Just days after returning from her "heavenly" Italian honeymoon with new husband Ricky Van Veen, actress Allison Williams got back to reality last week.

The Girls star was pictured walking her dog Moxie in New York – flashing some new bling thanks to her recent wedding.

With her platinum engagement band turned inward, Allison's sleek diamond eternity ring was clearly visible, set off perfectly by a bright red autumn manicure.


Allison and College Humor founder Ricky tied the knot in Saratoga, Wyoming, last month, with the bride in a stunning custom-made Oscar de la Renta gown.

In order to throw paps off the scent and give the couple some privacy on their big day, a second decoy wedding site was set up a few miles away from the actual venue at Brush Creek Ranch.

Allison and Ricky's 200-strong guest list included Mindy Kaling, Lena Dunham, Katy Perry, John Mayer and Diane Von Furstenberg, with many guests flying to LA together the next morning for the Emmys.

Tom Hanks was even on hand to officiate the ceremony for Allison and Ricky, who met back in 2011.

After celebrating with family and friends, the newlyweds headed off to Portofino, Italy for their honeymoon, with Allison posting this gorgeous snap shortly after their return to the US.

"Honeymoon was Heavenly and I'm Happy to be Home," she wrote alongside the photo of herself posing against a beautiful moonlit backdrop.

We have serious life envy right now.


Allison Williams is the latest in a string of celebrity couples to pull off a top secret wedding this year… and we have to say, she did a very good job.

Even Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux had a few paparazzi present at their July nuptials, despite going to excessive measures to keep things under wraps.

So how did Allison and her new husband, College Humor founder Ricky Van Veen, manage to get married in (relative) peace last Saturday? By setting up a decoy venue, of course.

News of Allison and Ricky's wedding plans leaked to the press last week, but even guests themselves weren't certain of the location until the last minute.

All attendees were told to fly into Denver, a 3.5 hour drive from the wedding's actual location at Brush Creek Ranch in Saratoga, Wyoming.

In order to throw paps off the scent, a second decoy site was set up a few miles away by Allison's wedding planners, Rafanelli Events.

The high-end company also organised the weddings of both Chelsea Clinton and Matt Damon, so they're no strangers to A-list events.

Allison and Ricky's star-studded guest list reportedly included Mindy Kaling, Lena Dunham, Katy Perry, John Mayer and Diane Von Furstenberg, with many guests flying to LA together the next morning for the Emmys.

Also present were Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, who plays Allison's on-screen mother in Girls. Tom even officiated the ceremony for the happy couple – how cool?!

Allison was walked down the aisle by her news anchor father Brian Williams, who recently returned to NBC following a suspension for reportedly fabricating a story about his experience in Iraq in 2003.

The Peter Pan actress admitted earlier this year that "current events" had forced her and Ricky to put their wedding plans on hold, something many took to be a reference to her father's suspension.


According to some, Allison Willaims is said to be marrying her boyfriend Ricky Van Veen 'way out west' this weeknd. 

The two are said to have planned a "top secret ceremony" with a very famous guest list and the big day is set to go ahead this weekend. 

Ricky, a co-founder of College Humour and Allison got engaged last year after dating for three years. The 27-year old actress had said at the time that she and Ricky were very serious and she looked forward to settling down and starting a family with him soon. She told Glamour magazine:

"I'd love to be a mom- and not have to bring my kids into my trailer," she also noted that if need be she would "walk away" from her acting career in lieu of staring a family. 

A source told Page Six about the pair's plans for this weekend:

“The wedding is being kept so secret that guests are being asked to fly to Denver, where they will be picked up and taken to the location, which is thought to be somewhere in Wyoming."

Guests are expected to include Bruce Springsteen, Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller, and Williams’ “Girls” castmates Lena Dunham, Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke. Tom Hanks and his wife Rita, who played the mother of Allison's character on girls, are also expected to make an appearance. 

“The accommodations for all guests are being paid for and then many of the guests are flying to LA together for Sunday’s Emmys," the source added. 

Allison and Ricky were said to have delayed their wedding plans until now as her father, a news anchor in the US, was forced to step down from his position as host of the series Nightly News

Earlier this year Allion commented on the scandal saying:

"This has been a really hard time. Obviously [it’s] toughest on my dad, who is sort of bearing the full burden of the responsibility for it. Current events started happening so that derailed [wedding plans] a little bit.”
