Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland took to Instagram to celebrate her second engagement anniversary with then fiancé Wells Adams on July 8, 2021.

The picture saw Hyland and Adam embracing one another while sharing a passionate smooch. Her engagement ring shined as she cupped her partner's face in affection, and he held her close by her waist. 

The brown natural setting from a bamboo hut made a splendid backdrop for the lovebirds, while Hyland's short and sweet caption perfectly accompanied the adorable love-filled snap.

The 31-year-old lamented the pandemic, sharing how they would have been married for an entire year if it had not forced them to postpone the wedding.

Family, friends, and followers quickly poured their well-wishes for the duo through the comment section.

Celebrity hairstylist Ryan Richman commented with a heart-eyed emoji, while musician Paul McDonald penned, "So happy for you guys!!!" Fellow actress Kimberley Daugherty also commented, writing she loved the pair.

Wells Adams Followed Suit for Engagement Anniversary

Soon after Hyland announced their anniversary, her partner followed suit, posting a picture on his Instagram and dedicating a heartfelt message. 

Unlike his fiancée, Adams uploaded a solo picture of Hyland, looking fabulous in night light in front of the blurred Eiffel tower. 

In the caption, The Bachelorette alum reflected on how proposing to her was the best decision of his life and shared that the photo was his favorite one.

Reciprocating the affection, Hyland commented on the post, revealing she couldn't wait to marry him. 

And their fans, too, couldn't help but urge the adorable couple to get married. One fan suggested, "Get married already! Don’t put living on hold! We’re back to our 'normal' In SC! Marry her already." 

Another shed light on the long-lasting turbulence of COVID-19 and quipped how the insanity would never calm down. Then he added, "Live your life free of fear and marry the woman you love."

Sarah Hyland's Wedding Was Planned for 2020

Hyland and Adams would indeed already be a married couple in 2021 if not for the pandemic.

They started dating in October 2017 after bonding through social media. Then on July 16, 2019, the twosome got engaged. They were to marry in 2020, but the pandemic made the plan impossible.

Adams gushed about their wedding plans during an interview with Access Hollywood in July 2021.

After talking about how he would join Katie Thurston in The Bachelorette, he revealed that he and his fiancée were unlikely to tie the knot until 2022. The radio DJ also clarified that their wedding wouldn't be televised.

The Wedding Finally Happened in 2022

As Adams said, it really needed to be 2022 for the pair to tie the knot — they married on August 20, 2022, in a wedding ceremony officiated by Hyland's former co-star Tyler Ferguson at Sunstone Winery near Santa Barbara, California. 

The actress wore a shoulder-less white wedding gown, completing her looks with a white veil and with diamond earrings, while her husband donned a formal suit. They wept in happiness as they exchanged vows at the altar in front of about 150 guests. 

Fellow Modern Family cast members, including Sofia Vergara, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, and Julie Bowen, had attended the nuptials, almost making the wedding like a small show reunion. "It was magical getting to celebrate her special day with her and with everyone," Vergara later told People regarding the reunion. 

Before Adams, Hyland was dating Dominic Sherwood. Her ex-boyfriends include Max Ehrich and Matt Prokop.
