'Superman's' Brandon Routh Marries

The Man of Steel now has a ball and chain.

"Superman Returns" star Brandon Routh and his longtime girlfriend, actress Courtney Ford, tied the knot on Saturday, Nov. 24 in Santa Barbara, reports People.

The nuptials took place at the El Capitan Ranch. The bride wore a Junko Yoshioka sheath dress with Chantilly lace and platinum beading, while the groom sported a cashmere suit by Looysen Fine Clothing.

Routh, 28, met Ford, 29, when he was working at Hollywood's hip bowling establishment Lucky Strike. "I was a bartender. And her brother was having his [wedding] rehearsal dinner party there," he said in an earlier interview.

Added Ford: "He met my whole family the day he met me."

The pair became engaged in Glastonbury, England on August 23, 2006.

Routh and Ford both recently wrapped shooting "Lie to Me," a project about a couple's open relationship that begins to crumble as they get enamored with other people.
