Extravagant celebrity weddings make their admirers dream. Back on that of Eva Longoria and Tony Parker.

They had planned everything, and in a grand way. After a festive getaway to Saint-Tropez, where they bury their celibacy, Eva Longoria and Tony Parker say “yes” on July 6, 2007 during a civil ceremony at the town hall of the 4th arrondissement of Paris, an event officiated by the mayor Bertrand Delanoë. Arrived in front of the cameras in a short pink Chanel dress, the star of “Desperate Housewives” will slip for the wedding in a white couture dress from the same house. During this event, only a few dozen guests, family and close friends, are invited.

Photos sold for $ 2 million

The big “show” takes place the next day, Saturday July 7, 2007. It is at the Saint-Germain-l’Auxerrois church, near the Louvre in the 1st arrondissement, that the 32-year-old actress and the 25-year-old basketball player unite religiously. This time, all the Hollywood gratin is present: the colleagues of “Desperate Housewives”, Jessica Alba or even Sheryl Crow are photographed among the guests. Not a single shot of the bride and groom does not filter. Eva Longoria (who this time opts for an Angel Sanchez dress estimated at some $ 75,000) and Tony Parker have planned everything, having negotiated the sale of the photos of their wedding with the magazine “OK!” for $ 2 million – an amount that would have been used in part to finance the party on D-Day.

On Saturday evening, it is at the castle of Vaux-le-Vicomte in Maincy (Seine-et-Marne) that the bride and groom meet for “a great joyful celebration with lots of family members and friends”, announces the agent of Eva Longoria. Some 200 people were present with the couple to feast until the end of the night. “This is the best free advertising that one can dream of”, welcomed two days earlier the president of the Departmental Tourism Committee of Seine-et-Marne Lionel Walker.
