The actress and director, beloved for her roles on One Tree Hill and Melrose Place, wed her longtime beau David Mleczko in a private ceremony on June 8 at Oleana Restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts, PEOPLE confirms exclusively. “It’s just family and very intimate,” Zuniga, 56, told PEOPLE two days before the nuptials. “I always had this fear of having too big of a wedding that I’d feel like I was going to be acting or performing because I’ve been a bride on-screen. In real life, I wanted it to be more poignant and private.” KJM Media From Cheryl & Matthew to Joe & Sophie: All of the Celeb Couples Who’ve Tied the Knot in 2019 Lily Mleczko Surrounded by almost 30 members of their family, Zuniga, who wore a Nicole Miller gown, and Mleczko were married by a close friend and New York Times bestselling author Sharon Salzberg and wrote their own vows. “But Sharon’s going to read them because we don’t think we can get through it without falling apart,” Zuniga said, laughing. “I’ll still fall apart, are you kidding? It’s going to be like stuffing the Kleenex right in the dress.” For more exclusive details and photos of Zuniga and Mleckzo’s wedding, pick up next week’s issue of PEOPLE on newsstands Friday.

This is the first marriage for Zuniga and the second for Mleczko, who co-founded the PR company, Signature Green.

She is also directing the new film, The Waiting Room, which will begin production this summer.
