Jessica Alba‘s last-minute and low-key wedding to long-term boyfriend Cash Warren surprised even the closest of their friends and family. But the newlyweds are planning to have a big white wedding reception to make up for the invitation snub.

The parents-to-be, who are expecting their first child this summer, wed in a quickie ceremony under silk flowers at a Beverly Hills courthouse in front of a judge on May 19, within one hour of applying for a wedding license. The couple, who have been dating since the fall of 2004 when they met on the set of Fantastic Four, are keen to gather the nearest and dearest to mark their happy union.

"Jessica wants to have something special with everyone there," a pal of the duo says." She wanted to do this right. She’s always wanted to be married and have a baby with Cash." The 27-year-old actress, who accepted 31-year-old Cash’s marriage proposal in December 2007, is not planning a conventional honeymoon either.

"She wants to go on a babymoon vacation before she gives birth," Jessica’s pal tells OK!. "She’s looking forward to lounging on a beach somewhere like Cabo. They want to do relaxing couple’s things like get messages- of course hers will be prenatal! She is trying to spend as much along time with Cash as she can!"
