Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Gossip Girl alum Penn Badgley tied the knot with Domino Kirke this week.

The 30-year-old actor wed Kirke, a singer and sister of Girls star Jemima Kirke, in a courthouse wedding Monday in New York, according to E! News.


Badgley looked dapper in a navy suit and black tie, while Kirke wore a lace minidress and carried a bouquet of pale flowers. The couple's family and friends, including Jemima, Kirke's sister Lola and friend Darren Will, celebrated the marriage on social media.

"Congratulations ya [expletive]heads! @PennBadgley and @DominoKirke it's all downhill from here. In a good way!" Jemima tweeted.

"When someone gets married in a courthouse, it's really an open invitation to everyone but the beautiful bride to explore all that fashion has to offer. Here, I try a look simply called "Pants," Lola wrote on Instagram. "Congratulations @dominokirke. We love you."

"Congrats to a couple of beautiful people," Darren captioned a photo of the newlyweds.
