The Emily in Paris star broke the big news on Instagram with stunning photos from their secret nuptials.
Congratulations are in order for Lily Collins! The Emily in Paris star married her longtime love, director Charlie McDowell, in a secret ceremony in Dunton Hot Springs, Colorado, over the holiday weekend.
Collins confirmed the news of her nuptials on Instagram, where she shared a series of stunning photos from the pair’s wedding. The bride wore an elegant long-sleeved, lace-embellished Ralph Lauren gown for her special day, while the groom looked dapper in a classic black tuxedo.
In her first post, Collins shared an image of the pair kissing against the rustic, woodsy backdrop that set the scene for their ceremony. “I’ve never wanted to be someone’s someone more than I do yours, and now I get to be your wife,” Collins wrote alongside the post. “On September 4th, 2021 we officially became each other’s forever. I love you beyond @charliemcdowell.”
In another post, Collins shared a close-up of her classic bridal look, which included a delicate hooded cape. The actress pulled her hair into a sleek bun with her strands parted down the middle and wore a natural makeup look to accompany the statement dress. “Never been happier,” Collins captioned the sweet snapshot.
Collins and McDowell became engaged last year when the writer-director proposed to the actress during a quarantine cross-country road trip.
“I’ve been waiting my lifetime for you and I can’t wait to spend our lifetime together,” Collins wrote alongside another photo of the two smooching. McDowell also shared the pair’s engagement news on social media, writing alongside a snap of Collins, “In a time of uncertainty and darkness you have illuminated my life. I will forever cherish my adventure with you. 💍🎉”
