He and Moynahan married on Long Island in October 2015

Moynahan and Frankel surprised friends with their wedding on Long Island in October 2015. The duo invited those closest to them to Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack, New York, under the guise that they were holding a harvest moon ceremony.

The celebration had a rustic theme with a "festive fall feeling," according to the planners. Basia Zamorska, the stylist that worked on Moynahan's gown, shared several details about the bride's look with PEOPLE.

"We surprised Bridget with her favorite H.Stern earrings," the stylist said. "There was only one pair in existence!"

Moynahan announced her marriage on social media that day with a sweet photo of her and her newly-minted husband strolling through the vineyard.

"Oh, by the way, guess what I just did @johndolanphotog #sohappy #perfection #friends #family #forever," Moynahan captioned the post.

I met a really solid, good human being with none of the pretension or all that other litter," she said. "He's a really good person and a good partner. I don't think as a younger person I understood what that meant when it pertains to real-life situations."

He and Moynahan enjoy spending time in the Hamptons

The actress previously opened up about her love of Eastern Long Island in a 2014 interview with E! News. The Boston native told the outlet at the time that she likes to summer out there.
