports E! News. “It's going to be a camp-themed weekend with everyone sleeping in bunks, a ropes course, games, a talent show...let's hope it doesn't rain too much,” he told the site.
Barreto and Strong became engaged in December 2012. He actually made her engagement ring himself.
He told People that he spent “weeks” making it, rather than going to a jeweler. “I carved the ring out of wax, cast it in white gold and had my dad make a wooden ring box for me. My dad made my mom's ring, so I was following in his footsteps,” he told the magazine.
