Kathy Griffin is ushering in a new decade with a new husband!

The comedian, 59, married longtime boyfriend Randy Bick early Wednesday in what she described alongside a clip on Twitter as a ceremony lasting “just under 14 minutes.” Griffin’s video of the nuptials was only of the first minute or so and showed Lily Tomlin (hilariously) officiating.

“What was supposed to be a shallow, ‘toot it and boot it’ one-night stand has grown and flourished into something far more meaningful,” said the Grace and Frankie star, 80, as she began the ceremony. “They stayed together. Then they couldn’t stay away from one another.”

Griffin wore a pearly white, short-sleeved gown by Diane Von Furstenberg with earrings by Erica Courtney, and she and carried a bouquet of red flowers for her memorable night.

She captioned the footage of their ceremony, “LOVE IT! We promised you atypical. We are in love and we cannot stop laughing. Thank you @LilyTomlin and Jane Wagner! #HappyNewYear.”

In a separate tweet, she wrote that her wedding dress was actually a sweet callback to her first date with Bick in 2011. She wore that same dress then and, for their ceremony on Wednesday, “He picked out this dress and showed me this photo. Romance is hotttt again,” she tweeted.

Griffin tells PEOPLE: “Randy and I are doing sort of toy rings for the ceremony because neither one of us like wearing rings ever. So we will never wear rings. Deal with it.”

Their surprise “I dos” came just hours after Griffin announced her engagement to Bick in a sweet video she shared to Twitter on New Year’s Eve.

“Happy New Year! And, surprise! We’re getting married! Tonight! After midnight!” the two said in unison in the clip.

Added Bick, “She said yes!”

The My Life on the D-List star said that her wedding would be “very atypical” and “very fun” and teased that her fans would be particularly excited by the officiant, who turned out to be Tomlin.

Griffin and Bick started dating in 2011 after meeting at a food and wine festival.

“Well, you know, I didn’t think it would last [because] he’s 18 years younger than I am!” she joked to PEOPLE in 2016. “Because I thought he was just a man-whore, if you will.”

The star soon learned she was wrong, explaining that Bick is “very sweet and very mellow.”

“He’s like a regular guy, you know, he’s like a real guy,” she previously told PEOPLE. “He’s not like a Hollywood guy.”

The couple briefly went their separate ways in November 2018, with Griffin writing on Twitter at the time that it was not a bitter split.

“God help me, but I’m gonna be one of those people who announces a break up. After 7 years, Randy and I have decided to part ways. It’s not acrimonious and I will always adore him,” she tweeted.

They were back together within months, however, as Griffin shared a sweet photo of the couple smiling while they posed with Richard Marx and Daisy Fuentes.

“We took a little break and we’re back,” she told Entertainment Tonight in March. “We just came to the decision that we’ve really been through so much together. We’ve been together over eight years … We both turned to each other and realized this is the longest relationship for both of us, you know? We should fight for it and make it work.”

The two even added a pair of pets to their family on Saturday, as Griffin shared on Twitter that she and Bick had adopted two rescue dogs, Mary and Maggie. “Randy and I just couldn’t resist adding two more rescue puppers to our family!” she wrote.

This is the second marriage for Griffin, who split from software entrepreneur Matthew Moline in 2005 after four years of marriage.
