Lydia Hearst must be feeling more alive than ever! The 31-year old actress married Walking Dead after-show host Chris Hardwick on Saturday, August 20, in Pasadena, California.

According to People, the famous duo – who have been together since 2014 – exchanged vows in front of about 450 guests. The bride wore a custom, white and pink layered gown designed by Christian Siriano. Her customized pave crystal Stuart Weitzman heels were gifted to her by actress Michelle Trachtenberg.

Hardwick, 44, and his new wife have a love for science fiction. With the help of celebrity wedding planner, Mindy Weiss, they managed to incorporate sci-fi elements into their special day. They served wedding guests water bottles with labels featuring their initials in the shape of Doctor Who’s TARDIS.

Their invitations let wedding guests know that the nuptials would be anything but ordinary.

A week before the wedding, Hearst gave followers a sneak peek of her stunning wedding gown. She posted a black and white photo on Instagram, showing off the back of the shimmering dress. “I am truly blessed to have you in my life @hardwick,” she captioned the image. “I love you, and I will never stop loving you. I cannot wait to marry you in one week.”

On the evening before the nuptials, Hardwick shared a photo from the couple’s wedding rehearsal. “Wedding rehearsal! #AllTheEmoji,” he captioned the sweet image taken by the bride’s mother, Patricia Hearst.

The talented duo got engaged back on September 13, 2015. Hardwick asked Hearst to be his bride during the Emmy Awards, around the same time he won an award for his late-night Comedy Central show @midnight. He proposed with a ring passed down by Hearst’s grandmother.

About a month before the nuptials, Hearst penned a love note to her future husband. “You are a constant source of inspiration and give me reason to strive for more of everything,” she posted on Instagram. “With you, my heart has finally found a home, and my heart is forever yours. I just love EVERYTHING about you, and cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you!!!”
