Deschanel weds Gibbard after almost a year of dating. The couple exchange vows in an evening ceremony held near Seattle, Washington. Gibbard proposed too Deschanel with a three-carat and platinum ring from Neil Lane. Deschanel:
Probably the most surprising thing is that it’s not really that different. You still have to make a commitment and think about that commitment every day. It’s not like you get married and then all the work is done for you. You get married and you’re still in a relationship and you’re still doing your best to make it the best relationship you can.
I was just awestruck that she was even talking to me. I’d seen her movies and obviously I thought she was very beautiful.
