Eva Longoria says she kept her cool at her wedding to Tony Parker.

“My stylist, Robert Verdi, and everybody around me was like: ’You’re so calm’,” Longoria tells OK! Magazine in its latest issue, on news-stands in the US tomorrow. “I actually don’t stress about anything.”

The 32-year-old Desperate Housewives actress and the 25-year-old NBA star wed in a civil ceremony in Paris last Friday. The following day, they exchanged vows in a church across from the Louvre Museum and held an exclusive reception at a French chateau.

“Every girl dreams of having a beautiful, romantic wedding,” says Longoria. “It was amazing to see it unfold after months of planning. We really wanted to create an experience for our guests. It was about them having fun.”

That list included fellow “Housewives” Teri Hatcher and Felicity Huffman and singer Sheryl Crow.

Parker, who was born in Belgium and raised in France, said Longoria chose the wedding destination.

“I didn’t want to do it in Paris because we’d end up inviting more people than I wanted,” says Parker, eliciting laughs from Longoria.

Longoria also giggled during the wedding ceremony as she attempted to say her vows in French.

“She decided I would do the vows in English; hers would be in French,” Parker says. “There were some tough words. I’m very proud of her.”

Longoria and Parker are featured on the cover and inside pages of the magazine, which paid for its exclusive interviews. An OK! representative would not disclose the terms of its deal with the couple.
