According to People, Kerri married attorney Robert Fischer at sunset in her hometown of Tucson, Ariz. on Sunday.

"Robert always wants to make me happy," the 32-year-old told the mag. "He's a little old-fashioned. He really courted me, and for a while. To this day, he still gives me flowers on a regular basis."

The couple reportedly held their reception at the Skyline Country Club, which was decorated with hundreds of orchids. The happy couple also had a fireworks show for their 200 guests and served tea and fresh scones as a morning snack, People reported.
