Rossum married Esmail in an intimate NYC ceremony this weekend, and her friends-slash-co-stars couldn't have been happier for her.

How can we tell? By their social media feeds, of course. Just check out these sweet snapshots from Isidora Goreshter (Svetlana) and Shanola Hampton (Veronica).


For her part, Rossum commemorated the special occasion by sharing a sentimental shot of her and Esmail standing beneath an awe-inspiring altar of flowers.


Rossum and Esmail's love story started when the actress was cast in the first full-length film Esmail directed, 2013's Comet. Although it was previously speculated that the couple — who got engaged in 2015 — wed in secret sometime last year, Rossum's Insta post puts such theories to rest.

Rossum officially (and not so secretly) married Esmail at the East 55th Street Conservative Synagogue in New York City with a reception following at the Guggenheim.

Rossum wowed in a custom Carolina Herrera wedding gown, while Esmail looked sharp in a black suit. In addition to Goreshter and Hampton, guests included William H. Macy, Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Robert Downey Jr. and Hilary Swank.

This is the first marriage for Esmail and the second for Rossum, who was married to Justin Siegel from 2008 to 2010.
