'Agents Of SHIELD': Patton Oswalt Just Got Married

Patton Oswalt, who fans know from Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and Mystery Science Theater 3000, married Meredith Salenger on Saturday, the actor and comedian revealed on Twitter.

Oswalt shared photos from the ceremony of himself with the bride as well as his daughter, Alice Rigney Oswalt.

“What’d you guys do yesterday?” Oswalt asked when he Tweeted the photo out.

Oswalt and Salenger’s wedding took place at Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles. The ceremony was officiated by actress Marhta Plimpton, who was responsible for introducing them. Aimee Mann and Michael Penn provided music for the first dance.

The couple announced their engagement in July, when Salenger shared photos from Oswalt’s proposal on her Instagram feed, writing, “It’s official. I’m the luckiest happiest girl in the universe!!!! I love you @pattonoswalt I love you Alice Oswalt! #YesYesYes”

Oswalt recalled the proposal differently on Twitter, tweeting “I put the ring in a marzipan Slave I replica and said, ‘Will you be my Padawan of Love?’ She maced me but said yes later.”

The engagement came just over a year after the death of Oswalt’s previous wife Michelle McNamara, who died in her sleep in April 2016.

In a Facebook post made one-year after McNamara’s death, Oswalt opened up about his grief and trying to move on.

“It’s awful, but it’s not fatal,” Oswalt wrote. “That’s the dispatch I’m sending back from exactly one year into this shadow-slog.”

Oswalt continued, talking about the struggle to remove his first wedding ring.

“I couldn’t bear removing it since April 21st, 2016,” he wrote. “But now it felt obscene. That anonymous poem about the man mourning his dead lover for a year and a day, for craving a kiss from her ‘clay cold lips.’ I was inviting more darkness. Removing the ring was removing the last symbol of denial of who I was now, and what my life is, and what my responsibilities are. But it’s not fatal.”
