Howard & Beth
New York City
The first of many kisses at Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky's wedding at Le Cirque restaurant in Manhattan came even before the two said "I do." As comedian Jimmy Kimmel read a poem, teasing Stern for his early bedtime habits and love for the TV show The Bachelor
, the bride and groom "started smooching," says Le Cirque's general manager Elli Jafari, who planned the reception. For a man whose popular morning radio show is unabashedly risqué, Stern, 54, was a sweet and sentimental groom. In his vows he promised to TiVo all their favorite TV shows and called his model bride, 36, the love of his life. Says Jafari: "Every single person was crying."
But the crying didn't last long. After pal Mark Consuelos—who got his officiant's license on the Internet—pronounced them husband and wife, they kissed again. Then it was time to party. The 150 guests—including Donald and Melania Trump, the Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines (who performed a song she wrote for the couple as they walked down the aisle), Chevy Chase (who gave a raunchy toast) and John Stamos (who played drums with the band)—dined on tuna tataki, tortellini and striped bass with caviar. "They wanted to give their friends the best dinner party," says Jafari.
And they delivered: After Billy Joel took the stage to sing his hit "You're My Home," the revelers entered Le Cirque's wine lounge, which was transformed into a disco. With the help of some 200 bottles of wine and seven desserts, the party lasted until 1 a.m. "I never thought it would happen," Joel joked about seeing his buddy Stern get married. But everyone was happy to have witnessed it. Said Joan Rivers: "The wedding was fabulous and everyone had a great, great time."

"It's like we're a family," says Haley Scarnato. And they were ready to welcome Davis into the fold. "I'm happy for her future," Sanjaya Malakar says of Jones, whose 5-year-old daughter Brionne was the flower girl. "I'm happy for her daughter that they can be a family." The bride, who wore an Alfred Angelo gown, was just excited to become Mrs. Davis. "He lets me be me," she says. "After the shows are done, the wigs come off, the eyelashes come off and this is me. And does he still love this girl? He does. Very much."
