Rebecca Romijn marries Jerry O'Connell
With the mercury pushing 100, one can forgive Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell if they sweated out their vows Saturday (07-14-2007, RRF). The camera-ready couple wed in an "intimate ceremony" at the Ugly Betty star's ranch outside Los Angeles, her publicist Lewis Kay tells People.
About 100 guests braved the boiling temperatures to see the erstwhile X-Man shape-shifter and her beau exchange "I do's" under a tree. The wedding party included O'Connell's actor-brother, Charlie, as well as the couple's two dogs, according to Us Weekly.
The groom wore a tan suit, while Romijn was sheathed in a white floor-length Ralph Lauren gown and bejeweled in Neil Lane's finest. The newlyweds were serenaded by a gospel choir, per Us Weekly, and the reception featured a western theme, complete with barbecue, real wagon wheels and hay bales.
This is the second matrimonial go-round for Romijn, who was married to John Stamos for six years. O'Connell, registered his first trip down the aisle, although he was previously engaged to E! News anchor Giuliana DePandi. Romijn, 34, and O'Connell, 33, first met on the Vancouver set of the Ben Affleck romantic comedy Man About Town in April 2004, just after Romijn's split from Stamos. But they didn't begin dating until that fall, after running into each other at a party in Las Vegas.
She finalized her divorce from the former Full House star in March 2005; six months later, she and O'Connell were engaged. "We couldn't be happier and are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives," the obligatorily giddy couple announced at the time.
