This is the wedding that everybody wanted to see. The 32-year-old Eva Longoria, who is starring in the worldwide TV hit "Desperate Housewives", and the 25-year-old Tony Parker, an MVP NBA champion. A beautiful Mexican-American marrying a Belgian raised in France and playing in the US. These are two people that everybody has heard about, especially in
Naturally, such a wedding had "BIG" written all over it. The two decided to tie the knot in France, not just because Tony was raised there, but because it is so romantic to marry in a French castle. Next, the A-class guest list, including Eva's co-stars Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Nicolette Sheridan and Brenda Strong. Add to that Jessica Alba and boyfriend Cash Warren, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, Victoria Beckham, Sheryl Crow, but also Tony's San Antonio Spurs teammates and French soccer star Thierry Henry.
The two were wed in the Parisian Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois church, which is just around the Louvre. It is this same church that once served the French royal family. The festivity was hidden from the public attention, but some details have been made public. For instance, it seems that Eva wore a couture Angel Sanchez mermaid gown that had a scoop back and a long train. Also, the ceremony was in English and French. Tony said his vows in English (which went smoothly), while Eva said hers in French, which proved a bit tricky, especially when it came to the "for rich and for poor" part. It seems Eva could not properly pronounce "pouvretee".
After the religious ceremony ended, the newly weds and their guests got on several red buses and traveled 20 miles south of Paris to the Chateau Vaux-le-Viconte, where they partied the night away. There are no photos currently available, since the OK magazine alone paid $2 million for the exclusive (they keep on denying that they paid such a large sum of money). It's no wonder why they went on and booked the 17 century castle for two whole days, considering that just one hour costs close to $45,000.
But to fully appreciate the scale of this wedding, which will probably be the biggest of this year, we're waiting for the release of the exclusive pictures from the OK magazine.
