Eastwood's mom Maggie was on hand for the festivities, as was her proud papa, Clint. Recalling the day he asked the legendary director-actor for permission to marry Alison, Poitras told Westlake magazine, "That was kind of intimidating ... He looked at me for four or five seconds, which felt like 15 minutes, and then he said, 'You're going to have to take that up with her.' I said, 'Is that a yes or a no?' And he said, 'That's a yes,' and he shook my hand."
