While a record 30 million television viewers tuned in to watch her small screen parents tie the knot back in 1981, when actress Julie Berman– who portrays Luke and Laura Spencer’s daughter Lulu on the daytime drama General Hospital— said “I do” to her love Michael Grady it was in the presence of a much smaller, yet equally as happy gathering of family and friends. On August 15, 2008, the soap stars fellow cast mates Rebecca Herbst, Kirsten Storms, Jane Elliot and Greg Vaughan stood in honor of the bride as she made her grand entrance inside the Sacred Heart Chapel on the campus of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, People magazine reports.
The fabric of the bride’s silk tulle Monique Lhuillier wedding dress brushed the aisle as the actress clutched her bouquet and strolled to the altar where her eight bridesmaids– each dresses in brown Amsale gowns– looked on as she took her place by her groom, who coordinated with the wedding party in his deep chocolate Hugo Boss suit. During the Roman Catholic ceremony, the bride received a wedding band to accompany the engagement ring which marked their May 2007 betrothal during a romantic getaway to London.
Following the exchange of vows, the newlyweds and their guests sampled slices of a five-tier wedding cake lovingly created by the groom’s brother and sister-in-law, who are the proprietors of Vanilla Bake Shop, which recently concocted sweet treats
for Brooke Burke and David Charvet’s baby shower.
The couple plan to celebrate their new marital status with a Hawaiian honeymoon in September 2008.
