Eva Amurri, Susan Sarandon's actress daughter, tied the knot with former MLS soccer player Kyle Martino on Saturday afternoon in Charleston, South Carolina, where the groom's parents reside.

Amurri's rep told People magazine that Sarandon and Tim Robbins, who helped raise Amurri during his 21-year relationship with her mother, organized the nuptials.

According to the weekly, the wedding weekend kicked off with a scavenger hunt, cocktail party and an oyster roast and barbeque rehearsal dinner.

The ceremony was officiated by Sister Helen Prejean, who was the subject of Sarandon's 1995 film "Dead Man Walking."

Amurri, Sarandon and the bridesmaids wore dresses by designer Lela Rose. The bride told People of her gown, "I tried it on and it was over."

The 30-year-old groom, who is a Fox Soccer Channel commentator, wore a Brioni tuxedo.

Amurri was born to Sarandon and Italian filmmaker Franco Amurri. She got her start in Hollywood appearing in several of her mother's films including "Dead Man Walking," "Anywhere but Here" and "The Banger Sisters."

The 26-year-old actress went on to star opposite Macaulay Culkin, Mandy Moore and Jena Malone in the dark comedy "Saved!" and in films like "The Education of Charlie Banks," "The Life Before Her Eyes," "Middle of Nowhere" and "New York, I Love You."

Amurri recently had a recurring role on the Showtime series, "Californication," where she portrayed a student and love interest of David Duchovny's Hank Moody.

The couple announced their engagement in December 2010. The actress made the announcement in a Tweet that read, "What a week: I became a cartoon character, did a Maxim shoot, and got engaged! Lol. Not bad, not bad. Thanks for all the congrats!! Xoxo."
