Emily in Paris actress Lily Collins has just shared three stunning wedding images on her Instagram account, revealing that she and fiance Charlie McDowell married in Colorado at the weekend.

The couple married on September 4 at Dunton Hot Springs, following an engagement of almost a year.

Posting on her Instagram account, Lily said: “What started as a fairytale, is now my forever reality. I’ll never be able to properly describe how otherworldly this past weekend was, but magical is a pretty good place to start…”

The 31-year-old newlywed added in another image: “I’ve never wanted to be someone’s someone more than I do yours, and now I get to be your wife. On September 4th, 2021 we officially became each other’s forever. I love you beyond.”


Another photo showed Lily in her hooded white veil, and Charlie McDowell holding her face in his hands. “Never been happier,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, Emily in Paris co-star Ashley Park commented: “I’ll never be over this photo and you both.”

The couple married at Dunton Hot Springs just outside Telluride. The remote resort, once an 1800s ghost town, has been retrofitted into a property that includes 12 luxury cabins and a restored bathhouse that is fed by the natural warm water source.

Nestled in an alpine valley, the property boasts views of 14,000-foot mountain peaks, aspen trees, rivers, and meadows.

Speaking to L’Officiel magazine, she said: “Quarantine has made and broken up a lot of people, but the time together just solidified what we already knew about each other. Everyone has very much been who they are these last few months, because there aren’t any external distractions.”

“When you’ve seen someone at their best and at their worst and you’re still right there with them, that’s a beautiful thing.”
