Former 'LOST' Star Maggie Grace Marries Fiance Brent Bushnell, & She Is Smitten
Memorial Day weekend may be the unofficial start of summer, but for one actress, it's the official start of married life. Former LOST star Maggie Grace married Brent Bushnell, her fiancé of just three months, Us Weekly confirmed. The two were married in La Jolla, California on Sunday in a small, private ceremony with their closest family and friends, according to E! Online. The 33-year-old actress is best known for her roles as rich kid Shannon Rutherford on ABC's hit drama series LOST, as well as the kidnapped daughter of Liam Neeson's character in the Taken movie trilogy.
Grace and Bushnell have kept their relationship largely under wraps, save for a few adoring photos posted to Grace's Instagram account since January. She first posted a photo of Bushnell at the Women's Sister March in Los Angeles, captioning the photo "WHAT A MAN," tagging it with hashtag #StrongMenSupportStrongWomen. On February 7, she posted a photo of herself in a canoe with Bushnell, captioning the photo with some prose from Walt Whitman, "the strongest and sweetest songs yet remain to be sung" — and later that same day, PEOPLE confirmed that Grace and Bushnell were engaged.
Aw, just look at this smitten lil duo...
The 38-year-old Bushnell is the co-founder and CEO of Two Bit Circus, an LA-based entertainment engineering firm. Grace's geeky new hubby is also responsible for the STEAM Carnival, a "traveling event to inspire kids about science, technology, engineering, art and math," according to Bushnell's website. E! Online notes the pair reportedly met sometime in 2016, after Grace broke off her engagement with filmmaker Matthew Cooke in February of that year, after a year-long engagement.
While there the couple hasn't shared any photos from their special day just yet, it's likely Grace wore a wedding dress by couture designer Claire Pettibone, according to Us Weekly — the actress was spotted trying on dresses at the designer's West Hollywood store in February. Meanwhile, PEOPLE had the scoop on the look of Grace's wedding jewelry, courtesy of jeweler Neil Lane. "Her choice of wedding earring was inspired by her Edwardian lace veil," Lane said. "They are vintage with delicate swirls of circular diamonds set in platinum. Her pearl-and-diamond hair combs are also of the Edwardian era."
Here's hoping that Grace will share some of her wedding photos at her Instagram — until then, let's raise a glass to Grace and Bushnell and many years of adorable wedded bliss together.
