"We had bought matching onesies and she proposed while we were wearing our matching onesies."

Days before their big day, Grant told the news outlet that they were very excited and that she's thankful to have Skau in her life.


The couple celebrated with a fun-filled reception at a private home in Palo Alto after tying the knot in front of 25 guests at San Francisco's City Hall.

"Games will be a really big part of the wedding," said Skau at the time. "We'll have lawn games and then after a chef cooks a five-course dinner, we'll play some party games like Taboo and Telestrations."


"The most important thing for us is that it would be a day for us to connect with each other," said Grant. "We're not a traditional couple, so it was really important for us to do something that represents us and our relationship."

Grant and Skau initially met on a dating app and started dating in 2016. They got engaged a year later.


"I thought it was coming, but it was a surprise," said Grant. "We had bought matching onesies and she proposed while we were wearing our matching onesies. And then we played card games. It was sweet, intimate, joyful and playful."

Grant departed "NCIS: New Orleans" in 2018, as reported by Variety. Her manager Didi Rea said:

"It's just time for a change. This is about moving on to the next great thing."


After departing the hit show, Grant played as FBI agent Tess Rogers on the third season of the Netflix horror-comedy series "Santa Clarita Diet," Deadline reported.

Raised in Petersburg, Virginia, Grant attended high school at the Baltimore School for the Arts in Maryland, where she was a YoungArts Winner in Theater and Presidential Scholar in the Arts, according to IMDB.

When she was 17 years old, she got a scholarship to attend the Julliard School. In 2010, she graduated from Juilliard with a B.F.A. in Drama.

Grant's other notable projects are "Mercy Street," "The Good Wife," "Battle Creek," "Melissa & Joey," and "Rehearsing a Dream."
