Stana Katic celebrated her birthday by saying “I do.”

The Castle star, who turned 37 on Sunday, married longtime boyfriend Kris Brkljac this past weekend.

The couple married “in a private family monastery on the Dalmatian coast,” the actress’s rep tells PEOPLE in a statement, sharing a photo of the newlyweds’ rings.

Brkljac is a business consultant.

Dalmatia is a region in Croatia bordering the Adriatic Sea. Kanic grew up in Canada and is of Croatian and Serbian descent. Speaking to PEOPLE earlier this month about her Alternative Travel Project, she said growing up the child of immigrants inspired her environmentalism today.

“My ‘normal’ has always been to have a veggie garden and a few fruit trees in the backyard,” she said.
