This is certainly a TV wedding for the books! After nine years of anticipation, The Big Bang Theory's Leonard (played by Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) finally tied the knot Monday night in the show's season nine premiere.
And, while fans were thrilled to see these two lovebirds finally get hitched, they were also a little disappointed by the complications and upset that preluded the all-important ceremony. The on-again couple headed to Vegas to say "I do" in a private ceremony, but before the pair could officially wed, Leonard confessed that he kissed another girl. Yikes!
But in the end things worked out for the twosome and they finally got hitched, with Penny looking very pretty in a sweet and short pink dress — a look that's slightly reminiscent of the pink Vera Wang wedding dress Cuoco-Sweeting wore for her own wedding to husband Ryan Sweeting at the end of 2013. Penny completed her bridal look with a small pink and white bouquet tied with ribbons, and cropped veil. The actress teased an image of her and Galecki's characters exchanging vows at the alter before the premiere with the caption: "We're back baby!!! Don't forget to tune into @bigbangtheory_cbs tonight- I mean it when I say, I've waited for this moment since the pilot," she captioned the snap. "Nine years in the making!!"
Unfortunately the whole gang missed out on watching the wedding take place over Skype because they were too distracted by Amy and Sheldon's bickering, who officially called it quits in this episode. So bittersweet!
So what's next for The Big Bang Theory newlyweds? Unfortunately it's not all honeymoon bliss and affection for Penny and Leonard. E! News reports that next week's episode will see Leonard confronting the woman he kissed to try to ease his new wife's mind. Can't these two lovebirds get a moment of peace?!
