Historic Charleston was the charming setting for the heartfelt nuptials of actress Eva Amurri and sports commentator Kyle Martino. Their October 29, 2011, wedding capped off a grand three-day affair, complete with a bridal luncheon, cocktail party, and scavenger hunt organized by the pair.
Flanked by mom Susan Sarandon and stepfather Tim Robbins, Eva walked down the aisle to a gospel choir's rendition of Beyonce's "Halo" before joining her groom to exchange self-penned vows. "We promised to enjoy each other every day," she says.
After their engagement, Eva and Kyle scouted wedding sites in Charleston, South Carolina, a location chosen for its genteel Southern flavor and for the nostalgia factor: Kyle had vacationed there as a child, and all his siblings had wed there, too. They happened upon the stately Confederate Home, built in the early 1800s, and the property's courtyard filled with giant oaks won them over.
Here, the trees framed the couple as they said "I do."
