Emmy Rossum is officially married. The Shameless star and director Sam Esmail exchanged vows in a New York City wedding ceremony over Memorial Day weekend on Sunday, May 28.

People, which first confirmed the news, reported that Rossum and Esmail married at the Conservative Synagogue in Midtown Manhattan. Guests included Hilary Swank, Robert Downey Jr., William H. Macy, Rami Malek, and Christian Slater.

Rossum previously confirmed that she had selected beloved American designer Carolina Herrera to customize her wedding gown. ”Yeah, she’ll be making it,” the actress told E! News. “That’s all I’ll say!” Photos subsequently showed the star in a stunning off-the-shoulder gown.

On Saturday, the bride and groom took rehearsal photos at Sutton Place Park with their family members and friends. The bride looked lovely in a white, lace midi dress while her fiancé wore a suit on the waterfront.

Email, 39, directed Rossum, 30, in a 2014 movie called Comet. Two years later, they were engaged. “I happened to be in the bathtub when it happened,” the Phantom of the Opera actress told Chelsea Handler of the proposal. “Then I realized that it was happening, and then I got out of the bathtub because I didn’t want the story to be that I was in the bathtub when it was happening. And then I got cold as it was still going on, got back in the bathtub. It was a comedy of errors, but it all worked out.”

In January 2016, Esmail graciously thanked his future wife while accepting a Golden Globe for his television series Mr. Robot. “More importantly, I gotta thank you for being my best friend,” the groom noted. “And I love you.”
