Joanna Newsom, Andy Samberg Married In California
Newsom and Samberg began dating five years ago and announced their engagement earlier this year. The wedding caps a big year for Samberg, who left ‘Saturday Night Live’ in June, appeared in the film ‘Grown Ups 2′ and is now starring in the Fox comedy ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ which premiered last week.
Earlier this month, Samberg told Ryan Seacrest preparations for the wedding were filled with “stress and joy,” but now that the former ‘SNL’ cast member and Newsom have all the flower arrangements, seating charts and crucial DJ-versus-band decisions behind them, they can finally focus on the joyful bits and start enjoying their lives together. The biggest problem now: getting Joanna’s harp into the overhead compartment when they fly off to whatever exotic locale they’ve chosen for their honeymoon. Unless they’re opting for scenic Brooklyn, where his show is set and she’s certainly got more than a few fans.
And speaking of Newsom fans, lovers of her sprawling, complex songs will have to stay tuned to see how marriage affects her career. She hasn’t released an album since 2010’s ‘Have One on Me,’ though she guested on the the new Thao & the Get Down Stay Down record, which dropped in February, and in 2011, she jammed with the Muppets on the theme to their latest movie.
