Andy Samberg Weds Joanna Newsom In Big Sur

Andy Samberg is having a pretty big year. The former Saturday Night Live star signed on to his first big post-SNL TV gig, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Those duties are keeping him busy this fall, but not so busy that he couldn’t get married to his longtime girlfriend, Joanna Newsom, over the weekend.

Samberg has been engaged to Newsom, an indie singer and harpist, since this past winter. The press first found out when the singer showed up to the Independent Spirit Awards wearing a pretty engagement ring. Samberg and Newsom have never really been super public about their relationship, so it’s no real surprise that the press found out about the actual nuptials only after they had actually been accomplished.

The two were married in California at a popular destination for the wealthy and famous in Big Sur called the Post Ranch Inn, a hotel that costs more a per night to stay in than Disneyland annual passes. If the place sounds familiar, it’s also coincidentally the location where actor Justin Bartha popped the question to fitness instructor Lia Smith. Samberg’s representative confirmed the nuptials to Us Weekly, who also noted the wedding took place on Saturday, September 21.

The couple dated for five years before heading down the aisle, but Samberg had to put some groundwork in to initially catch the singer’s eye, going to her shows to hang out and listen to her music. He eventually was able to meet her through some mutual acquaintances, and the rest is history. With that sort of commitment early on, you would think Samberg and Newsom are destined to last, and Pop Blend would like to wish the couple the very best as they settle into married life, together.

Given their professions, it will be difficult to make time for each other, but hopefully, with enough determination and love in their hearts, they can find a way to support each other emotionally and continue to grow their own careers.
