Ellie Kemper is no longer a bridesmaid, as it was recently confirmed that the actress was wed to longtime boyfriend Michael Koman.

Ellie Kemper, who starred in the comedy film "Bridesmaid," threw her supporting role out for the day to play the starring lady in her own wedding. The actress, who also appears in the television sitcom "The Office," was married on Saturday, according to her reps who spoke with People magazine.

The 32-year-old first announced her engagement to Koman in December. Koman is the former writer on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and the co-creator of the Adult Swim series "Eagleheart."

"Today a member of the only fictional band I've ever been in is getting married," Mindy Kaling, fellow co-star on "The Office," tweeted Saturday morning before the wedding.

Other fans of the actress also shared some well wishes for the newlyweds.

"Congrats!! They loook like such an adorable couple. She seems like such a total sweetie in interviews I have seen with her and she has such a wicked humour!!" Dahliah wrote on the People blog. "Hopefully their day has been amazing and they have a lifetime of amazing days ahead of them."

Kemper studied comedy at Princeton University and scored some minor roles before gaining some internet notoriety and then starting her career in New York. Kemper originally auditioned for NBC's "Parks and Recreation" but instead received a call back for her role as Erin Hannon on "The Office." Kemper also appeared in "Get Him to the Greek" and most recently "21 Jump Street."

Following her December engagement, Kemper confirmed during an appearance on the Conan O'Brian show that her parents were also a fan of her new fiancé.

"My family likes him a lot. They've met him many times," she said. "My parents are very warm, welcoming people to begin with, but also, Michael's a delight."
