Watch out, Leonard — Penny just got hitched to another man! In real life, Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco didn’t marry the physicist boy next door; she married her pro equestrian fiancé, Karl Cook. The couple had a romantic summer wedding this weekend in San Diego.
Seven months after Cook popped the question to Cuoco on her 32nd birthday, the pair wed in front of their closest friends and family. Although less than a year separated the proposal and the nuptials, it was a long time coming for Cuoco, who told E! News in March that she couldn’t wait to marry Cook.
“We are so happy and in love,” she gushed. “He is excited as I am, which is sweet. I finally found my soulmate, so we’re ready to do it.”
It’s no surprise, then, that when that big day actually came, Cuoco broke the news on Instagram. On Saturday, the actor captioned a sweet black-and-white photo of the newlyweds, “Legally KCSQUARED 6-30-18.”
Cuoco looked stunning in a white lace gown with matching floor-length cape, hair in a messy bun for the ceremony. After, she switched it up with a high ponytail and a lacy jumpsuit. Cuoco shared a photo of the flirty ensemble as the couple presumably headed to their reception.
Cuoco and Cook were both clearly still swooning from the festivities the following morning. She shared a photo of the new Mr. and Mrs. on a balcony sporting matching jean jackets.
Cook shared a beautiful wedding portrait, captioning the photo, “Good morning honey, I love you, and I’m sorry. I’m still processing the greatest night of my life marrying the love of my life! I mean god damn that dress was amazing!”
Last weekend, Cuoco prepared for becoming Mrs. Cook in the best possible way — a bachelorette blowout with a few of her favorite people, including stylist Brad Goreski.
This is the first marriage for Cook and the second for Cuoco, who was married to former tennis pro Ryan Sweeting from 2013 to 2016.
