Storms currently plays Maxie Jones on the ABC soap, where Barash previously appeared from 2007 to May of this year. The former co-stars are now partners in life. The duo got hitched two months ago in a small ceremony in Las Vegas.

Barash went into detail with People, where he revealed everything that led up to the event. Apparently, Barash's father was in Sin City participating in a poker tournament.

When they heard he got eliminated, he and Storms looked at each other and said, "Wanna go to Vegas and get married?!"

That afternoon, Barash proposed "with a blue raspberry Ring Pop in hand at a gas station in Wrightwood, California."

It doesn't get much simpler than that. After cluing in their parents, they planned their nuptials with the folks at Caesar's. There were 10 people in attendance as the duo said, "I do."

Barash said, "All I remember was my face feeling like Niagara Falls, stomping on the glass — the one religious element he chose to include — and Zeppelin's 'Over the Hills and Far Away' playing as we walked down the aisle. Perfection."

They finished the evening with a great dinner and some roulette. It proved to be their lucky day because the couple repeatedly won at the table. What a great way to start a lifelong union.
