Both bride, 39, and groom, 36, made their case to 65 close friends and relatives during their June 29 wedding at the Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, Calif. Decked out in an ivory fitted Pamela Dennis Couture gown and Jimmy Choo heels, O'Dell cascaded down a white rose-petal-covered aisle toward her teary groom, who was flanked by his best men, his sons from his first marriage, Tyler, 10, and Carson, 6. At the altar the couple, who first spotted each other in a security line at Burbank's Bob Hope Airport 14 months ago, exchanged vows they wrote themselves. Zubchevich, a technology company executive, pledged, "I'll always let you know that no one else comes before you," while O'Dell joked, "You say you love my cooking, and I think you actually believe it tastes good!" Says O'Dell's sister and maid of honor Karen: "Everyone was crying because we were all so happy for them. Nancy's the happiest I've ever seen her."
At the reception, the couple enjoyed their first dance to Rascal Flatts's "Bless the Broken Road," and their first introduction as Mr. and Mrs. Zubchevich, the name they'll go by—at least until they get back to work after a two-week honeymoon. "When I told my executive producer I was marrying Keith," O'Dell says with a laugh, "he said, 'You will not be changing your name!'"
