Williams twitted "Road trip for the holiday weekend," two days before tying the knot. "Happy 4th".

Williams met Skrip in Egypt in 2013. She once told "You go across the world to find somebody who's six hours away."

The pair got engaged in 2014. And when announcing her engagement on the Queen Latifah Show in September 2014 she said: "I have had a lot of good things happen... I turned 50 when we were in rehearsal on Broadway, I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It has been a lot of blessings on this trip."

Wishing them love and happiness.

    What does marries white mean? Ms. Williams married a person, who cares about the rest. I wish I could get my hands on the person who wrote this article!
