Us Weekly exclusively confirmed in September 2011 that the Just Friends actress and the HGTV host tied the knot in Traverse City, Michigan, after dating for one year. "He's from there and my parents live there, so it's been my second home since I was very young," Smart explained to Us at the time. The newlyweds were joined by 215 guests and the bride wore a Carolina Herrera gown.

Smart and Oosterhouse co-own a winery called Bonobo in Traverse City, which Oosterhouse first launched in 2000. "It's a place for people to come enjoy themselves, relax, [and] we are hoping to make it dog-friendly," Smart told Us in May 2013. "So it's not just a place to come drink wine, though of course the wine will be amazing, but it is also a place for people to come and have a little experience."
