Inside Bridgit Mendler’s Marriage to Griffin Cleverly

Everyone’s favorite big sister, Bridgit Mendler, continues to offer the best advice — only this time via social media and not via a video camera like on Good Luck Charlie.

Mendler has had a busy career since she left Disney Channel in 2014. She took her acting skills into more roles that were appropriate to her age. For example, Mendler starred in 2014’s NBC’s Undateable, where she played Candace for two seasons before joining Netflix to star alongside Disney Channel star Ashley Tisdale in Father of the Year and Merry Happy Whatever to play. But in addition to working to further her acting career after her Disney Channel days, Mendler also went back to school.

In 2018, Mendler announced that she is attending the Massachusetts Institute of Technology after graduating from the University of Southern California, where she majored in anthropology, per E! News. Then, in 2021, according to her LinkedIn profile, Mendler announced that she was going to Harvard Law School. And as if an acting career and her education weren’t enough, Mendler also started dating and eventually married her significant other, Griffin Cleverly, during that time. And it seems Mendler is now teaching fans that the more private you keep your relationship online, the better – because the “Good Luck Charlie” star rarely posts cleverly. But without the frequent posts, fans wanted to know more about their former favorite Disney Channel star and husband.

Bridgit Mendler and Griffin Cleverly married in 2019

Despite Bridgit Mendler’s busy schedule as an actress and scientist, Mendler and Griffin Cleverly tied the knot in October 2019 after a two-year relationship. The ceremony was on a beach and private for the couple’s friends and family.

While details about the wedding remained close to the couple, Mendler posted a photo from the day she can be seen with Cleverly after the ceremony — smiling with their arms around each other. In the photo, Mendler is wearing an A-line spaghetti strap dress with a tulle skirt. The Disney Channel star kept her hair down with loose curls and a veil on top of her head. Clever wore a dark suit with a red tie to match his bride.

While both Mendler and Cleverly only posted a photo from the wedding, the private ceremony between the two was “magical,” Mendler told Extra. “It was a great sunset and there was even this guy who built a sandcastle behind us when we got married. I could just see him in the line of my eye while we were saying our vows,” Mendler said. And in a symbolic moment, in the photo Mendler posted, the sandcastle can be seen to the left of her and Cleverly. Otherwise, the two did not reveal more about their marriage or relationship. But it seems Mendler’s “good luck” charm after leaving Disney Channel is staying private.

Bridgit Mendler and Griffin decided to go private after their wedding

Following Bridgit Mendler and Griffin Cleverly’s wedding in 2019, the two have decided to pursue private lives. She’s only posted to Instagram a few times, but one was a special birthday wish to Cleverly. “Happy 30th to my husband!! Love you so much wild person I can’t wait to see you rock this decade,” the ‘Good Luck Charlie’ actor wrote in 2021 alongside a carousel of photos. But while the two keep their relationship hidden from the public eye, it appears to be working out — and what they both want.

Back in 2016, Mendler explained that after being on Disney Channel and touring, she needed privacy and time away from the spotlight to reconnect with herself. “I’ve always been a shy person, so to say what I really feel without holding back – it’s hard because I don’t want to disappoint [or] rock the boat,” Mendler said at the time. But since then, Mendler seems to have found herself again and just been doing what makes her happy — like releasing music in 2017, getting back into acting, and going back to school. And she’s done it all with Cleverly and her fans by her side.” “You’re always told you have to fit into a nice little package… I feel like I’m so many different things. And that’s what I love about me,” says Mendler said.
