Baumgartner and Ackleston tied the knot in sunny, sunny California, surrounded by friends.
Office fans should get at least a little bit of a kick from this news – Brian Baumgartner (aka Kevin Malone) has found love and tied the knot. Baumgartner married his longtime girlfriend Celeste Ackelson Saturday in Los Angeles, his rep has confirmed to Us Weekly, who were first to report the news.
This is a second marriage for the actor, who has one child with his first wife.
The report of the wedding goes into explicit detail, such as the fact that the couple tied the knot at 5PM in Baumgartner’s back yard, but the reception was held elsewhere. The reception was reportedly held at the Wilshire Country Club.
Baumgartner is currently working on the Maker Shack Agency sitcom, which is still in the pilot stage.
The guestlist wasn’t particularly Hollywood-themed, although Baumgartner’s Office co-star Jenna Fischer was in attendance. Remember? Pam? Ah, this kind of news gives us Office-related feels. Other Office alumni like Angela Kinsey, John Krasinski and Oscar Nunez also attended, as well as Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr. The latter makes us imagine some kind of strange comedy crossover between GG and The Office, where all that happens is people getting married all the time. TV producers take note, that concept really could work.
It's the second marriage for the actor, who has one child with his first wife Julia Fisher (no relation to the Office actress).
So congratulations to the happy couple!
