Grace and Bushnell tied the knot in May 2017 during an intimate, outdoor ceremony with close family and friends in Ojai, California.

Shortly after the wedding, the Taken 3 actress posted a photo of herself and her new husband being showered with flower petals during the celebration.

"The past year and a half together has been so beautiful, we didn't know our joy could increase!" she captioned the Instagram post. "It's impossible to sum up how humbled, grateful and joyful we both feel to share this time with family and friends. Thank you all so much for your well wishes!"

PEOPLE reported Grace's engagement to Bushnell, the founder of an engineering entertainment company called Two Bit Circus, the previous February. At the time, she shared a loving picture to her Instagram of the couple in a canoe, writing alongside it, "The strongest and sweetest songs yet remain to be sung (Whitman)."

"In the midst of these uncertain times, we've been blessed with a joyful reminder of what's most important," the Fear the Walking Dead star wrote alongside the snapshot.

"Our first little one will be joining us this summer. 🍼Sending love to you and your families, may you stay safe and healthy. 💗" Grace added.
