Director and producer Clint Eastwood watched as his daughter Alison Eastwood tied the knot with her beau of five years Stacy Poitras in an intimate ceremony at the Saddlepeak Lodge in Calabasas, California, Friday.
Alison is Clint's daughter from his first marriage to Maggie Johnson. The happy couple was surrounded by family and close friends as they started a new chapter in their life. Alison's jazz musician brother Kyle Eastwood and her actor brother Scott Eastwood attended the intimate ceremony, their sister Kathryn Eastwood was also in attendance along with Clint's wife Dina Eastwood. Poitras's brothers Matt, Bobby and Mark also joined in the festivities.
Alison chose a Les Habitudes beaded gown which was inspired by the 1930s. The couple exchanged rings that were designed by Philip Press.
The newly-wedded couple told People Magazine that they were excited that the important people were present at the ceremony. "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 couple said.
After the nuptials, the guests dined on a menu that included salmon and elk; a special vegetarian meal was made for Alison.
Alison and Poitras first met each other five years ago and they announced their engagement in 2012. However, before proposing to Alison, Poitras first asked Clint's permission.
Poitras told the March/April issue of Westlake Magazine that when he asked Clint, "He looked at me for four or five seconds, which felt like 15 minutes, and then he said, 'You're going to have to take that up with her. I said, 'Is that a yes or a no?' And he said, 'That's a yes," and he shook my hand."
Alison has described Poitras as her "best friend."
Poitras is the gang leader on the hit CMT show "Chainsaw Gang," a show in which a group of artists make sculptures with chainsaws.
40-year-old Alison has taken after her father and is also a director and producer. She also launched the Eastwood Ranch Foundation, which is a charity that raises funds and awareness for animals.
