The "Charmed" alum married artist Davey Detail in Los Angeles on Saturday, her rep told People, in a "romantic and ethereal" ceremony on the lawn of the Paramour Mansion.

The A-line silk confection was draped with Chantilly lace and tulle. She also wore a chapel-length tulle veil and Jimmy Choo shoes.

The Internet is a treasure trove of Catherine O'Hara's golden comedic moments, from her uncanny impression of an elderly Katharine Hepburn talking about her "first time" on an episode of the Emmy Award-winning sketch comedy series "SCTV" to the wacky, eccentric characters she's embodied in Christopher Guest's comedies, such as a travel agent who has never been on a trip in 1996's "Waiting for Guffman. " And then there are a few not-so-golden moments - such as a campy Dristan commercial from the late 1970s that features a very young O'Hara suffering from a bad cold until her older sister gives her a bottle of the sponsor's congestion-relief tablets.

It looked on paper, with a few small exceptions, like an ordinary season-opening gala, the kind every major U.S. orchestra seems to practice these days - a jumble of Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Saint- Saëns favorites. The superstar soloist was Yo-Yo Ma, who flew in after having been guest last week for the New York Philharmonic's season-opening gala. Music director Gustavo Dudamel had jetted in himself practically at the last minute from performing in Japan. But Walt Disney Concert Hall is not paper.

Starting next month, Disney theme parks will change the policy that lets visitors with disabilities skip the long lines for attractions. Instead of giving visitors with disabilities and their family members a card that allows them to go directly onto rides, the guests will be given a scheduled time period to return to get faster access to the attraction. In essence, guests with disabilities and their families will get to use a new version of the Fastpass tickets offered for certain rides to all guests.

VACAVILLE, Calif. - A few months ago, I found out that my life was about to get louder. Seeing the word "pregnant" appear on a stick can quickly change how you look at - and hear - things. With quiet and solitude about to become rare commodities, it seemed like a good time to head to Silent Stay, a monastic retreat atop a Vacaville hill about 30 miles east of Napa. The idea, basically, is to shut up while you center yourself. The concept intrigued me, so I booked the three-night minimum stay.

But Hollywood's own AFI Fest was able to land a highly anticipated, still-under-wraps title to help kick off its November event: "Foxcatcher," director Bennett Miller's wrestling drama. The film, which stars Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, will play on Nov. 8, the second day of the eight-day festival.
