This is the 1st marriage for Flockhart, 45.  She has a 10 year old son, Liam, who she adopted as an infant.  He was born January 1st, 2001.
Ford and Flockhart have been dating since they met at the Golden Globes in 2002.  She accidentally* spilled* wine on him.
Although Ford and Flockhart have been dating for 8 years they have tried to protect their privacy.  Their wedding was no exception.  No paparazzi were present and few details were made available to the public.
There was something special about it, though.  It took place at the New Mexico governor’s mansion* and governor Bill Richardson, who was a candidate for the U.S. presidency in 2008 but lost the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama, hosted* the event.
Ford is in New Mexico to film “Cowboys and Aliens” an adaptation of a comic book, which will be in cinemas next summer.
