The ‘Black Widow’ star tied the knot with Colin Jost last year, whilst the world was in lockdown amid the Covid-19 pandemic. 

“I think just keeping it intimate and small made it feel intentional. We wanted it to feel like it had an intentional intimacy as opposed to being something that felt like we were restricted by all these things,” the actress told People.

“We were just so happy to be able to celebrate with our family. Some people we hadn’t been able to really see so much over this past year. So that was really special. We felt really fortunate that we were able to do it,” she adds.

Scarlett also insisted that she and Colin followed all the Covid-19 protocols in planning and hosting their wedding.

Meanwhile, Colin said he didn’t get heavily involved in planning his nuptials because he knows Scarlett has better taste than he does. The wedding is said to have taken place at the actors’ home in Palisades, New York, with only a few family members and friends present.
