    During the couple's rehearsal dinner at Harding's Restaurant in N.Y.C. on July 19, an eyewitness tells Us that the beautiful space was decorated with bouquets of sunflowers and featured romantic lighting with tea candles and chandeliers. The guests noshed on hors d'oeuvres, including BLTs and a short rib option, and sipped strawberry martinis with a wine spritzer.

    "There was a lot of laughter," an insider told Us.

    After dating for nearly two years, Ferguson, 37, proposed to actor Mikita, 27, in Mexico back in September.

    In March, the red-headed actor told Us why they chose the Big Apple for their wedding location. "We wanted to get married in New York, because that's where it's legal, so we want to support the state that's in support of us," the Emmy nominee explained.

    In celebration of their commitment to each other, the pair co-designed a "TieTheKnot" bowtie collection, with all proceeds going towards groups focused on LGBT rights.
