NEW YORK (AP) _ Star Jones, co-host of ABC's ``The View,'' married banker Al Reynolds in a star-studded Park Avenue bash. Notables ranging from Spike Lee to Sen. Hillary Clinton packed into St. Bartholomew's Church Saturday to watch Jones, 42, who wore a a designer strapless wedding dress with a 27-foot train, exchange vows with Reynolds.

``The train was so long it took about seven people to carry it,'' said friend and guest Valerie Simpson, songwriter and half of the R&B duo Ashford and Simpson.

With songstress Patti LaBelle performing, and a bridal party including Natalie Cole, Vivica A. Fox and Holly Robinson Peete, the storybook wedding lasted until 8 p.m. before moving to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel for an equally celebrity-heavy reception.

``I smiled a lot,'' said Jones' ``The View'' co-host Barbara Walters. ``I was happy for her. She had the biggest smile I've ever seen.''
