Mariah Carey: Married Life Is 'Fantastic'

The honeymoon may be over for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon – but the two are obviously still basking in newlywedded bliss.

Cannon was hard at work Thursday night, playing DJ at an Operation Smile fund-raising event in New York City. And his new bride – wearing five-inch heels and a fitted Ralph Lauren dress – was there to show her support.

So, two weeks after their surprise island nuptials, how is married life going? "Fantastic," Carey told PEOPLE. Later, she added, "It's a stone smash!"

(Carey is an ambassador for Operation Smile, which provides surgery to children with cleft palates and other facial deformities.)

Cannon also took time out from spinning to sing his wife's praises.

"It's a beautiful thing," the Wild N' Out star told PEOPLE of their marriage. "It's a beautiful situation ... carrying on and on each day."

So has he learned any of Carey's quirks since they've started living together?

"I've been doing my research for quite a while," said Cannon (who recently surprised Carey by renting out Six Flags Magic Mountain for a late-night bash). They dated for less than two months, but, he added, "we've been friends for a while."

Once Cannon's deejay duties were over, he made a beeline for Carey in the VIP room. They immediately put their arms around each other and began whispering. Before long, the two slipped outside into a waiting SUV.
