James Gandolfini is a husband again. The actor, best known for his highly acclaimed role as Tony Soprano in the hit HBO's TV series "The Sopranos," married former model Deborah Lin on Saturday, August 30 in her hometown of Honolulu.
Gandolfini, 46, and Lin, 40, exchanged wedding vows in front of close family and friends. Their intimate wedding ceremony, held at Central Union Church, was surrounded by white lilies and rhododendrons. The bride was seen wearing a white gown made of Italian lace, whereas the groom wore a black tuxedo and white tie. A harpist was heard playing the "Hawaiian Wedding Song" in the background.
People magazine reports the wedding and has quoted a wedding guest as confirming, "There was a nice big kiss at the end with both hands on the cheeks. They looked great." Gandolfini's eight-year-old son, Michael, from a previous marriage with Marcy Wudarski, served as best man. The nuptials lasted for about 20 minutes and the newlyweds quickly made their way to a nearby resort for a reception.
Heading for the evening reception in a white limo, Gandolfini and Lin were spotted wearing "long, green leis around their necks," a source confirmed to People, adding that "there were lots of white flowers on the tables and Gandolfini was beaming."
Gandolfini and Lin dated for about one year before they got engaged in late 2007. They made their first public appearance as a couple on the red carpet in March 2007 for the New York City premiere of the second half of the final season of "The Sopranos." The weekend marriage is the first for Lin and the second for Gandolfini. His marriage to first wife Marcy ended in 2002.
