Badgley’s new sister-in-law Lola Kirke posted an image with both the bride and other sibling, Girls actress Jemima Kirke.

“When someone gets married in a courthouse, it’s really an open invitation to everyone but the beautiful bride to explore all that fashion has to offer,” the Mistress America actress shared on Instagram. “Here, I try a look simply called ‘Pants,’ as Cassius goes for ‘That Dude from #incubus’ and Jemima experiments with ‘Off to Therapy!’ Congratulations @dominokirke. We love you.”

The pair celebrated their newfound nuptials with an intimate party at Maison May in Brooklyn.

Love these lovebirds and their love. Congratulations babes. ✨💖✨

Badgley, who played Dan Humphrey in the beloved CW series, first started dating Kirke in 2014. Two years later, Badgley briefly touched on the topic of marriage in an interview with Vice.

“Not that dates lead to marriage, but everyone has that moment where they fantasize ‘Could I? Kids? Maybe?’” he said of dating. “You have to have some kind of fundamental agreement on the nature of reality I think.”
