Jack Antonoff, the Bleachers’ leading man, reflects on his wedding during ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’.
In a heartfelt conversation on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, Jack Antonoff reminisced about his marriage to actress Margaret Qualley.
Being no stranger to the spotlight, 39-year-old Antonoff assumed that his wedding day would be just another event where he could be his comfortable performer self. However, his experience was quite different. “And then as soon as I walked up there, it was the ultimate — it was the most alone I’ve ever been in my life, in a way, because my bride hadn’t come out yet,” he shared.
His momentary vulnerability was soon replaced with overwhelming emotion. On seeing Qualley, the Grammy-winning musician admitted, “It was beautiful and it was every cliché, and I kind of melted and broke in a very sweet way.”
August 19 was the date of the glamorous wedding held in New Jersey. The star-studded guest list featured renowned names such as Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, Channing Tatum, Zoë Kravitz, and Qualley’s family members, including her mother, Andie MacDowell.
The couple looked elegant – Antonoff in a black suit and Qualley radiant in a custom Chanel wedding gown complemented by matching Chanel Mary Jane flats.
Their romantic journey began in the summer of 2021 and led to an engagement in May 2022. Following their grand wedding, the couple was spotted enjoying newlywed bliss during a leisurely walk in New York City in late August.
In a heartwarming gesture, Antonoff debuted the song “Margaret” at the All Things Go music festival in early October. The track, inspired by Qualley, was a collaborative effort with Lana Del Rey, and Qualley herself witnessed the touching performance from the front row.
2023 has been a monumental year for Antonoff. Beyond his marriage and Grammy award for Producer of the Year, he’s also preparing for fresh releases with his band, Bleachers. September saw the release of “Modern Girl,” the lead single from their highly anticipated fourth studio album.
