“What’s truly special about this one is that, no matter what projects I’m involved in in the future, this one will always have a special meaning because I got to film a special project and meet someone special,” he continued.

Officials records show that the two filed for a marriage certificate in Florida earlier this month. They officially wed on Oct. 12, PWInsider reports.

Shariatzadeh was born in Iran, however, she is a Canadian citizen. She reportedly works for a tech company in Vancouver as a product manager.
