Andy Samberg and Joanna Newsom have tied the knot. The Saturday Night Live alum and harp-playing singer-songwriter were married on Saturday in Big Sur, California, Us Weekly reports.

Samberg and Newsom got engaged last February after dating for five years. The Lonely Island goofball had been a fan of Newsom and frequented her shows before the pair were introduced by mutual friends.

This month has already jumped off to a big start for Samberg, whose new cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine premiered last week. Newsom, whose most recent album was 2010's three-disc Have One On Me, is rumored to have a role in Paul Thomas Anderson's next movie, Inherent Vice. She also appeared last year on Portlandia.
