Despite tying the knot before only a few friends at Little Church of the West in Las Vegas, Jodie Sweetin says her marriage to Cody Herpin "wasn't a quickie wedding."

"We wanted to keep it quiet," the former Full House star tells PEOPLE. "We came to Vegas to get married. We had a bunch of friends come down after we got married to celebrate with us."

Sweetin, 25, who met Herpin, a 30-year-old set designer, through mutual friends, says they first began to discuss marriage back in May.

"[We] have been friends for a really long time and became really serious around Memorial Day and started talking about getting married," says Sweetin, who most recently hosted Fuse's Pants-Off Dance-Off.

She considers the Vegas wedding simply a first step. "In a year or so we're going to have bigger ceremony for family and friends," she says. "We don't know where yet."

But one thing is for sure, says the actress, who split from her first husband, a police officer, last year: "Cody is my best friend. I married my best friend, and I couldn't ask for anything more. He's an unbelievable person."

The couple did not have a formal honeymoon, but they did spend several days in Sin City as a celebration of their nuptials. "We didn't do anything too excessive," says Sweetin. "We ate at [the Bellagio Hotel's restaurant] Fix a few times, and that was fantastic."
