Surprise weddings must run in the Rivera’s family.

“Glee” star Naya Rivera’s younger brother and Oakland Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera surprised some friends and family over the weekend by marrying his fiancé Siera just one day after proposing.

“This past Sunday, October 18th, 2015, my best friend and soulmate, Mychal Rivera, made me his fiancé at a beautiful California winery during the breezy autumn sunset with our families holding hands, watching behind wells of happy tears,” Siera Rivera wrote in a post on Instagram. “The morning after the proposal, he & I woke up & decided, ‘Let's get married today!!!’ So, we jumped up & ran to courthouse.”

This past Sunday, October 18th, 2015, my best friend and soulmate, Mychal Rivera, made me his fiancé at a beautiful California winery during the breezy autumn sunset with our families holding hands, watching behind wells of happy tears. The morning after the proposal, he & I woke up & decided, "Let's get married today!!!" So, we jumped up & ran to courthouse. October 19th, 2015 is the day we became one. I'm still swooned by all of this happening spare of the moment. & I wouldn't haven't it any other way. It’s exactly what our life together is like...spontaneous. We lead with our hearts, no matter how unrealistic or unexpected it may seem to others. God’s timing always prevails, & He never fails to reveal when it’s just right. Together we’ve laid our rock solid foundation with God’s wisdom and grace, & now it’s time to build up from here. If life with my husband feels this amazing already, a lifetime with him must truly be like heaven on earth.

She went on to say that she “wouldn’t have it any other way.”

“It’s exactly what our life together is like...spontaneous. We lead with our hearts, no matter how unrealistic or unexpected it may seem to others,” Siera wrote.

Naya Rivera, who recently welcomed her first son Josey, surprised fans more than a year ago when she married actor Ryan Dorsey in Mexico.

She has not shared her congratulations to the newlyweds, though she tweeted about being in Oakland over the weekend.

A Twitter account that shares news about the actress also shared some behind-the-scenes photos of Mychal and Siera’s engagement and wedding celebration.
