The former Desperate Housewives star is still trying to piece together moments from her big day
A “jet-lagged” Longoria walked her first red carpet since saying her “I dos,” attending the opening night screening of her new movie Lowriders at the L.A. Film Festival on Wednesday night just hours after flying home from her honeymoon.
Longoria told reporters how her new husband filled the evening with surprises.
“There were so many memorable moments,” she said. “Then the tequila kind of blurred it all! But [Pepe] surprised me throughout the night – a surprise singer, a surprise video, a surprise this. So every half hour there was another surprise that I was like, ‘I can t handle any more! My heart is going to explode!’ ”
“My cheeks hurt from laughing and smiling so much. It was great,” she added.
“It was actually a really small wedding,” Longoria said. “It looked huge on social media because everyone was posting, but it was actually like 80 people. Super small.”
“She was amazing,” Longoria dished. “I changed in the middle of the night and she changed me. She was a true bridesmaid – unzipped my dress, took it off, put on the next dress. She was like ‘Let’s go!’ That was fun.”
The Desperate Housewives alum and her new husband, 47, have been dating since 2013. Bastén, president of Latin American media brand Televisa, proposed with a ruby engagement ring while on vacation in Dubai in December.
Longoria previously gushed to PEOPLE about first meeting Bastén, saying “He was the most handsome man I’d ever seen. He was so charismatic, charming, sweet and funny. I thought, ‘Who is this guy?!’ ”
This is the third marriage for Longoria, who was previously married to actor Tyler Christopher and NBA star Tony Parker, and the second for Bastén. The Televisa president has three children with his previous wife Natalia – twins Mariana and Jose, 12, and daughter Natalia, 20.
As for whether the newlyweds will be welcoming a new baby anytime soon, Longoria says “we’ll see.”
“We have a family!” she added, speaking of her stepchildren. “Three kids, so we re just continuing with our family we have now and waiting.”
