MIAMI, Fla. -- Newlyweds Eva Longoria & Tony Parker have set off for their honeymoon already, PEOPLE reports.
The pair was spotted yesterday as they touched down at Miami International Airport, where they boarded a private plane to whisk them away to an undisclosed honeymoon destination.
The honeymoon is the final phase of the couple’s wedding extravaganza, which began on Friday with a civil ceremony in Paris.
The following day was the main event — a private religious ceremony at Paris’ Saint-Germain-l’Auxerrois Church.
The church is famous for being used by French Royalty over the years, and it housed some Hollywood royalty on Saturday when Eva and Tony’s famous friends attended the nuptials.
Eva’s “Desperate Housewives” co-stars Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Nicollette Sheridan and Brenda Strong were there, along with Jessica Alba, Sheryl Crow, Ryan Seacrest, Mario Lopez and Huffman’s husband, William H. Macy.
The beautiful bride wore a silk wool and silk gazar scoop-back mermaid gown embroidered with silver metallic. The gown, which was reportedly off-white and had a 10-foot-long train, was designed by Angel Sanchez. Sanchez also designed the gown worn by Sandra Bullock for her 2005 wedding to Jesse James.
French menswear label De Fursac, which Parker models for, provided the groom’s suit.
Eva and Tony wore Piaget Possession wedding rings. Longoria’s ringband 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 — 107 jewels in all!
Parker’s ring was 18K white gold as well, but was not decorated with stones. Special inscriptions, written in French, were etched into the inside of the rings.
As a gift of gratitude, each female guest received a Van Cleef & Arpels Sweet Alhambra bracelet. Based on the fabled French jewelers iconic Alhambra design, the bracelets are crafted in 18K yellow gold on a delicate chain with a miniature mother-of-pearl clover charm.
“Sweet Alhambra is sure to bring good luck to those who wear it,” a rep for Van Cleef said in a statement to Access Hollywood.
In keeping with the French theme, guests got relief from the hot summer heat with Evians Brumisateur spray. Bottles personalized for the occasion read, “Eva & Tony” and “Evian Wishes You a Fresh Wedding.”
Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests traveled 34 miles to the exquisite 17th-century Vaux-le-Vicomte chateau, known for its marble-floored ballroom, chandelier-studded dining room and precisely pruned gardens.
To make the fairy tale wedding day complete, fireworks reportedly burst in the sky as the lavish reception carried on into the night.
