Patton Oswalt marries Meredith Salenger 4 months after engagement
Congratulations to newlyweds Patton Oswalt and Meredith Salenger. The two wed Saturday, the actor announced on Twitter.
Oswalt, 48, shared a photo from the wedding where he sported a gray suit, without a tie, while his bride donned an off-the-shoulder wedding gown. “What’d you guys do yesterday?” he captioned the photo.
His daughter, Alice, served as the flower girl. She’s Oswalt’s 8-year-old daughter with his late wife, Michelle McNamara.
Oswalt became engaged to his then-fiancee Salenger in July, more than a year after McNamara died on April 21, 2016.
Oswalt said he “decided to ignore” the “bitter grub worms,” who had negative things to say about his engagement. Instead, he shared a blog, titled “A Widow’s Rage Defense Against Patton Oswalt’s Engagement,” in which writer Erica Roman defended the actor.
“Who gave you the position to judge when it’s ‘too soon’ for a person who has suffered the worst to be able to find happiness and companionship again?” Roman wrote. “It’s been 15 months! How long should a widow sit in isolation before YOU are comfortable enough to release them from their solitary confinement?”
