Alison Brie & Dave Franco wrote their wedding vows separately, said the same things

In a surprise to a lot of people, myself included, Alison Brie and her Disaster Artist co-star Dave Franco got married in March of last year. The two met at Mardi Gras in 2011 and were engaged in 2015. They are a cute couple and they seem quite happy together. Last November Alison told PEOPLE that “Something about being married made me feel so settled, almost more free, I guess, rather than like trapped. It’s great.”

The 35-year-old actress is hitting the talk show circuit in advance of GLOW season 2, which premieres on Netflix June 29 (as marked on my calendar). On Tuesday night, she appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. When host Andy Cohen asked her what the best part of her wedding was, she replied:

“Probably our wedding vows, because we wrote our own and didn’t know what the other person was going to say. It’s funny to hear them out loud and you feel like, ‘We said all the same things that we want to be for each other.’ That was very sweet.”

As much as that was a sweet story to share on WWHL, I really enjoyed learning that Alison once worked as a birthday party clown, but quit because she was “too stressed out.” Listen to her tell the story and stick around to hear from the wonderful Billy Porter, Tony winner for Kinky Boots and star of Pose on FX (watch that show, seriously).

The next day, Alison showed up on The View, where she talked about how she and Dave celebrated their one-year anniversary. Spoiler: they did nothing. She revealed:

”Both of us are so low-key… we don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day or anniversaries. I feel like we’re very loving on a day-to-day basis and it kind of slips our mind, and then we’re like, ‘Oh, it’s a holiday!’”

“So the same thing happened with our one-year anniversary, we just didn’t plan anything, and then we woke up that morning, and definitely, I regret it. There was definitely a feeling. I woke up and was like, ‘I wish we had thought of something special to do…'”

“We ended up having a lovely day together…We did like, brunch, movie, hiking, but I was like (to Dave), ‘You didn’t surprise me with anything?’ He was like, ‘You didn’t surprise me with anything!’ I was like, ‘We’re awful!’ We need to take this more seriously in the future… We’ll plan a trip!”

This sounds so much like me and my current relationship. If we can end up like Alison and Dave, I certainly wouldn’t mind.

    His vows should read “I am so lucky. I will love you, hold you in the highest esteem, be your loyal partner and most enthusiastic cheerleader every single day for the rest of our lives.”

    Or something like that…

      Well he definitely got the better end of the deal.

    • Nana says:

      He’s a bigger name. You don’t think he’s adorable? I strongly disagree with your assessment. I mean…..she’s “ok” I guess

        It’s true, I am a huge Alison Brie fan-girl. No shade on DF, just love Brie’s performances. Was always blown away when she was on Community and Mad Men simultaneously.

    for some reason I read the title diagonally and focused on the words “alison brie dave fanco” and “separate”. I was scared to death for half a second.

  3. Patricia says:

    They remind me of me and my husband a lot. We had basically the same vows too, even though we didn’t write them together! And we are very loving from day to day so it puts less pressure on “special” days. Although we do go over the top with love in Valentine’s Day. We are corny lol.

    Also I totally get what she’s saying about feeling both settled and free within marriage. I’m happy for them!

    These two are cute and seem solid. They got married young, sure, but it looks like they took their time and got to know each other well. I can see them being like Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy, low-key but devoted partners.
