Fireworks lit up the French sky as newlyweds Eva Longoria and Tony Parker partied into the early hours of Sunday at a 17th century castle.
“It was so great – such a fun wedding,” wedding guest Mario Lopez tells PEOPLE. “It’s been one event after another. I’m tired!”
Sparkle of a different kind shimmered at the reception in the Chateau of Vaux le Vicomte on the outskirts of Paris. Scores of diamonds decorated Longoria’s wedding band, the company which made them has revealed.
Longoria, 32, and Parker, 25, wore Piaget Possession wedding rings. The Desperate Housewives star’s band was made from 18K white gold with two rows of 80 brilliant-cut diamonds. These were separated by a row of 27 square-cut diamonds, for a total of 107 jewels.
Parker’s ring matched his wife’s 18K white gold but was not decorated with stones. They each had a special inscription, in French, etched into the inside of the gold ring.
Meanwhile, all the women guests at the wedding were given bracelets from Van Cleef & Arpels’ Sweet Alhambra range. The bracelets are 18K yellow gold on a delicate chain. They each had a miniature mother-of-pearl clover charm and the French jeweler said they are “sure to bring good luck.”
The VIP guests, like Longoria’s co-stars Felicity Huffman and Teri Hatcher, Sheryl Crow, Jessica Alba, Ryan Seacrest and soccer star Thierry Henry, were among around 200 people watching the couple exchange vows at the Church of Saint Germain l’Auxerrois. Longoria wore a couture Angel Sanchez mermaid gown made of silk wool, with silk gazar metallic embroidery, a scoop back and a long train.
The day before, a smaller, more intimate gathering saw them wed in a civil service.
