Harrison and Flockhart tie the knot

Posted: Updated:

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart have tied the knot — in a wedding presided over by New Mexico's governor.

Gov. Bill Richardson confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that the couple, who have been together for several years and got engaged last year, were married at the governor's mansion in Santa Fe.

Ford's publicist, Ina Treciokas, confirmed the nuptials Wednesday.

Richardson presided over the ceremony Tuesday afternoon at the mansion on a hilltop along the northern edge of Santa Fe. Richardson has played host at the mansion to Spanish royalty, North Korean diplomats and other Hollywood stars, but this marked the first wedding there during his tenure.

Richardson isn't ordained so he had some help from New Mexico Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles Daniels to make Ford and Flockhart's union official.

The governor and his staff were tightlipped about details of the ceremony, saying it was "a private matter."

Ford and Flockhart's marriage was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.com.

Known best to moviegoers as Han Solo or Indiana Jones, Ford's career has spanned both acting and producing. In 1986, he was nominated for an Oscar for "Witness" and was named Harvard's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year a decade later. He also won lifetime achievement honors from the American Film Institute in 2000 and the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes in 2002.

His most recent project is "Cowboys and Aliens," a sci-fi thriller he is starring in along with Daniel Craig. Filming started in New Mexico this month.

Flockhart, the former "Ally McBeal" star, returned to series TV in 2006 with a role on the ABC drama "Brothers & Sisters."
