Associated Press

In a long, white dress with a 5-foot train, actress Brooke Shields married tennis star Andre Agassi in a weekend ceremony in this scenic coastal city.

About 100 guests were on hand for the wedding at St. John's Episcopal Chapel, the Rev. Jerome Politzer told the Monterey County Herald.

The couple exchanged vows at 6:45 p.m. Saturday in front of the Rev. Charles Gard, pastor of Holy Family Catholic Church in Glendale and a longtime family friend of Shields.

The two celebrities were reportedly introduced at a tennis match in 1993 and kept in touch by fax until their first date.

While four helicopters filled with paparazzi hovered outside, a string ensemble and the San Francisco Boys Choir performed at the ceremony.
