As previously reported, the couple tied the knot in October 2010, in a Los Angeles botanical garden, surrounded by a small group of family and close friends. Though the new mom described the wedding as “beautiful, moving and personal,” People reported at the time, she also revealed putting the wedding together was almost as much fun and rewarding as the main event.

“It was such a fun process,” the actress said. “We didn’t hire a wedding planner. Josiah and I literally decided every detail together.” As for how her life has changed since tying the knot, she continued. “It’s incredible, — My best friend is my life partner. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
