After months of dodging questions about when they're getting married, Ugly Betty's Rebecca Romijn and Carpoolers' Jerry O'Connell faced a whole other set of inquiries at the ABC All-Star Party about how they finally decided what kind of a wedding they wanted.

"We almost went to City Hall a number of times, we almost eloped a number of times. Eventually we just decided we really wanted to have a party with our friends at home," says Romijn about their intimate wedding at their house in Calabasas on July 14.

When asked if guests knew that they were attending a wedding, Romijn laughs, "First I said it was a retirement party for my parents; then we told people it was a special barbecue, and I think most people understood."

Although O'Connell says life as a married man is much the same as before, he admitted to suffering a little bit from post-wedding depression. "I was a little sad after the wedding just because it was over. I wasn't like Brooke Shields sad, but I cleaned up the mess on Monday when Rebecca was at work and I was like, 'I want everybody to come back.'" - Reporting by Carita Rizzo
