If you are a huge fan of New York comic drama troupe Impractical Jokers, you must be well aware of their weird pranks. One of their never anticipated punishments in the annals of Jokers’ history was James Murray‘s very short marriage with Sal Vulcano‘s sister Jenna Vulcano.
Well, their prank marriage was indeed legal but the duo was not a couple. However, aside from the prank, James is indeed married, to his real girlfriend.
Today let’s take a close look at the comedian’s personal life and find out who is James Murray’s wife, the real one.
James Murray married girlfriend Melyssa Davies: Details on their Wedding
After months and months of anticipation, James finally exchanged vows with the love of his life, Melyssa Davies. They tied the knot on September 25th, 2020, a few days earlier than what they had planned.
The beautiful ceremony took place at Lake House Inn, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Many of their friends and family were in attendance to bless the new couple. Speaking of guests, all of James’s co-stars from the Impractical Jokers were present.
As for the wedding dress, Melyssa wore a white gown with a long veil and a medium-length train. Her veil consisted of a few flowers embedded in it. Apart from the bride, James too looked handsome as hell. He wore a black suit, a bowtie, and his signature glasses.
James got engaged to Melyssa in 2019
People exclusively confirmed Murray got engaged to his girlfriend-turned-fiancee Melyssa Davies on 30th August 2019. He proposed Davies with a stunning Tiffany & Co. solitaire round diamond outside the home they acquired together in New Jersey.
On the same day, Murray also announced the big news with an Instagram post showing Davies’ engagement ring. He wrote in the photo, “Best day of my life.”
James told that it wasn’t his original plan to pop the question. He initially thought about proposing to her while both of them were on a vacation in Turks and Caicos. However, it didn’t work out and they canceled the trip after Hurricane Dorian made landfall in the Bahamas.
Murray spent nearly a decade with the popular TV series Jokers. But the entertainer told “getting engaged to Melyssa is the best thing that’s ever happened to me”
How did the two first meet?
James first came across Melyssa at his debut novel Awakend‘s party back in June 2018. It was held in New York. The two immediately hit it off. He told People,
We hit it off that night immediately. We had immediate chemistry and our relationship was immediately different than any other I’ve had in my life
The two celebrated their first date in the restaurant located in Buddhakan, in New York. They later also went out on several vacations together.
Earlier on, James and his then-fiance now-wife Melyssa had planned on marrying on 29th September 2020, as per MyRegistry but seem as if the dates were shifted a little.
Besides, both of them are dog lovers and own a pet puppy named, Penny.
Who is James Murray’s wife Melyssa Davies?
We’re sure many of you are still not aware of this beautiful lady but fret not, we got you covered. Davies is a nurse who graduated from nursing school in 2019.
Upon graduation, James’ spouse started working in the geriatric and hospice care department. As for her social media presence, Davies has an Instagram account that is kept on private. Seems like the celebrity spouse doesn’t really like outside intrusion in her life. Besides, her Insta bio reads, “Just a tall, lanky brunette who doesn’t want to buy your hair care products.”
Murray and ex-wife Jenna Vulcano lawful wedding: A Revenge on Sal Vulcano
The Impractical Jokers consist of four members James, Sal, Joe Gatto, and Brian Quinn. The foursome is widely known for their hilarious jokes and pranks on each other.
It was during one of these pranks when James married Sal’s sister Jenna. His sister already featured in a few episodes before her appearance as a bride in the Season 3rd episode, Brother-in-Loss.
James and Vulcano got married on 13th March 2014 in a legitimate ceremony. The couple walked down the aisle in front of their friends and families. The video was also uploaded on the Impractical Joker YouTube channel.
The video is pretty interesting if you want to check it out:
The clip also showed James and Jenna signing their marriage application at the City Clerk’s office. After their ritual wedding, the two also shared a sweet kiss.
A little back story, the ceremony happened because Murray wanted to take his revenge for the skydiving punishment Sal gave him previously in the season one finale.
Before the ceremony even begun, Sal was blindfolded. His body was wrapped and mouth sealed with tape. He couldn’t even object to his beloved sister Jenna’s marriage with James.
Jenna and James annulled the wedding right after the honeymoon night
James and Jenna called it quits just after their honeymoon night. The comedian tweeted,
Oh, 2 more things. Yes I legally married Sal’s sister, no joke. And yes we annulled the marriage…after the honeymoon night! Revenge rocks.
