Her father once implored us to “Let Love Rule,” and now, Zoë Kravitz, the genetically-blessed daughter of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz, has done just that, marrying longtime boyfriend Karl Glusman in a star-studded wedding at her father’s home in Paris, France, on Saturday. (Bonus points if you also get the musical reference in our headline.)


As Us Weekly reports, the two actors have actually been legally (if somewhat secretly) married since late May but opted to have a more traditional ceremony in France—which coincidentally was also the site of a celebrity-laden second ceremony for newlyweds Joe Jonas and Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner this weekend.

Zoë’s proud papa posted a photo from the couple’s pre-wedding dinner at the Lapérouse restaurant on Saturday, where the 30-year-old Big Little Lies star and face of Saint Laurent stayed true to her cool-girl style in a pearl-embellished white fishnet dress over silk bike shorts and bandeau by CFDA Fashion Fund finalist Danielle Frankel.

In addition to mom Lisa, father Lenny, stepfather Jason Momoa and Zoë’s siblings Nakoa-Wolf and Lola Iolani Momoa, the happy couple were joined by Denzel and Pauletta Washington and Zoë’s co-stars from Big Little Lies, including Nicole Kidman, who famously dated Lenny in the early aughts (the two were rumored to be engaged at the time).

But as Lenny noted to People ahead of the nuptials, though the marriage of his only child was, in and of itself, “a trip” and “emotional for all the reasons anybody would understand,” there was one famous face who was deeply missed at the festivities. His mother, Roxie Roker, had hoped to be there to see her only grandchild walk down the aisle. Sadly, The Jeffersons series regular died of breast cancer in 1995.


“[T]hat’s the one thing my mother talked about before she died, that she wanted to live long enough to see her granddaughter get married,” Kravitz said.

Still, there was reportedly plenty to be jubilant about this weekend. As Zoë revealed to Rolling Stone last year, the couple, who met in 2016, quietly became engaged in 2018 “at home, in sweatpants” while “a little drunk,” rather than the Parisian proposal Glusman initially had planned, making their wedding destination particularly romantic—and the pre-party a joy-filled occasion.


“Any room with Lenny and Jason and Denzel in it, well…was crazy and insane,” Lapérouse co-owner Grégory Lentz told People. “There was so much love in the room. There were toasts and they were moving into tequila when I left. They were still going at 2 a.m.


“It was a tremendously joyous party,” he added.

We’ll be staying tuned for more details on the wedding—including the bride’s undoubtedly incredible ceremonial attire. But as the famously blended family of Kravitz, Bonet, and Momoa now expands to include Glusman, no doubt the tribe celebrated in high style all wedding-weekend long, because as Lenny sang, “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.”


(On that note: Not to upstage the bride, but can we just put a pin in this by drooling over Lenny barefoot in a tux?)
