Kemper's co-stars Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) and Mindy Kaling (The Office) reportedly attended the nuptials.

Kemper announced her engagement on TBS' Conan in December. Koman is a former writer for the host's NBC show Late Night With Conan O'Brien as well as The Colbert Report.

"He's a really good guy," said O'Brien of Koman, who also is the co-creator of Adult Swim series Eagleheart, on the December episode where Kemper shared her news.

While Kemper told O'Brien that Koman is adored by most of her family, she did tell a story about her grandfather grilling him during Thanksgiving and telling her to "keep her options open" while making a pecan vs. pumpkin pie reference.

"My grandpa said, 'Ellie, what kind of pie are you gonna have?' and I said, 'I don't know, Grandpa. They both look really good. I think I'll have pecan,'" she said. "He said, 'Are you sure, Ellie, because it's OK to keep your options open. You don't have to settle on a pie right now.'

"He was like, 'Who knows what other pies might present themselves?'"

The Office's ninth season premieres Sept. 20.
