In case you missed the exciting news, Troian Bellisario married Suits actor Patrick J. Adams in a dreamy, fort-themed wedding in southern California on Saturday, December 10! And while many of the bride’s Pretty Little Liars co-stars were present at the ceremony – including Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Keegan Allen, Tyler Blackburn, Ian Harding, Sasha Pieterse, and executive producer I. Marlene King — one beloved cast member was noticeably missing: Shay Mitchell!
So where was she, exactly? That’s what a lot of fans were wondering as the perused the group’s stream of photos and videos, but Shay immediately cleared up any confusion about her absence via her official Snapchat account. The 29-year-old actress, who is currently on location in Boston — hard at work on the set of the horror film Cadaver — revealed that a scheduling conflict arose and she couldn’t slip away in time to attend the ceremony. However, Shay was so bummed about missing out on her friend’s nuptials that she took to Instagram to express her regret and sadness — and to wish the beautiful newlyweds all the happiness in the world!
Check out her incredibly thoughtful note below:
“To my big sister T on her wedding day. I love that we were able to close one very important chapter of our lives together and I am devastated not to be there as you embark on your next one. As I sit here thinking about our friendship and journey I am reminded of how much I love, cherish and admire you. I know you and Patrick will have the most special day and I can’t wait to celebrate you two as a married couple.”
Aw! How sweet is that? Considering Shay and Troian are good pals — not only have they worked together for seven years, but Shay even flew out to Italy earlier this year to partake in Troian’s bachelorette party festivities – she must have been really disappointed to have to skip out on a. all the fun, and b. the chance to reunite with her other PLL castmates. Hopefully they meet up for a new adventure soon!
