Patrick Stewart and new bride Sunny Ozell are all smiles at their Lake Tahoe nuptials as they pose with officiant Sir Ian McKellen, Stewart's friend and costar in the X-Men franchise.
McKellen then amusingly paid tribute to them on Facebook after the Sept. 7 ceremony, perhaps making up for letting news of the wedding slip back in March.

Sir Patrick Stewart has embarked upon a new Enterprise: marriage!
Stewart married his longtime girlfriend, Brooklyn singer and songwriter Sunny Ozell, on Saturday afternoon, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.
The ceremony took place beside Lake Tahoe in front of 100 friends and family. The bride wore a white French lace dress by Temperley London.
"Yes, married," the actor, best known for traveling the galaxy as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation, wrote alongside a Twitpic of himself and his new bride having a ball, their bodies submerged up to their heads in a ball pit.

The elegance of The Hobbit J.R.R. Tolkien's rousing tale of Bilbo Baggins helping a passel of dwarves reclaim their mountain home is that the epic spans just a few hundred pages.
Moviegoers, on the other hand, could have first breakfast, second breakfast and elevenses in the nearly three hours it takes director Peter Jackson to deliver the first third of this trilogy in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. (Part 2 is slated for next year.)
It helps that the cast is so engaging, particularly Martin Freeman as Bilbo, a kind, fussy sort torn between the comforts of his divinely cozy hobbit hole and the promise of adventure.
And what adventure it is!

Sir Ian McKellen has revealed that he suffers from prostate cancer.
McKellen – who played Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and reprises the role in the soon-to-open The Hobbit – tells the Daily Mirror that he's had "prostate cancer for six or seven years."
But the 73-year-old says the diagnosis is far from a death sentence.
"When you have got it you monitor it and you have to be careful it doesn't spread. But if it is contained in the prostate, it's no big deal," he says.

Don't put Ian McKellen's cape in storage just yet.
While there are no current plans for a fourth X-Men film, the actor says he'd be up for working in even a relatively small part on a prequel dedicated to his character, a misguided villain with power over all things metal.
"There is a script knocking around for a spinoff, but it will be a younger Magneto, so if I were involved it would be just topping and tailing the story," the actor, 69, tells BBC News.
