Alyssa Milano & David Bugliari

Tewksbury, N.J. "Married life is awesome!" Alyssa Milano told reporters two months after marrying CAA agent David Bugliari, 31, in an outdoor ceremony at his parents' New Jersey estate. The bride, 37, glided down the aisle in a custom-made Vera Wang gown to John Lennon's "Imagine"—fitting, considering the couple's love of The Beatles: Rock Band. In fact, all the day's details were deeply personal—from a reading by Bugliari's friend Bradley Cooper to the family-style meal of orzo salad with beets (Milano is a vegetarian). "We wanted a wedding that was reflective of who we are as a couple," Milano says. But despite all the lovely details, she adds, "I was most excited about saying my vows."

"I can't live if I don't have 10,000 things to do," the actress, 34, joked of overseeing all the details. Their 100 guests, including Patrick Dempsey, dug the homegrown vibe—but none more than the flower girl: the couple's daughter Ever, 2. "If my child is happy, I'm happy," Jovovich says. "Anything else that happens is a cherry on top of my blessed life."

The actress, best known as the sassy receptionist on TV's The Practice, walked down the aisle in a strapless Amsale gown to "Marla's Wedding Theme"—written for her by Puro. After sharing a three-course Italian meal with 113 guests including Sarah Chalke and groomsman Jake Paltrow, the duo danced to Fleetwood Mac's "Silver Springs"—recorded by Sokoloff (she is a singer-songwriter on the side). "They're very supportive of each other's creative endeavors," says wedding planner Robyn Goldberg. "And at the end of the night, the waiters serenaded them!"
