Castle star Stana Katic is married! The 37-year-old actress celebrated her birthday by saying "I do" to Kris Brkljac, her longtime boyfriend, during a private ceremony on the Dalmatian coast of Croatia this past weekend.
The wedding, according to the actress's rep, was held in "in a private family monastery on the Dalmatian coast," the spokesperson told People of the nuptials. All other details — like that of the Castle star and business efficiency consultant's long-lasting relationship — have remained mute.

Katic's destination wedding makes sense: Although she was raised in Canada, she comes from Croatian and Serbian descent. When talking to People a few months back about her passion project, the non-profit she founded Alternative Travel Project, Katic alluded to that sense of tradition her heritage gives her and how it made her an environmentally conscious person. "My 'normal' has always been to have a veggie garden and a few fruit trees in the backyard," she said. It's no wonder she wanted to get wed on the Dalmatian coast.
Along with the statement, Katic's rep shared a picture from the wedding: a black-and-white snap of Katic and Brkljac's hands together, with what looks like thick matching platinum bands. Quite minimalist and striking, if you ask us!
This may be her first marriage in real-life, but Katic's character, Kate Beckett married fellow character Richard Castle in the most recent season of the hit ABC crime drama. Filming just wrapped for the show's seventh season, which is probably she was able to jet off to the Adriatic sea to exchange vows.
