Reps for Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell went running Friday (07-13-2007, RRF) when we asked about the couple's strongly rumored wedding. At the end of the week, we were hearing from more than one source that Malibu nuptials would be taking place.
But three inquiries each to their separate spokespeople — one in Los Angeles, the other in New York — went unanswered.
We didn't even get the usual fig-leaf response, which is, "We don't comment on the personal lives of our clients."
One source said the couple had made exclusive arrangements with People and In Style to cover the ceremonies, and that other media outlets were being kept in the dark. They didn't want the place swarming with paparazzi," says the snitch.

E! Online: Rebecca Romijn marries Jerry O'Connell
With the mercury pushing 100, one can forgive Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell if they sweated out their vows Saturday (07-14-2007, RRF). The camera-ready couple wed in an "intimate ceremony" at the Ugly Betty star's ranch outside Los Angeles, her publicist Lewis Kay tells People.
About 100 guests braved the boiling temperatures to see the erstwhile X-Man shape-shifter and her beau exchange "I do's" under a tree. The wedding party included O'Connell's actor-brother, Charlie, as well as the couple's two dogs, according to Us Weekly.
The groom wore a tan suit, while Romijn was sheathed in a white floor-length Ralph Lauren gown and bejeweled in Neil Lane's finest. The newlyweds were serenaded by a gospel choir, per Us Weekly, and the reception featured a western theme, complete with barbecue, real wagon wheels and hay bales.
This is the second matrimonial go-round for Romijn, who was married to John Stamos for six years. O'Connell, registered his first trip down the aisle, although he was previously engaged to E! News anchor Giuliana DePandi. Romijn, 34, and O'Connell, 33, first met on the Vancouver set of the Ben Affleck romantic comedy Man About Town in April 2004, just after Romijn's split from Stamos. But they didn't begin dating until that fall, after running into each other at a party in Las Vegas.
She finalized her divorce from the former Full House star in March 2005; six months later, she and O'Connell were engaged. "We couldn't be happier and are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives," the obligatorily giddy couple announced at the time.

Us Magazine: Rebecca Romijn marries Jerry O'Connell
Ugly Betty star Rebecca Romijn and her fiancé, Crossing Jordan star Jerry O'Connell have tied the knot -- cowboy style. A representative for Romijn confirmed the marriage took place at 6 PM ET on Saturday.
The casual, western-themed affair took place at the couple's ranch in the L.A. suburb of Calabasas. Prior to the evening ceremony, guests were treated to a lemonade bar and appetizers created by Savore Cuisine.
Romijn and O'Connell exchanged vows in 100 degree heat in front of approximately 100 guests. The groom wore a khaki suit and entered with his brother, actor Charlie O'Connell. They were soon followed by the couple's two dogs and a gospel choir singing Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is."
The bride followed after her own maid of honor and completed her grand entrance in a white floor-length gown with a plunging neckline, her hair partially down, carrying a bouquet of white flowers. Romijn and O'Connell exchanged vows under a big tree adorned with large white flowers. A female officiant conducted the ceremony. The relatively brief ceremony ended 15 minutes later with a kiss and cheers from the wedding guests. The couple skipped down the aisle as the gospel choir serenaded them with Milk and Sugar's "Sunshine."
Their wedding guests later enjoyed a barbecue reception complete with brown picnic tables, wagon wheels, colorful hay bale seats and a large dance floor that was placed over the couple's pool.

People: Inside Their Summer Wedding
The first of many playful moments at Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell's July 14, 2007 nuptials came during the ceremony: As friends and family watched the two exchange vows outside their Calabasas, California home, their dog Better, dressed in a bow tie, moseyed up to his mistress. "He tried to jump into the ceremony!" says a guest. "Rebecca started giggling, and we all laughed as he ran off."
No stiff formality for this pair. The Ugly Betty star and her groom, whose ABC sticom Carpoolers begins airing on Tuesday nights this fall, made their invitations by phone (helping their plans stay under wraps), and chose hay bales to seat their 100 guests, among them Romijn's costars. "It was relaxed, casual and organic - very homespun," says Vanessa Williams.
A gospel choir sang Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is" as Romijn, 34, wearing a Ralph Lauren dress and Neil Lane jewelry, approaced O'Connell, 33. Their vows were short and sweet - and then the celebrating began. Perrier Jouët champagne flowed as guests dined at picnic tables and waved sparklers. O'Connell serenaded his bride with Williams's hit "Save the Best for Last" - before Williams stepped in, belting out the final verse herself. Undeterred, the groom "did the same with a Fergie song," says Ana Ortiz. But Fergie, who was on hand, "was like, 'I'll sing it!'" Ortiz continues. "We got a little private concert."
Dancing under the stars to tunes spun by DJ Dave Meek continued until past midnight, and there were flip-flops on hand for tired feet. "It was lovely," says America Ferrari. "The most fun ever," declared Ortiz. Says Romijn: "It was the perfect celebration. Jerry and I couldn't be happier."

Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell's newly-wedded bliss has been dealt a tragic blow - the dog they rescued from an animal shelter has died. The couple was forced to put their German Shepherd, Bigger, down just days after adopting him once they discovered the dog had a deadly stomach disorder that prevented him from digesting food properly. A source tells the Globe, "They're devastated."

Jerry O'Connell's Not a Gold Digger
There's something rather endearing about newlyweds Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn —they just seem so normal and in love. But surely there's some dirt to dig up? Not to fear, Ryan Seacrest is on the case. Jerry phoned in to Ryan's KIIS-FM show this morning to plug his new show Carpoolers, but decided to harass Ryan about marriage instead. We all know this is a touchy subject for the single guy, so Ryan quickly turned it around and asked Jerry if there was a prenuptial agreement between Jerry and Rebecca.
After much hesitation, Jerry fessed up: "Uh…yes, there was a prenuptial agreement…Rebecca's the one with all the money. It's like ironclad for Rebecca. What am I going to give her, my bicycle? Rebecca's going to get my bicycle, my acid-wash jeans and my Stand By Me video, it's not even a DVD."
