Patton Oswalt Marries Meredith Salenger
Congrats to the comedian and his new bride!
Patton Oswalt is once again a married man.
The funnyman wed actress Meredith Salenger over the weekend and the pair shared their joyous news on social media.
“What’d you guys do yesterday?” Oswalt wrote on an Instagram photo showing him, Salenger and his daughter Alice in their wedding attire.
Salenger shared the same image, writing, “True love. True happiness. Forever and Always. The Oswalts.”
According to Salenger’s post, the pair were married Saturday at Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles.
(Get a look at this historic property in the video below.)
Oswalt, 48, is best known for his roles in “The King of Queens” and “Ratatouille.”
Salenger, 47, appeared in several 1980s movies, including “The Journey of Natty Gann.”
She also posted several images from the wedding.
Including a few very special ones with Oswalt’s 8-year-old daughter, Alice.
A few special pics from the reception also featured Salenger with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, a longtime friend.
It is a testament to Patton that he allowed the first boy I ever kissed to be at our wedding! Granted that boy has remained a dear friend of mine since 7th grade. The kindest most caring brilliant man and perhaps hopefully our future President, the current Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti. @ericgarcetti I am so proud of the person you are and so honored you came to celebrate! You have been there at all my milestones. The premiere of Natty Gann when were were 15. My sweet 16. The 30th anniversary of Natty and now my wedding. I adore you. You are a dear friend and I am so blessed to have you in my life. … more to come. I am always your biggest supporter. 🌈💖⭐️Photo Credit @jeffvespa

Oswalt and Salenger faced some criticism when they announced their engagement in July — 15 months after his first wife, Michelle McNamara, unexpectedly died in her sleep.
(Her death was eventually determined to be due to a combination of prescription medications and a previously undiagnosed heart condition.)
Oswalt wed McNamara, a crime writer, in 2005, and the two welcomed Alice in 2009. After her death, Oswalt wrote several moving tributes about her.
