Several “Guardians of the Galaxy,” The Suicide Squad” and “Peacemaker” stars attended the nuptials, including Chris Pratt, John Cena, Zoe Saldana and Michael Rooker.
Congratulations are in order for filmmaker James Gunn and actress Jennifer Holland!
On Friday, Gunn, 56, announced on social media that he and Holland, 35, tied the knot over the previous weekend after seven years together. The “Guardians of the Galaxy” director and “Peacemaker” actress married in a star-studded ceremony at Dunbar Ranch in Aspen, Colorado.
The couple — who became engaged in February 2022 — shared a series of photos and videos from their special day on social media.
Alongside an Instagram post that featured shots from the wedding weekend, Gunn wrote in part, “After over 7 years together, I finally married the love of my life, @jenniferlholland. What an incredible, beautiful, stunning day surrounded by the most wonderful family and friends in the world.”
Similarly, Holland — who wore a gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown — posted a carousel of photos from the nuptials on Instagram. “James! Thank you for sharing your love, life and family with me. Thank you for choosing me, for elevating me, and for always making me belly laugh. Here’s to many more years to follow the first extraordinary 7,” she wrote in part. “@jamesgunn and I got married surrounded by the most beautiful humans, the most magical scenery, and endless love and laughter. My gratitude is bursting at the seams.”
Meanwhile, Gunn posted a lengthy thread on Twitter, in which he shared more details about the festivities.
He revealed a large animal made an appearance at the start of the nuptials, hilariously noting that “Scooby-Doo” star Matthew Lillard provided some commentary to the surprise guest. “A moose interrupted the beginning of the ceremony! For those who don’t know, moose are the most dangerous wild mammals in North America,” Gunn tweeted alongside a video of guests in their seats with the moose in the background. “But the big dude just wandered by. @MatthewLillard yelled out, ‘It’s James’ Dad!”
Gunn also posted about the wedding party, revealing that his brother Sean Gunn officiated the ceremony. “I was lucky to have my brother @seangunn (who battled through altitude sickness) as the officiant. He killed it,” he tweeted.
The “Peacemaker” creator also shared that Funko made adorable, custom Funko Pop cake topper for his and Holland’s wedding cake.
Meanwhile, several stars from “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “The Suicide Squad” and “Peacemaker” attended the nuptials, including Chris Pratt, John Cena, Zoe Saldana, Nathan Fillion, Karen Gillan and Michael Rooker. “And of course, being joined at our wedding by our #GotG, #TheSuicideSquad & #Peacemaker families made things all that much sweeter,” Gunn tweeted alongside black-and-white group photos of him and Holland posing with the franchise’s stars.
The fact that Gunn has worked with both Marvel and DC Comics was celebrated during the wedding weekend through a “big Marvel VS DC softball game with jerseys and everything.” Gunn noted that Rooker “played on both teams” as he’s starred in both Marvel’s “GOTG” and DC’s “The Suicide Squad.”
