ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) _ Andie MacDowell married high-school classmate Rhett DeCamp Hartzog in a private ceremony attended by family and friends.
The hour-long, evening wedding took place last Saturday at Central United Methodist Church, followed by a reception at Biltmore Forest Country Club. More than 200 people attended.
``It was just real sweet and simple,'' said MacDowell's sister, Babs Rogers Richard, who lives in Waxhaw.
MacDowell's 15-year-old son, Justin, who had torn a ligament in his leg the night before while playing basketball, gave her away. He walked down the aisle on crutches.
``Both her daughters (Sarah Margaret and Rainey), the nieces and nephews were involved in the wedding,'' Richard said.
MacDowell, 43, wore a strapless, satiny oyster-white Vera Wang gown. Her hair was accented with shiny antique hair clips.
MacDowell graduated from Gaffney High School in South Carolina in 1976; Hartzog graduated in 1977. Their romance began more than a year ago.
The couple are expected to make their home in Biltmore Forest.
MacDowell's films include ``Four Weddings and a Funeral.''
