The Love Story

Three months after running into Sánchez at an L.A. party in 2005, Winter says, "It finally crossed my mind to ask her out." Their sushi dinner went well, so the next date was an entire weekend away in Mammoth Lakes, Calif.

Winter popped the question on a midnight kayak ride through a bioluminescent bay in Puerto Rico in December 2007. "I was petrified she would drop the ring," he says. "It never left the box. She accepted; I shut the box and told her she could see it again on land."

The Ring

Sánchez's favorite jeweler, Michael Barin of Studio City, Calif., designed the 4.3-carat sparkler, a radiant square-cut center stone set in platinum.

The couple had 250 guests at their four-day November 2008 event in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, near Sánchez's hometown. The ceremony was held at Castillo de San Cristóbal, a fort in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The Dress(es)

The crystal-and-pearl-embellished silk organza gown (center) Sánchez wore for the ceremony had only one glitch: She had trouble walking in it! "I had to kick my legs to move down the aisle," says Sánchez. The actress slipped into the flirty silk-satin chiffon dress with feathers (right) for her first dance, and wore the silk-and-organza gown (left) later in the night.

The Reception

Milly Centeno of MC Coordinators in Puerto Rico planned the party and used fiery cymbidium orchids dressed up guests' place settings at the reception, which was held at the Caribe Hilton Hotel. "By 4 A.M., I was in jeans and a tank top," Sánchez says. "Security told me they'd never seen a bride be the last to leave!"

Sánchez requested her baker's acclaimed vanilla cake (with layers of cookies and cream filling) instead of her favorite flavor, red velvet.
