Aubrey Plaza and Jeff Baena secretly tied the knot in 2021 while celebrating their 10-year anniversary.

The pair have been dating since 2011, but they’ve never confirmed exactly when they met or when their love story began.

The White Lotus alum and the Horse Girl director have collaborated on films including Life After Beth and Joshy in 2016 and Spin Me Round in 2022.

“I think that when you’re with someone that is in your field, they understand what you’re dealing with on a deeper level,” Plaza told People in 2019.

Baena also expressed how lucky he is to work with his wife. “She’s awesome. I’d be working with her if she wasn’t my wife, but luckily she is my wife,” Baena told Reel Talker in 2022. “The opportunity to do something creative [together] where we’re both fulfilled — how rare is that?”

Before starting production on Spin Me Round, Plaza shared a celebratory Instagram post for Baena, praising his movie. She also subtly revealed that the two had tied the knot.

“So proud of my darling husband,” Plaza wrote in May 2021. “For dreaming up another film that takes us to italia to cause some more trouble.”

“We got a little bored one night,” the Parks and Recreation alum recalled. “We got married and I’ll tell you how: Onehourmarriage.com. That’s real, look it up.”

Plaza continued explaining how she had to negotiate in order to get the officiant to agree to drive to her home and perform the ceremony in their backyard. She included her neighbor — who she described as a real-life witch — to get her spiritual blessing.

“I created a very quick love altar in our yard. Facts of our love, little stones, smoke, fire. Things of that nature. Then the man from Alhambra showed up,” Plaza continued. “I can’t remember a lot of it, it was fuzzy. But I’m pretty sure it was legal.”
