If Milla Jovovich was experiencing any wedding jitters on Aug. 22, she certainly didn’t show it. During a sunset ceremony in the backyard of her and director Paul W.S. Anderson’s Beverly Hills home, the actress seemed absolutely giddy as she recited her vows before “kissing him a million times,” a source says of the bride, who wore a gown by Temperley London and carried a bouquet of white roses and orchids. “She looked stunning and very happy.”

The newlyweds then joined their 100 guests, including their 21-month-old daughter Ever, for a party that lasted until midnight. Planner Julia Obst and event designer Tony Schubert of Event Eleven transformed the couple’s backyard with long tables decorated with white garden roses, hundreds of candles and floating fire pits in the pool for a Spanish-style reception complete with Cuban musicians.

If the couple, who met in 2002 when Anderson, 44, directed Jovovich, 33, in the movie Resident Evil, have their wish come true, there will be more celebrations to come. “I definitely want more kids!” Jovovich told PEOPLE earlier this year. “I don’t know what the future holds, but—knock on wood—I hope it’ll bring me a big family.”
