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.
