Actress Laura Dern (one of my very favorite actresses) and her longtime boyfriend Ben Harper finally tied the knot in a holiday ceremony complete with seasonal decorations, in front of 150 of their family and closest friends. The couple, who have been together for six years, have two children together, son Ellery, 4, and daughter Jaya (cool name), 1.

How is it that people actually know 150 people to invite to their wedding? Maybe I'm just not as social as your average Hollywoodite, but I can't think of 40 people I know personally that I'd want to invite to a dinner party, much less 150 to invite to a wedding. At any rate, here's hoping the six years of togetherness before tying the knot will bode well for Dern and Harper, and that their marriage will outlast most Hollywood couplings.
