Surprise! "Girls" Star Zosia Mamet & Evan Jonigkeit Are Married
From "Girl" to bride! Zosia Mamet, the actress best known for playing Shoshanna Shapiro in Girls, married her longtime boyfriend, actor Evan Jonigkeit (of X-Men: Days of Future Past), this weekend! The wedding news comes as quite a surprise, as Mamet and Jonigkeit never even announced an engagement.
The ceremony was an intimate one, but we do know that Mamet ditched the veil and opted for a seriously gorgeous bridal 'do: Her hairstylist, Tommy Buckett from Serge Normant, shared a shot of Mamet's long blonde locks woven into a braided, half-up, half-down hairstyle and adorned with blooms in shades of pink, purple, and red.
"Sometimes you just don't need a veil," Buckett captioned the photo. "Congrats @zosiamamet to being the girl that has never been traditional." You can say that again! The image also gives a sneak peek at the bride's jewelry: multiple-stranded necklaces dripping with jewels and double earrings to match.
Mamet herself posted an Instagram depicting two adorable bride-and-groom rubber ducks in front of a banner reading "E + Z" (for Evan + Zosia) in a heart. "@evanj550 my best friend, my soulmate, my HUSBAND, I love you," she wrote. "Here's to forever and a day". Jonigkeit shared the same shot, with the caption "Last night I married my best friend."
In another photo Buckett shared, someone (perhaps the groom), demonstrates what a fun day it was: "Shame Sunday wedding edition. #shamesunday #wildwedding," jokes the caption. We spy some pretty autumnal centerpieces, rose, and paper cranes, a good-luck symbol in weddings.
No word yet on the guest list, but we think it's safe to assume Mamet's Girls costars Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, and Jemima Kirke, were there. After all, the crew just finished filming the series finale a few days ago, meaning they'd have even more reason to celebrate. Plus, Dunham, Mamet, and Kirke all attended Williams's Wyoming wedding to Ricky Van Veen almost exactly a year ago. Perhaps they even served in the wedding party: We know Dunham is a pro at it, with multiple turns as bridesmaid (and at least one awesome wedding toast!) under her belt.
Mamet met Jonigkeit in 2013 when they costarred in the off-Broadway play Really Really. "Within weeks we had discussed almost every serious topic: life, love, family, the world," Mamet wrote in a 2015 column for Glamour. We were thrown into some pretty high-pressure situations very early on-and found that we made a great team. With him I felt safe, and with him I started sharing, confiding the kinds of things I used to exclusively tell my friends."
The two moved in together in 2014. "I feel the bond between my boyfriend and me strengthen every time I share with him," Mamet wrote. "We talk through issues in real time, without any noise from the outside world. It is honest and true. It is, I think, the future."
Congratulations, girl, and best wishes for a happy future!
