But who served the office best? Our faves are:

We know the groom wore Wrangler jeans and bride Calista Flockhart donned a simple white sundress when she tied the knot with Harrison Ford on June 15 at a no-frills outdoor ceremony on the grounds of New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson's hilltop mansion.
Still, there's one traditional – and sparkling – item that the bride is sporting: her new wedding ring. Flockhart was spotted happily wearing it this week in London, where she and son Liam, 9, went to see the action-packed dance show Stomp in the West End – and also dined at the Ivy.
And where was the handsome new groom? He's still in the Land of Enchantment – New Mexico's nickname – shooting the action-fantasy Cowboys & Aliens.

Who needs an Armani tux? When Harrison Ford married longtime girlfriend Calista Flockhart on June 15, the movie star opted to tie the knot in more offbeat designer duds: Wrangler jeans.
Completing the laid-back approach to their surprise Santa Fe, New Mexico, nuptials, Flockhart donned a casual white sundress for the outdoor ceremony on the grounds of Gov. Bill Richardson's hilltop mansion.
Flockhart's son, Liam, 9, served as ring bearer as the couple exchanged bands and simple vows. Looking on were Gov. Richardson, who performed the simple ceremony; his wife, Barbara; the governor's official counsel; and New Mexico's chief justice, Charles W. Daniels, who officially pronounced Ford, 67, and Flockhart, 45, husband and wife.

For newlyweds Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart, the honeymoon will have to wait.
After marrying in New Mexico on June 15, the couple stayed put so Ford could resume work on his upcoming film Cowboys and Aliens.
"It's business as usual as far as I can tell," a source tells PEOPLE, adding that there have been no congratulatory cakes or speeches for the couple. "A lot of people still don't even know about [the wedding] on the set out here."
The source notes that the location – a small town outside of Santa Fe – isn't exactly a romantic hot spot.

After more than eight years together, Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart have tied the knot, their reps confirm to PEOPLE.
Ford surprised Flockhart with a Valentine's Day wedding proposal in 2009. They were married Tuesday in New Mexico, where the actor is filming Cowboys and Aliens.

Gov. Richardson and his wife, Barbara, who are friends of the couple, were witnesses for the bride and groom. The couple's son Liam, 9, was also in attendance, as was the governor's official counsel.
The mansion sits atop a hill north of downtown Santa Fe.

Dust off the fedora and clear out the snakes – Indiana Jones is ready to ride again.
Harrison Ford, 67, says he's already ready for the globe-trotting archaeologist's next adventure, only a year after one of history's most successful film franchises was revived – and that the next chapter is already well on its way.
"The story for the new Indiana Jones is in the process of taking form," Ford told France's Le Figaro. "Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and myself are agreed on what the fifth adventure will concern, and George is actively at work. If the script is good, I'll be very happy to put the costume on again."
