Following the blessing, the actor explained the song was "a blessing that celebrates new beginnings, like a wedding... and like the new season of 'Homeland,' Sunday's at 9 pm, only on Showtime."

For the first dance, the couple was serenaded by five-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald singing Billy Idol's White Wedding. Check out the performances below!
