Clint Eastwood gave away his daughter at her lavish wedding in California this past weekend.
Clint Eastwood daughter's wedding took place at Saddlepeak Lodge in California this weekend, with Alison Eastwood donning a stunning 1930's inspired beaded gown by Les Habitudes for her nuptials with 'Chainsaw Gang' sculptor Stacy Poitras. The couple's rings were designed by Philip Press.
"We are thrilled to be surrounded by our family for this very special day and appreciate their love and support as we begin our married life together," the happy couple told People magazine. As well as Clint Eastwood, the guests also include Alison's mother Maggie, her jazz musician brother Kyle Eastwood, actor brother Scott Eastwood, sister Kathryn Eastwood, as well as Clint's current wife Dina Eastwood and Poitras's brothers Mark, Matt and Bobby.
The guests dined on a lavish menu that included salmon and elk, though the bride chowed down on a vegetarian meal. Her husband, who stars on the CMT show about artists who make sculptures with chainsaws, met Alison five years ago when she rode her horse to his studio at the Rustic Canyon General Store and Grill in California.

In The Spring (tagline: "Live spelled backwards is evil.") Kyle MacLachlan stars as a hapless widower who, through an incredible series of unfortunate coincidences, ends up stranded in a town that just so happens to harbor a fountain of youth.

Star/writer/director Gregory "Mars" Martin has certainly taken a few lessons from watching Walken. As pool prodigy Johnny Doyle, Martin sports bouffant Walken-esque hair and mimics the actor's famously off-kilter verbal cadence, but has no idea how to craft a performance aside from these affectations. As an orphaned kid, Doyle was taken under the wing of a mobster named Joe (Chazz Palminteri) who taught him to be a pool-playing con man. Years later, Doyle learns that Joe screwed him out of a chance to go professional, and he turns on his former benefactor - a decision that comes back to haunt him when Joe returns looking for revenge with a professional ringer (a surprisingly convincing Rick Schroder) in tow. Doyle is trying to keep his relationship with girlfriend Tara (Alison Eastwood) afloat despite her disapproval over his pool shark ways, and also attempting to steer his eager brother Danny (Michael Rosenbaum) and his gang of straight-out-of-central-casting wisecracking buddies away from a life of hustling.
