Cheryl Hines is now officially a member of one of the most storied American dynasties of all time.

E! News confirms the Curb Your Enthusiasm star married Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on Saturday afternoon at matriarch Ethel Kennedy's estate within the famed Kennedy family compound in Hyannis Port, on Massachusetts' Cape Cod. 

The bride wore a strapless white Romona Keveža Collection dress with delicate pearl beading and a full, waltz-length skirt.

"Cheryl Hines continues the Kennedy legacy of iconic women with timeless style," Keveža said in a statement.

The groom's 86-year-old mother, Ethel Kennedy, is the widow of Bobby Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968, and 60-year-old RFK Jr. is the third of their 11 children together.

He and Hines started dating in 2012 and it was revealed that they were engaged this past April.

"I really like this guy," Hines emotionally told People back in March at the UCLA IoES Evening of Environmental Excellence, which she hosted. "I'm sorry, I just really like him."

And while she was already active in certain causes before meeting RFK Jr., she acknowledged that she had since adopted some of his environmentalist ways.

"I've changed out all the lightbulbs," the 48-year-old actress said. "It sounds ridiculous, but I turn off my air conditioner and heater. We have beautiful weather in L.A. I don't know why I never opened my windows! Now I turn off everything."

Former Rep. Patrick Kennedy, a son of late Sen. Edward Kennedy and one of the groom's many cousins, confirmed yesterday that the nuptials would be taking place today with a number of their famously named relatives in attendance.

This is the second trip down the aisle for Hines, who has a daughter with ex-husband Paul Young, and the third marriage for Kennedy.

He is a father of six, two kids with first wife Emily Ruth Black and four—including onetime Taylor Swift beau Conor Kennedy—with his late second wife Mary Kathleen Richardson, who committed suicide four days after RFK Jr. filed for divorce in May 2012. She had suffered from depression and substance-abuse issues.
