Colin Hanks marries Samantha Bryant, luring A-list guests to a WeHo rooftop

May 10, 2010 | 10:33 am

Colin-hanks-web Colin Hanks married fiancée Samantha Bryant in West Hollywood on Saturday, People reports. Preparation for the A-list event at a hotel rooftop pool began Friday, says E! Online, and involved the gentle relocation -- free drinks included -- of a few hotel guests. 

The actor and the publicist met through mutual friends and have been engaged since June, the mag says. Among the guests on top of the London Hotel: papa Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson; dad's buddy from the office, Steven Spielberg; a discreet Alyssa Milano; and Reese Witherspoon, whom Us Weekly reports got a loving smooch and hug from new beau Jim Toth as the ceremony ended.

Colin Hanks' mom is the late Samantha Lewes, the first wife of Tom Hanks (who, not surprisingly, did not tweet from the event). The 32-year-old's Fox show "The Good Guys" premieres May 19.

Other bursts of wedded bliss Saturday included Heidi Klum and Seal renewing their vows in Mexico and Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott doing the same in Beverly Hills.
