Reese Witherspoon marries Jim Toth Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth were married Saturday at the actress' ranch estate in Ojai after a three-month engagement and yearlong courtship before that.

The couple tied the knot in a ceremony that ran less than a half hour, according to various reports, in front of about 100 friends at the 7-acre ranch. Toth, an agent with CAA, began seeing Witherspoon shortly after her split with Jake Gyllenhaal. Toth, 40, was seated with Reese's parents in December when the 35-year-old Oscar winner got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Ava, 11, and Deacon, 7, Witherspoon's children with first husband Ryan Phillippe, were in the wedding party, E! News reported, and the bride wore a gown by Monique Lhuillier.

Among the guests: Renee Zellweger, Tobey Maguire, Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan, and Alyssa Milano and her CAA agent husband, David Bugliari. Recently rumored couple Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson attended together, People said.

Phillippe spent the weekend at the Ojai-close San Ysidro Inn with Amanda Seyfried, Radar Online said Saturday, though E! News reported he did not attend the ceremony. Reese and Ryan married in 1999; they split in 2006, with the divorce finalized in 2008.

Witherspoon was spotting running errands Friday in West Hollywood, where law enforcement gave her an assist in avoiding paparazzi, E! News reported. A rehearsal dinner was planned for Friday night, according to RadarOnline, and many guests were expected to check into the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, where rooms start at $300 a night, suites run $850 to $1,500 and the five-bedroom Casa Elar can be had for $15,000.

Witherspoon's country house in Ojai was designed by Wallace Neff, according to Hooked on Homes. Toth put a four-carat diamond ring on her finger for their engagement.

Witherspoon stars next in "Water for Elephants" with Robert Pattinson. The film opens April 22.
