Eva Longoria and Tony Parker were married at a small civil ceremony (which is required by French law) at Paris's city hall on Friday, but they are still having a big church wedding and reception tomorrow.
' "They are married. They were married here by the Mayor of Paris, Monsieur Bertrand Delanoë," a spokesperson for the 4th Arrondisement district confirmed to PEOPLE.
The bride's guests arrived in a Hummer with California plates around 2:45 p.m. Exactly four minutes later, Longoria stepped out of one of the other limos wearing a rose Empire-waist mini dress. She waved to cheering fans on her way into the building. The groom appeared just before 3, greeting officials amid a chorus of cheers and calls of "To-nee!"
With the civil service complete, the newlyweds will cement their union with a ceremony at the Church of Saint Germain l'Auxerriois on Saturday.
Invited guests – about 250 of them – include Desperate Housewives pals Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Nicollette Sheridan, James Denton, Ricardo Chavira and the show's creator Marc Cherry (Marcia Cross sent her regrets because she couldn't leave her twin babies).
Also expected are Parker's San Antonio Spurs teammates, coaches and friends, as well as Michael Douglas and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and Jessica Alba and boyfriend Cash Warren.
Longoria and Parker got engaged in November and immediately made plans to have what her rep called a "big, happy ceremony with lots of family and friends" in Parker's native France.
Saturday's guests can look forward to a lavish reception at the Chateau of Vaux le Vicomte just outside Paris, where "the big color theme is red," says a source. "It's going to be a fairy-tale wedding."
Friday's ceremony capped off a week of partying, shopping and socializing, including a his-and-her bachelor party in St. Tropez. The newlyweds have been staying in an $11,000-a-night suite at the Park Hyatt Paris Vendome hotel.
"Paris is such a romantic city," says a source close to the couple. "They are so excited to get married there." '
Congrats? Can I say that yet? I'm so confused.

I still don't understand how it's possible, but Nicole Richie is pregnant with Joel Madden's child! Multiple sources (not including Nicole) have confirmed to US Weekly that she is 12 weeks into her pregnancy. I predict it will be a boy. I also predict the child will weigh .5 lbs and will be wearing eyeliner.
Say it ain't so!! Pete Doherty and Kate Moss are over! There are even rumors that Kate has hired security guards to keep him away after kicking him out of her house and to the curb (which coincidentally, is his old home) after he was caught slipping his diseased,um, peter, in another woman.
Removal men were spotted at Kate's house taking his piano, guitars, and needles away.
No point, you're gonna have to just drain it.
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July and that you listened to the advice of the reformed and newly wise Paris Hilton who posted on her MySpace:
"Happy 4th of July everyone, and remember to be responsible and have a designated driver!"
Paris even set a wonderful example by having three designated drivers. In fact, she had a few non-designated drivers as well. And a couple doormen. And the guy that delivered the beer. And another Greek Shipping heir.
Hope everyone had as much fun and enjoyed as many hot dogs as Paris did this Independence Day!
Congrats to Christina Aguilera and husband Jordan Bratman!! E! has confirmed that the two are expecting their first child together! There hasn't been any further information as to when the little Brat is due.
