    Lynch — who is currently performing as Miss Hannigan in the Broadway revival of Annie — and Embry, 44, tied the knot at an intimate ceremony in Sunderland, Mass., on May 31, 2010, a year after the two met a fund-raiser in San Francisco.

    Reportedly, 21 guests were in attendance for the 20-minute ceremony, and a live jazz band played afterward.
