Andie’s Sister Helped Them Reunite Years After High School

Years later, the two got reunited with the help of Julia, Andie’s sister. Since they were not complete strangers, it was easy for the both of them to connect. Soon, they fell in love with each other and decided to get married. They met again for the first time after high school in 1999 and they got married in November 2001, two years after their reunion. This was a second marriage for the actress as she had previously been married to Paul Qualley. She also had a long-term relationship with Dennis Quaid after her first divorce.

At the time of their getting married, Hartzog was 45 years old while MacDowell was 46. Their wedding was an elaborate ceremony with about 450 guests. The wedding happened in Asheville, North Carolina, USA. The children of the actress from her first marriage – Justin, Rainey, and Sarah Margaret were all present at the wedding.
