As no-nonsense NYPD Det. Olivia Benson on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, actress Mariska Hargitay rarely gets to crack a smile. But on Aug. 28 Hargitay was all grins at her Santa Barbara, Calif., wedding to actor (and SVU guest star) Peter Hermann. The church nuptials "were enchanting," says wedding planner Yifat Oren. "It was really magical."

After the ceremony, which featured a gospel choir singing "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," the bride, 40, and groom, 37, joined their 200 guests (including 10 nieces and nephews in the wedding party) for a reception at a Montecito estate. A 6-ft.-tall wedding cake topped with a crystal "M&P" provided a sweet finish for the couple. "They're mad about each other," says Oren. "And they're hilariously funny together."
