Matthew Modine to Officiate Millie Bobby Brown’s Wedding – Brides

2 minutes, 37 seconds Read

Millie Bobby Brown rose to fame as Eleven in the science fiction series Stranger Things on Netflix. In the show, Dr. Martin Brenner, a government scientist at the Director of Operations played by Matthew Modine, worked on a study that turned kids into weapons for war or conflict and reproduced psychokinetic abilities in Eleven. Although he wasn’t her biological father, Brenner raised Eleven, making her refer to him as “Papa.” Despite their characters’ controversial relationship, Modine and Brown formed a bond while shooting together—so much so that the actress asked Modine to officiate her upcoming wedding to Jack Bongiovi.

While appearing on Access Daily on March 21, 2024, the Oppenheimer actor revealed how he received the honor to preside over the couple’s vow exchange. “I have one of those licenses to get people married, and Millie thought it’d be great,” he shared with co-hosts Mario Lopez and Kit Hoover. “And then, Jake said it would be a great idea. So, I wrote the wedding vows, and they loved what I wrote for them to join hands and to become husband and wife. It’s such a beautiful thing to be able to join two people in holy matrimony.”

Earlier this month, Brown shared with Elle UK that wedding planning has been a joy for the future spouses so far. “I have loved every second of it,” she gushed. “It’s been really an unbelievable journey. Every time we have a new wedding meeting, Jake and I take a picture to capture the moment of the planning process. He’s loving every second of it. I haven’t been met with a stressful time yet, and I think that’s just a reflection on how ready and excited we are to do it.”

Brown and Bongiovi met on Instagram. Although they’ve been linked since June 2021, the couple didn’t go public with their relationship until five months later. “We were friends for a bit, and then, what can I say?” the Enola Holmes star told Wired. In a later interview for The Sunday Times, Brown revealed that even though the two of them were in the friend zone for a bit, they were inseparable. “After we met, we knew we never wanted to leave each other’s side,” she recalled. “You can’t pinpoint why [someone is ‘the one’]. It’s just the feeling of knowing that’s the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.”

In April 2023, the pair announced their engagement on social media and debuted Brown’s diamond engagement ring. While speaking with the outlet, the actress shared that Bongiovi proposed with her mother’s bauble. “I’ve always loved that ring,” Brown expressed. “It’s always stuck out to me, so she gave it to Jake. They were in cahoots about the whole proposal. I love that I can always keep a piece of my mum with me.” During an appearance on The Tonight Show, Brown admitted that Bongiovi popped the question under water, and after the actress said “yes,” she accidentally dropped the ring. Thankfully, Bongiovi quickly retrieved it.
