Eighty-six year old Dick Van Dyke looks like a giddy young groom with his bride in a photo from the couple’s intimate wedding.

The actor tied the knot with makeup artist Arlene Silver, 40, on Leap Day this year. The couple beamed as they cut their two-tier wedding cake topped with red flowers.

The bride wore a form fitting red dress, which was from Anthropologie, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which first published the photo.

Van Dyke and Silver met six years ago at the SAG Awards.

“It’s a really nice relationship, most people like her a lot,” the actor’s publicist Bob Palmer told ABCNews.com. “Despite their obvious age difference, Dick has never been happier. She brings a lot of light into his life.”

This is Van Dyke’s second marriage.
