It’s official, you guys — Jordan Fisher and his longtime girlfriend, Ellie Woods, are married! Yep, the two stars tied the knot on Saturday, November 21, and we couldn’t be more excited for them.
Despite not sharing many details about the big day, Fisher did tweet right before, “Off to get MARRIED.”
He also posted on Instagram two weeks before the wedding, “Throwback to the first getaway with my love. Couple years later, I would propose here. And a year and half later, we’ll be spending our first turkey day here as HUSBAND AND WIFE.”
In honor of them officially becoming husband and wife, we decided to make you a complete timeline of their relationship. From how they met to when they started dating, here’s what you need to know…
When Did Ellie Woods And Jordan Fisher Meet?
It turns out, Fisher and Woods — who graduated from University of Alabama with a degree in clinical dietetics — have been friends since they were little kids!
“We’ve been best friends for over a decade before we started dating, and so there was a pretty easy transition into going into dating, and then it didn’t take any time at all for me to know she was my person,” the actor previously explained to Us Weekly.
When Did They Start Dating?
Although they met when they were 13 years old, the two stars didn’t start dating until 2017. He told J-14, “We grew up in a theatre company together in Birmingham. We were just friends. It took us a long time for all of a sudden, like a year and a half ago we were kind of like ‘Let’s see what this could be.’ I was working on Hamilton at the time. I was like ‘Come to New York. I’ll take you on some dates and let’s just figure it out.’ So, she came to New York, I took her on some dates, and that was it!”
The To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star continued, “She’s my person. That’s kind of just the bottom line. We grew up together. We have 11 years of friendship and that turned into something really beautiful and special.”
When Did Jordan Fisher Propose To Ellie Woods?
The 26-year-old popped the big question in May 2019 — getting down on one knee at her parents’ beach house.
“It’s a really special place for us, and when we started to pull into the neighborhood he was just going on about how we’ve been friends for so long, and I wasn’t really picking up on it. Then we pulled into my parents’ house and I was like, ‘What is that?’ We stopped, got out of the car and Jordan walked me to our backyard where there’s a little deck over the pond. It was the biggest surprise of my life!” Woods told People about the proposal. “I’m a very hard person to surprise so the fact that he pulled it off, kudos to you, babe.”
As for why he chose that spot, Fisher explained to Us Weekly, “She’s a perfect partner for me. We’re in each other’s corner and we’re here for each other in very different fields. It’s so awesome. She’s wonderful. I fell in love with her in Sandestin, Florida, in Panhandle. So, she grew up going there for every vacation — her family has a little vacation spot down there — and so that was our first getaway. That was our first vacation together, right when we started dating, and that’s when I knew then, ‘I’m going to propose to her here. This is the woman I want to be with, and I’m going to propose to her here.’”
Who Exactly Is Ellie Woods?
Woods has actually launched her own YouTube channel, which has more than 4,000 subscribers already (with only five videos posted so far!). Plus, based on her Instagram, she loves the outdoors and nature.
