Carter Met His Wife Amy While Working On Environmental Concerns
In 2011, the former host of “Carter Can” got married to actress Amy Smart at their home in Traverse City, Michigan. Smart is known for her roles in “Just Friends,” “Shameless,” and “Stargirl.”
They met when they both took care of a school garden. The actress didn’t know at the time that her future husband was a well-known HGTV host, but they soon became close because they both cared about helping the environment.
When Carter and Amy first met, they were both in relationships with other people. Once they were both single again, they got back in touch, and in 2010, they started dating.
About a year later, they got married, and their wedding was held in a way that was good for the environment. Soon after their wedding, the couple told People that “for 220 people,” their big day only made one bag of trash.
