It's been two weeks since Lev and Dunham's outdoor nuptials, when the Full House alum celebrated her son's big day by sharing a series of photos and referring to the couple as "Mr. and Mrs. Lev Bure."

She then went on to describe what it was like to see her son get married. "Words cannot express the joy we have felt this weekend celebrating the marriage of our son and his bride Elliott. We gained a beautiful daughter and a wonderful family to do life with," Candace wrote in the caption of her Instagram post. "My heart is so full ♥️♥️♥️."

"We talked, we ate, speeches were given, toasts were made, we laughed, we danced, we celebrated 🥂! What a glorious day!!!! This mama is over the moon HAPPY!!!!" she added.

Photos from the ceremony show Candace in a gold strapless dress as she escorted her son, wearing a classic tux, down the aisle. Other members of the Bure family were accounted for in the photos, too, as the actress also shares daughter Natasha, 25, and son Maksim, 22, with husband Valeri Bure.

Candace previously revealed her son's engagement to Us Weekly in November 2023, explaining that she was "gaining a daughter very soon" and "very excited" for their ceremony.

She jokingly added of her involvement in the wedding planning, "Am I a [mother of the] groomzilla? No, I'm not. I promise you I'm not. I feel like it probably is different to be the mother of a groom than the mother of the bride.”

Ultimately, Candace said she was "just being available and supportive" of the duo ahead of their big day.

The actress previously opened up about life with an "empty nest" in 2020, as she described on Good Morning America what it was like to not "have any kids at home anymore."

"It went so fast," she said. "Everyone says that, but when you’re in the position you realize how fast it goes.”

In an Instagram video that she shared at the time, Candace read a children's book to her dog Boris, who she joked was "the only one I have left at home." “He is my big, 130-lb. Rottweiler. He is ginormous," she shared. "His head is twice the size of mine.”
