The Love Story
Winter popped the question on a midnight kayak ride through a bioluminescent bay in Puerto Rico in December 2007.
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.
Crystal bouquet jewelry made Sánchez's tropical bouquet pop. The bride added matching touches to her satin wrap.
The crystal-and-pearl-embellished silk organza gown (center) Sánchez wore for the ceremony had only one glitch. 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.
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.
Sánchez requested her baker's acclaimed vanilla cake (with layers of cookies and cream filling) instead of her favorite flavor, red velvet.
