While America celebrated its independence this weekend, two celebrities joined the union – of marriage.
On Saturday, Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Tori Spelling wed actor-writer Charlie Shanian in a splashy ceremony befitting her zip code, while on Sunday in Montana, Dennis Quaid quietly married Texas real estate agent Kimberly Buffington.
Spelling, 31, and Shanian, 34, tied the knot at the grand mansion of her father, TV producer Aaron Spelling, who marched her down the aisle before 400 guests. The bride wore Badgley Mischka. It was a dual ceremony, performed by both a rabbi and a minister.
In attendance from 90210 days: Jason Priestley (with bride-to-be Naomi Lowde), Jennie Garth (with hubby Peter Facinelli), Ian Ziering and Tiffani Thiessen (with boyfriend Brady Smith).
Older Hollywood was also well represented: Paul Anka, Stefanie Powers, Ed McMahon and Bob Newhart, along with his former costar, Suzanne Pleshette, and her husband, Tom Poston.
It is a first marriage for both.
Meanwhile, Quaid, 50, and Buffington, 32, tied the knot with Quaid’s best man being his 12-year-old son, Jack Henry Quaid (with ex-wife Meg Ryan), and the bride’s attendant was her brother, Blake Buffington, Quaid’s spokeswoman Cara Tripicchio tells the Associated Press.
The two met in March 2003 when a mutual friend introduced them at a dinner in Austin, Texas. The Day After Tomorrowstar was previously married to actress P.J. Soles, from 1978 to 1983, and to actress Ryan, from 1991 to 2001.
