Penn Badgley married Domino Kirke (again) and the bride wore beige

💫 the most beautiful bride💫✨congratulations Domino you deserve the moon and the stars✨ 💕

Wait, did everyone else know that Penn Badgley got married?? I totally didn’t know or I had forgotten it completely. Penn Badgley married Domino Kirke in February, at a “small courthouse in Brooklyn,” which sounds like Peak Hipster to me, but then they had to go and add another pile of hipster onto the Hipster Mountain. Domino Kirke is the sister of Girls’ actress Jemima Kirke and Lola Kirke, who is an actress and filmmaker. Domino is a “doula and birth educator.” And a singer too, as I discovered when I crept on her social media. Their parents knew how to do girl-names, right? Jemima, Lola and Domino? Amazing.

Anyway, after Domino and Penn Badgley had their courthouse wedding in February, I guess they felt like doing an actual wedding ceremony/celebration this weekend. And the bride wore beige!! I honestly don’t completely hate the IDEA of a beige dress, I just don’t like this beige dress in particular. This is the whole reason I’m writing about this wedding too, so we can talk about the bride’s beige wedding dress. I think I would have an issue with beige if this had been the first wedding ceremony, or if the wedding had seemed more formal. But as it is, it just looked like an outdoor party/reception, with Domino looking like she’s wearing her grandmother’s ancient doily dress (which may even be the case).

According to People Magazine, guests included Mariska Hargitay, Zac Posen and Debra Messing. From what I can see of the food, it looked like full-vegetarian, if not vegan.

"You only get married twice, once" 🌹🌹I love you @pennbadgley

    Penn was my favorite Gossip boy (even though he technically was the only one, hehe). Congrats to him and Domino!!

    Ever since he was hooking up with Zoe Kravitz I’ve assumed he’s hipster girl catnip and this confirms it.
    Sidebar: I cannot wait for the new season of Mozart in the jungle but I suspect I’m alone on that.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      You are not alone! My patience is wearing a bit thin with the Maestro and Hailey but I enjoyed s. 3 more than most people I think!

    • SugarMalone says:

      Not Alone! I’ve watched all three seasons through 3 times and I’m considering a 4th. It’s one of those shows that just makes me happy. I love the characters and the writing.
      Cannot WAIT until December!

    Her o.g. wedding dress in bottom pic was pretty, her party dress looks like a dead girl Halloween costume I wore the other year. It looks dirty and rolled around in. Trampy smelly hipsters. 😉

    Oh that deflated my Kirke Sisters Hard on.. Him??

    But Ok No I still Love the Kirke Sisters, their names and their steeze ( I actually Like that dress for her and also cause I hate white on myself)

    • GiBee says:

      Jemima is a great name. Lola is a great, great name. But Domino is just such a kick-butt name. I think you’d need confidence to pull it off – or develop confidence with that as a name.

      • QQ says:

        I Agree, but they all work well together? Like they could be a Rock Band of Bad Asses? Like The Haim Girls Real Name totally could be that??

    Personal opinion: that dress is ugly as homemade sin and I would not put it on my body in a million years. I do not believe you have to wear white to get married (I wore ivory with rose gold beading), but the fit, especially around the waist, and color are both atrocious, in MY opinion.
    However, it’s her wedding, and if that made her feel happy and beautiful and thrilled… go forth in peace.

  6. It'sJustBlanche says:

    I don’t hate the color but I hate the dress. Actually I kind of hate the color too. Also, and I don’t have anything against anyone’s tattoos and I don’t care about tattoos in general, but hers look like a mess.

  7. Talie says:

    He was a big part of the Occupy Wall Street thing too. He’s like peak rich guy trying to be “of the people.”

    • Parigo says:

      I prefer a rich dude trying to be “people” than just trying to be rich and entitled. At least he’s making an effort to understand the issues.

  8. Sullivan says:

    There is an old song (maybe country) that’s about a woman who went mad after she was jilted at the alter. She walks around the town in her dirty old wedding dress. That’s what Kirk’s wedding dress brought to mind. They both look happy and in love, though.

  9. GirlBye says:

    I have no idea who these people are.

  10. bitchyarchitect says:

    I got married in beige. I wanted to be able to wear my wedding dress again. Sixteen years later, I am still wearing my dress and loving it! ALthough I think if I had it to do over again I would do white. I look great in white and not as much in beige but a long white strapless dress looks like you’re going out in your wedding dress….

  11. Tiffany says:

    Domino looks ecstatic in both sets of photos. And that alone makes both services beautiful.

  12. Misery Fox says:

    I don’t care for Penn in still pictures, but I like him in motion/movies. Woodchuck Todd 4-eva!

  13. Elizabeth M. says:

    What kind of crown/headband Domino is wearing? Its gorgeous.

  14. Tania says:

    They look happy. I love her look at the bottom, not a fan of the beige dress. But congrats to gossip boy and his hipster queen!

  15. Roci says:

    She seems so happy, so whatevs. Having said that, birth educator? I understand the role if a doula, but my eyes are rolling hard at self-proclaimed expertise in medical matters. Peak hipster, indeed.

    • pf says:

      If you look at the Carriage House website, they provide training and education classes to certify as a doula so maybe that’s what she means by birth educator – she’s teaching people to become doulas. Maybe it’s hipstery, but she could be doing worse with her money and time.

  16. Neens says:

    Usually I’m a cynic but they both look genuinely happy together. Congrats to them.

  17. Erica_V says:

    I’ve been searching for an unconventional wedding dress color but nope – not gonna be beige. It just looks dirty IMO.

  18. sunnydaze says:

    I actually really kind of dig the name “Domino”! Jemima…I’ll always think of the syrup. I think if I didn’t have such an affinity for pancakes I’d be jazzed about that name too. Lola, I’ll never shake the feeling of a “lolita”. But I’m really on board with Domino!

  19. Neens says:

    I creeped on her instagram after I commented the first time and it looks like this was the dress she wore during the ceremony.

  20. Alexis says:

    That Penn guy loves bohemian women. Like aside from Blake that seems to be his pattern. I guess that’s how he identifies but it’s hard to tell since he was on…Gossip Girl, right?
