Penn Badgley and Domino Kirke celebrated their wedding with a low-key yet stunning ceremony, and a beautiful cake to match.

The Gossip Girl alum and singer—sister to Girls star Jemima Kirke and Mozart in the Jungle‘s Lola Kirke—were married in a small courthouse on Monday, followed by an intimate reception at Maison-May restaurant in Brooklyn. Kirke shared photos of the magical day on Instagram, starting with a shot of herself looking into her groom’s eyes captioned, “✨Married ✨.”

She followed up with a snap of their four-tier cake created by Emily Lael Aumiller of Lael Cakes. “An organic, vegan, and gluten-free orange blossom cake layered with chocolate icing and cacao nibs, covered with lavender icing only seemed fitting for a wedding cake as unique and stunning as Domino Kirke,” Aumiller tells PEOPLE.


The baker, who shares her techniques in her cookbook, Pure Artistry, used a marbled rosewater fondant to cover the bottom tier and then topped it with three more “semi-naked” cakes. “This custom creation combined Domino’s love of naked cakes with lush fruit, floral notes such as orange blossom, lavender and rosewater and the delicacy of our marbled designs,” she said.

Aumiller finished the “completely unusual, stunning look” by decorating with fresh kumquats, brown turkey figs and blackberries.

“Thank you for the vegan, gluten free magic that was our wedding cake,” wrote Kirke, tagging the Brooklyn-based bakery.

The musician wore a long sleeve lace dress and held an assortment of flowers from Fox Fodder Farm, who also provided an “explosive spring” of florals for the reception.

Friends and family also posted glimpses into their big day on Instagram. “When someone gets married in a courthouse, it’s really an open invitation to everyone but the beautiful bride to explore all that fashion has to offer. Here, I try a look simply called ‘Pants,’ as Cassius goes for ‘That Dude from #incubus’ and Jemima experiments with ‘Off to Therapy!’” Lola captioned a family photo from the courthouse. “Congratulations @dominokirke. We love you.”
