Emmy-nominated Hollywood actress Cheryl Hines, best known for her role in the television show "Curb Your Enthusiasm," has married into one of America’s storied families -- the Kennedys. In a ceremony Saturday on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Hines wed Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son Ethel Kennedy, 86, and Bobby Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968.

E! News reported Kennedy and Hines began dating in 2012. Kennedy has been a long time environmental crusader, a philosophy Hines adopted when they began dating. “I’ve changed out all the light bulbs,” the actress told People Magazine earlier this year at the UCLA IoES Evening of Environmental Excellence event. “It sounds ridiculous, but I turn off my air conditioner and heater. We have beautiful weather in LA. I don’t know why I never opened my windows! Now I turn everything off.”

The wedding took place on the Kennedy’s family estate in Hyannis Port where the Ethel Kennedy still resides. The events were attended by people like former Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., one of the grooms several famous cousins.

The nuptials are not a first for the bride or the groom. Hines was previously married to producer Paul Young for eight years, with whom she had her daughter, Catherine Rose Young. This will be Kennedy’s third trip down the aisle -- the father of six had his first two children with ex-wife Emily Ruth Black and four more children with his late ex-wife Mary Kathleen Richardson. Rumors and drama swirled surrounding Richardson, who long-suffered from substance abuse and depression, and committed suicide just days after Kennedy filed for a divorce in May 2012.
