Meryl Streep’s Actress Daughter Mamie Ties the Knot


Congratulations to actress Mamie Gummer and fiancee Ben Walker, star of Broadway’s “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.” the couple tied the knot over the weekend, sources say, at a very small and private wedding at the home of Meryl Streep and Don Gummer, Mamie’s acting, sculpting parents. There aren’t a lot of details except that there weren’t any celebrities, it was mostly family and close friends. Mamie’s sisters were the bridesmaids. There was a regular wedding band, no Aerosmith or Tony Bennett flown in for the occasion. I do know the wedding was held outdoors at the Gummers’ Connecticut summer home. Walker has just finished “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” Gummer, who’ll be 28 next month, is on a tear doing TV (“Off the Map,” “The Good Wife”) and New York theater. It’s unlikely they’ll be selling wedding pictures to the tabloids. I will say that I spent time with this couple at Vanity Fair’s Oscar party this year, and they are just super. They’re even registered at Restoration Hardware if you want to send a gift. Here’s to a lot of happiness!
