Harrison Ford wore Wrangler jeans to his wedding to Calista Flockhart


Last week, Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart got married in Santa Fe, New Mexico, at the governor’s mansion. In fact, the ceremony was presided over by New Mexico’s chief justice, and NM governor Bill Richardson hosted some kind of reception for them. All in all, it had the potential to be a very swanky affair. Not so much, as it turns out. People Magazine says that Harrison was wearing Wrangler jeans for the ceremony. Calista wore a sundress.

Who needs an Armani tux? When Harrison Ford married longtime girlfriend Calista Flockhart on June 15, the movie star opted to tie the knot in more offbeat designer duds: Wrangler jeans.

Completing the laid-back approach to their surprise Santa Fe, New Mexico, nuptials, Flockhart donned a casual white sundress for the outdoor ceremony on the grounds of Gov. Bill Richardson’s hilltop mansion.

Flockhart’s son, Liam, 9, served as ring bearer as the couple exchanged bands and simple vows. Looking on were Gov. Richardson, who performed the simple ceremony; his wife, Barbara; the governor’s official counsel; and New Mexico’s chief justice, Charles W. Daniels, who officially pronounced Ford, 67, and Flockhart, 45, husband and wife.

The intimate, no-frills wedding underscored what those close to them have long known: Ford and Flockhart are in it for the long haul.

“They’re both honest in their approach to life and to each other,” says Bernie Pollack, a Ford pal and his longtime go-to costume designer. “This [marriage] will only enhance what they already had.”

Ford, who is in New Mexico shooting the action-fantasy Cowboys & Aliens, had a day off from work for his wedding, but was back on-set a few days later.

Personally, I think it’s tacky to wear jeans only because it was at the governor’s mansion. If they were getting married on some beach somewhere, sure, wear jeans or a sundress, that’s fine. But the location of the ceremony seemed to demand something a bit more formal. I would even have gone for khakis. Some stone-washed chinos perhaps. In any case, now that I know jeans are allowed, I plan to get married in sweatpants. What? They’re comfortable!

    Those jeans. That earring.

    And the vomit-inducing mix of Hollywood bigwigs and tax-payer supported venues.

  2. Leticia says:

    Earrings on old guys are yucky, in my opinion. I think that Clint has aged more gracefully than this guy. Ford is like the old rich guy in the red corvette…There is one in my neighborhood who tries way too hard.

  3. jill says:

    That man could never be tacky! Looovve him!

  4. locagirl says:

    He is so old but still so sexy…minus that LAME earring.

  5. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Wrangler’s? Levi’s are acceptable, but Wrangler’s? Yuck!

  6. simplicity says:

    “Sweatpants,” ” :) Can’t believe 20 years ago I was trying to talk my hub into an underwater wedding, (scuba gear).

    What, no horse?

  7. RastaPasta says:

    Cowboys wear Wranglers. It’s true; I know a few. Even cowgirls wear Wranglers.

    You have to remember this was the NM Governor’s House — I think their attire was appropriate and … pretty awesome, actually.

    I’m happy for them and for Liam.

  8. Dorothy says:

    Harrison’s ex wife got the best of him in the looks department. That is probably why Calista has never watched Star Wars, it is better not to know what you are missing.

  9. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Not everything is about looks.

  10. Riley says:

    I wonder if his other children came to the ceremony. If not, that is kind of sad; but then, I didn’t go to my father’s third wedding either so I don’t know why I am even thinking about whether Ford is close to his other children.

  11. Kolby says:

    The governor’s mansion is known as “the people’s house” for a reason. You can dress any old way you wish while you’re there. And most governor’s “mansions” aren’t really mansions at all, just really nice houses where the governor stays while working in the state capital. I’m really happy for them, they seem solid and in love. The world needs more of it, you know.

  12. Alarmjaguar says:

    Yah, as a New Mexican, I’ve gotta say that people are pretty casual around here. I actually prefer a sundress and jeans to a bajillion dollar ceremony for two twits who are just trying to sell the pictures to the highest bidder and will probably divorce within the year…I’ll leave you to come up with your own examples.

  13. remote says:

    I don’t get the difference between khakis and chinos– can someone please enlighten me?

    I agree– the earring needs to go– about 20 years ago…

  14. mel says:

    I luv Harrison Ford and have watched the Fugitive a zillion times. Smart move for not spending a ton of money on a marriage that may not last.

  15. SammyHammy says:

    It’s not what they wore that matters. I hope they have a long & happy marriage.

  16. bite me says:

    hope Harrison had her sign a prenup

  17. geez says:

    At least she will not regret spending thousands on a dress once they get divorced. How is it that people can live together umpteen years and cannot stay married two? Let the count down begin…

  18. GatsbyGal says:

    Han Solo can wear whatever the hell he wants.

  19. Ron says:

    ok..so we are now saying that 68 year old men should not be wearing dad jeans. Just what we need to go with the earring, the 68 year old man in jersey shore guido jeans. When you are a senior citizen you should be wearing dad jeans and loving how comfortable they are in the crotch!

  20. Mentok the Mind Taker says:

    I didn’t know it was humanly possible to be alive and not see Star Wars.

    And more importantly, why would one want to go through life Not seeing Star Wars? What’s wrong with that girl?

    Despite my dismay over the whole Star Wars thing, I’m truly happy for them. They seem like a real couple. Celebrity or not, that seems to be a rarity these days.

  21. Sincerity says:

    Congratulations to the both of them! It was their wedding and they had the right to wear whatever they wanted as long as they respected the governor’s wishes. It’s always refreshing when people chose to take that gamble by making their commitment legal. After all of the sex and divorce scandals, it’s nice to know that some people still consider marriage a “viable” institution.

  22. Nibbi says:

    K i’m a New Mexican too and frankly I can totally see a jeans and sundress kinda wedding taking place in the governor’s mansion. i bet it was really relaxed and happy. people really are relaxed in NM and i can even see it as sort of sweet- genuine, real. and yeah i wouldn’t be caught dead in wranglers, but they are indeed “real cowboy” jeans (maybe he learned this while making his movie?) i actually give him props for that and also for looking good in them.
    seriously, the view, the sunshine… crap, now I’m homesick.

  23. Maritza says:

    That shows how much he cared about getting married, he couldn’t even bother to wear something more appropriate. Harrison probably told Calixta, if I got to get all dressed up then I won’t get married!

  24. hzl says:

    I saw the first picture and thought, “Daaaamn….he’s still pretty dreamy looking!” But in the second picture, not so much.

  25. Liana says:

    Good for them. I hope they DO make it for the long haul.

  26. Raven says:

    Remember, weddings are a chick thing. So if Calista didn’t care, neither should Ford about jeans.

    And she probably didn’t.

  27. New Mexican born and raised says:

    Jeans and a sundress are totally appropriate in NM.

  28. LindaR says:

    All he needs now are tons of keys on a big ring attached to a belt loop to complete that “I’m a janitor” look.

  29. snapnhiss says:

    He’s still got a pretty nice body, I’d give him a second look even if he wasn’t famous.

  30. Mrs. Harrison Ford says:

    biteme- I hope he made her sign a prenup too! I dislike the skinny thing, but that’s because she married my man.
