"On September 4th, 2021 we officially became each other's forever. I love you beyond @charliemcdowell …"
She added in two subsequent posts, "Never been happier … What started as a fairytale, is now my forever reality. I'll never be able to properly describe how otherworldly this past weekend was, but magical is a pretty good place to start."
McDowell, 38, who has directed episodes of "Silicon Valley," "Legion" and more shows, said on his Instagram account, "I married the most generous, thoughtful, and beautiful person I've ever known. I love you @lilyjcollins," to which his new bride responded in a comment, "I'm so excited to be your WIFEY."
The two announced their engagement in September 2020.
