Los Angeles, August 3:Ali Larter, star of the hit television series Heroes, has tied the holy knot with her longtime boyfriend, actor Hayes MacArthur, at his family estate in Kennebunkport, Maine on Saturday evening, a rep for the actress exclusively told People magazine.
Ali and Hayes have been engaged for almost two years, and the twosome announced their marriage plans in December 2007.
Wedding bells finally ring
After a lengthy engagement, the couple finally got married this weekend. The 33-year-old actress Ali and the 32-year-old Chicago native and actor Hayes exchanged vows in a small, outdoor ceremony at Hayes’ mother and stepfather Shelley and Bill Farley's Kennebunkport, Maine home, which is near the former President George H.W. Bush's summer compound, on Saturday, Aug. 1, People reports.
The outdoor ceremony included Irish music, a toast to the groom's heritage. Ali was walked down the aisle by her dad and carried a simple matching bouquet as guests looked on, the magazine says.
For the wedding, the bride wore a Vera Wang sweetheart neck, A-line gown of Chantilly with hand-pieced corded lace appliqué, while her groom donned a Ralph Lauren Black Label peak-lapel tuxedo and Polo Ralph Lauren bow tie, according to People.
Among the guests, who arrived at the wedding on trolleys, were actress Amy Smart, Ali’s co-star in ''Varsity Blues,'' the film that catapulated her to stardom as well as MacArthur's former football teammates from Maine's Bowdoin College.
Ali and Hayes, who were co-stars in 2007 "National Lampoon's Homo Erectus," have been dating for years before then getting engaged in December 2007. Months after her engagement to Hayes, Ali, known for her whipped cream bikini in “Varsity Blues,” said of her soon-to-be-hubby that he "brought light to my life. I feel lucky every morning when I wake up and see him."
Ali’s desire for a family
Ali, who first met Hayes while working on Adam Rifkin's film “Homo Erectus,” said in the February 2009 issue of Cosmopolitan: “Since I was 15 years old, all I wanted was to find the guy I was going to marry.”
“[Hayes] showed me the way, and all was right. This is how it’s supposed to be… I’m a hopeless romantic,” she said.
In response to a question on family, the actress of films “Obsessed” and “Legally Blonde” told People back in 2007: “I look forward to that time when I’m home with babies.”
