Cuoco’s character, Penny, tied the knot with Galecki’s Leonard wearing a knee-length dress that featured intricate lace details and an illusion neckline during the Monday, September 19, show. A pink and white floral crown and white pointed-toe flats completed her wedding style. Meanwhile, Galecki looked dapper in a taupe suit paired with a diagonal-stripe tie and lace-up dress shoes. “#bts #kaleyspolaroids #leonardandpenny 💗” Cuoco, 30, captioned a Polaroid of herself and Galecki, 41, in their wedding day attire via Instagram that same night.
After a rocky start to the nuptials — including snarky side-comments from most of the main characters about love — the episode turned sweet while Penny and Leonard exchanged vows. “Leonard, standing here in front of all our family and friends is bringing up a lot of feelings — like what a good idea it was to elope the first time,” Penny quipped. “But also how incredibly happy you make me. Thank you for marrying me — hopefully for the last time.”
Leonard responded, “Penny, as a scientist, my job is to figure out why things happen. But I don’t think I’ll ever understand how someone like me could get to be with someone like you. Maybe I don’t need to understand it, I just need to be grateful. I love you, Penny!”
The costars secretly dated from 2008 to 2009, ahead of the 8 Simple Rules actress’ nuptials to Ryan Sweeting. After Cuoco split with Sweeting in September 2015, she and Galecki briefly sparked rumors that they were romantically involved again, before denying them on Instagram, writing, “#notdating.”
Cuoco is now dating equestrian Karl Cook and gushed about the relationship during The Talk on Thursday, September 15. “I can’t stop smiling. Life is so, so good,” the horse lover shared. “I finally found my horse guy. It was very meant to be. He’s an amazing rider, amazing equestrian and a great human. We shared a passion for horses and dogs … it’s been lovely.”
