Zooey Deschanel has got married.
The '(500) Days of Summer' actress tied the knot with Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard at a private ceremony near Seattle, Washington, on Saturday (19.09.09).
Only close friends - including her 'Your Highness' co-stars James Franco and Natalie Portman - and family were present and the couple are thought to have now flown out to their secret honeymoon location.
The couple got engaged in December 2008 after dating for nearly a year, with a friend saying at the time: "Zooey was swept off her feet, and Ben is so excited."
It was recently revealed the actress had been taking ballet classes to slim down before the forthcoming nuptials.
A source said: "Zooey has been taking classes at Pure Barre in Los Angeles to prepare for the wedding. She has been doing workouts which are based on ballet barre work back-to-back.
"She'll take a class, wait 15 minutes, and then take another."
