This was a wedding that would have started tongues wagging on Wisteria Lane. Desperate Housewives' Eva Longoria and NBA star Tony Parker capped off two separate civil and religious ceremonies over the weekend with a star-studded bash at a 17th-century château outside Paris.

On Friday afternoon Longoria, 32, and Parker, 25, exchanged vows in a civil ceremony, a requirement under French law. Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoë, who officiated at the intimate city hall service before fewer than 30 friends and family members, doesn't normally do weddings. "Their celebrity cannot escape me," he said on French television. "But for me they're just Eva and Tony, two young people who love each other."

They may be just another couple in love, but their nuptials were anything but ordinary. Over 200 guests - including Ryan Seacrest, Jessica Alba, Sheryl Crow, Phoenix Suns player Boris Diaw, and Dancing with the Stars' Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff - assembled at the 12th-century Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois on July 7 for an hour-long Roman Catholic ceremony.

Following the church service, guests traveled 40 miles south of Paris to the 17th-century Château Vaux le Vicomte, where 70 acres of planted gardens were aglitter with over 4,000 candles. After music, dancing and toasts in the gardens, and a party whose estimated cost well exceeded half a million dollars, the red-themed evening concluded with a fireworks display around midnight.

The Desperate Housewives gang was out in full force. Nicollette Sheridan, Felicity Huffman and Teri Hatcher (who walked to the church holding hands with her 9-year-old daughter, Emerson Rose) partied the night away. Marcia Cross sent her regrets saying she didn't want to leave her twins so soon after their birth. Longoria and her costars don't have much time to recuperate. They return to Los Angeles on Sunday, and it's back to work this week on Season 4 of Desperate Housewives. - Reporting by Johnn Darwin
