Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt are Wed

The ‘Friends’ actress and the ‘Fight Club’ actor were married on July 29th

Posted on

Jennifer Aniston, an actress, was married July 29 to William Bradley Pitt, an actor. The modest $1 million ceremony took place at the Malibu, Calif., home of Marcy Carsey, a television producer.

Ms. Aniston, 31, stars on the TV series Friends. The bride’s father, John, a soap opera actor, escorted her down the aisle. Mr. Pitt, 36, is employed as a film actor and reluctant sex symbol in the Los Angeles area. He attended the University of Missouri, where he pursued a degree in journalism. The groom’s father, Bill, is a former trucking company manager; his mother, Jane, a school counselor.

Guests dined on lobster, danced to traditional Greek music, and signed confidentiality agreements. Fireworks and police helicopters shared the cloudless sky, and a 12-year-old Frank Sinatra impersonator sang for the couple. Ms. Aniston wore a Silvia Damiani ring and a $52,000 Lawrence Steele pearl-encrusted gown. This is the first marriage for both.
