Robert F. Kennedy Jr. tied the knot with actress Cheryl Hines Saturday afternoon with 300 guests in attendance including matriarch Ethel Kennedy at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts – after a several hour delay caused by heavy rains and street closures.
Cheryl’s guests included co-star Larry David, comedian Kevin Nealon, Julia Louis Dreyfus and writer-producer Shane Nickerson.The reception took place in massive tents adjacent to one of the Kennedy homes, and featured the music of The Sultans of Swing a local Boston group – joined by Natasha Bedingfield and country music’s Lyle Lovett.
Ted Kennedy Jr toasted the couple. ’Bobby, you are the most adventuresome, the most loving, the most inclusive person in our family,’he said. ‘And Cheryl, you are so warm, you are so unflappable.’ Bobby recalled in his toast that when he met Cheryl he sought Larry David’s advice, confiding that he had misgivings because she was an actress. ’I asked, Larry what was she like, shall I get involved?’ he said. Larry responded ‘Yes,’ describing her as ‘the most solid’ person.’
RFK Jr married actress Cheryl Hines – despite allegations that he cheated on her. It is claimed the environmental lawyer had an affair with Chelsea Kirwan, the estranged wife of famed plastic surgeon Laurence Kirwan behind the back of his fiancée Cheryl Hines.
Kennedy’s six children from his two previous marriages and Hines’ daughter from her previous marriage were all be in attendance.
