Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Cheryl Hines Wed

Kennedy, 60, and Hines, 48, tied the knot at Ethel Kennedy’s home on the Kennedy Compound surrounded by their families and friends. They were married by Unitarian Universalist minister Rev. William F. Schulz, reported The New York Times. Following the wedding ceremony, the reception was celebrated “at Teddy’s place” on the compound.

For the nuptials, Hines wore a white strapless tea-length gown by Romona Keveza, according to People magazine. Among the more notable guests of the wedding was Hines’ Curb Your Enthusiasm costar Larry David, as well as Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Sen. Ed Markey, Kevin Nealon and Ed Begley.

According to both Hines and Kennedy, Larry David is responsible for introducing them. After two years of dating, Kennedy proposed to Hines in April of this year. Initially, Hines and Kennedy, who both have previous marriages, were keen to forgo an elaborate wedding. However, one thing led to another, and the couple ended up throwing the Cape Cod fete.
