Hello, Chicago! Amy Schumer wrapped filming in Hawaii just in time to serve as a bridesmaid in her friend’s wedding in the Windy City.

Schumer, 35, who has been shooting the film Mother/Daughter with Goldie Hawn, traded in her luau attire for a strapless bridesmaid dress on Saturday, August 13. In a post-wedding photo, she posed alongside the newlyweds, Tara and Rusty Fitton, and her boyfriend Ben Hanisch.

“Congratulations to @tara_alana and @rustolleum in the best wedding ever,” the stand-up comedian and actress captioned the black and white image. “Very proud to be a bmaid.”

Along with celebrating her upcoming movie and the union of her friends, this past weekend also marked another milestone… Schumer’s boyfriend’s birthday! “Happy 30th birthday to one of our bestest friends @benhanisch,” the new bride shared on Instagram. The foursome was all smiles during the wedding festivities.

Schumer has been dating Hanisch since late 2015. In July, she opened up to Marie Claire about her relationship insecurities. “Being in love is the scariest thing in the world,” she admitted. “You want to f-ing cry and scream. I can’t handle it. Every time we say good-bye, I think, ‘This will have been a nice last week together,’ or I tell myself nothing is real and he’s going to leave me and tell me he never loved me. I feel so bad for him. How exhausting it must be dating me.”

Despite Schumer’s self-doubt, she seems to be doing something right. She will celebrate her one-year dating anniversary with Hanisch later this year.
