The festivities at the Calistoga Ranch in Napa Valley, Calif., culminated with—what else?—a seven-course feast on Aug. 30 held in the ranch's wine cave. The next day the group gathered to watch the couple's wedding video from Feb. 23, 2002, when Rimes was a 19-year-old bride. "We look back and go, 'Were we crazy or what? We were kids!'" says Sheremet, 27. "But it was definitely the right decision." Adds Rimes: "Every odd in the world was stacked against us. But we've grown together instead of apart."
Naturally, the baby question was a hot party topic. "We talk about it all the time," says Rimes, calling the bash "one last hurrah with our friends." Pal Keith Urban, a new dad himself, also has been weighing in. "He's like, 'When are you gonna start?'" says Rimes. "We're ready, definitely."
