After a whirlwind 2013 in which she had a high-profile fling with Superman, met her future husband, got engaged, and got married (all within six months!), Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting has been having a relatively quiet year so far. Until now, that is.

The Big Bang Theory star just landed her first Cosmopolitan cover for its May issue, and the newlywed happily gushes about her husband, tennis pro Ryan Sweeting, and their wedding.

"I admit it happened fast, but that's who I am," she says of her lightning-speed courtship. "When we met, I knew [Ryan] was the one. [At my wedding], I felt like a rock star and a badass."

And though we saw some Instagram photos from their New Year's Eve wedding at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in California, the magic went beyond just her petal pink Vera Wang wedding dress and upside-down chandelier wedding cake. "What was amazing in that room, it was so full of love," she says. "It was like nothing I'd ever been to before, and it was exactly what we wanted it to be. It was the eighth wonder of the world, the greatest wedding of all time."

The actress also opened up about one of her famous exes: Cuoco-Sweeting secretly dated her Big Bang Theory co-star Johnny Galecki for two years before breaking up in 2009. And though there was a "bit of awkwardness" at first, they eventually became "best buddies and moved on in such an elegant way." In fact, they're so close that he was front-and-center at her wedding. "(He's) one of my closest friends," she said. "He was in the front row at my wedding with a huge smile on his face."

Cuoco-Sweeting obviously lives life by her own rules, and in the most fabulous way. We're thrilled that it's led to newlywed bliss.

When you know, you know! Kaley Cuoco may have just gotten married this past New Year's Eve, but the newlywed is opening up now about her rapid romance, quick proposal, and super-speedy wedding to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting. It all happened in a cool six months!

Surprisingly, Cuoco is pretty self aware about how crazy the pair's quick courtship looks from the outside, and shared details about how the two met and fell in love with David Letterman, Us Weekly reports. "It all did move quite fast on paper," she told the Late Show host, "but we really did know...And I know you're all thinking, 'She's nuts!' I swear I'm not nuts. We just fell in love."

As for how they met? "He came to L.A. for a blind date—and he never left," The Big Bang Theory star dished. "We had been texting, we texted a little bit. Dinner was great, and then he moved in the next day. I know, it sounds so slutty, but it wasn't!"

Surprisingly, Cuoco revealed that Sweeting hadn't ever seen her show—and didn't even know who she was—when they met!

And the wedding itself, which happened just three months after the lovestruck pair got engaged, was supposed to be a complete secret—despite a playful nuptials on Ellen and a ton of publicity—some of it from Cuoco herself—leading up to the big day.

"It was supposed to be a secret. The problem was, I could not keep my mouth shut. Like, I'd be getting my nails done, and I'd be like, 'Listen, I'm totally getting married in a few months,'" Cuoco confessed. "And then I'd go get my gas pumped, and I'd be telling the attendant, like, 'I'm getting married in a few months, but you're the only one that knows, so don't tell anyone!'"

We're happy to hear that Cuoco and Sweeting are madly in love, and look forward to learning even more about their sweet whirlwind of a romance.

The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco may have gotten married on New Year's Eve, but the fun isn't over yet. The playful primetime actress's makeup artist, Jamie Greenberg, just released a hilarious video on YouTube (see above) of the comedic blonde prepping for her biggest event yet—her wedding!

Step by step, this behind-the-scenes video takes viewers through each aspect of Cuoco's pretty-in-pink makeup application. From how to moisten her skin so that the makeup stays on all night long, to how to craft the perfect cat eye (apply powder and then go over with liquid cream liner for a super symmetrical finish), no stone is left unturned in this tutorial.

Our favorite parts, though, are all of the little snippets that show off Cuoco's inherent excitement and all-around goofiness throughout the whole beautifying process. In between eye, cheek, and lip-color applications, you can spot stolen moments of she and Greenberg dancing. As Greenberg gives instructions to the camera, Cuoco sips her champagne, makes funny faces, and spews sarcastic comments like how she and brand-new hubby Ryan Sweeting will be kissing for the first time at the wedding ceremony or telling Greenberg in a deadpan tone that, "Makeup school called, you need to go back."

As for the her wedding-day style, this video gives you an up-close-and-personal look at the details like Cuoco's blinged-out manicure (Greenberg adorably points out her bedazzled nails, diamond bracelet, and diamond engagement ring while singing "Ice, Ice, Baby").

The evening wasn't all jokes and games, though. When Cuoco comes out wearing her custom, petal-pink Vera Wang gown she says, "I can't wait to go and get married to Ryan!" while nearly tearing up (so sweet!). "I'm not nervous at all, I've never been less nervous in my whole entire life," Cuoco continues to tell her bridesmaids.

After, you can watch Cuoco run to the ceremony, smile at all her guests, and then screa, and jump up and down after their officiant announces, "You may kiss the bride."

While the celebrity couple may have been criticized for their super-quick courtship, its clear these lovebirds were over-the-moon to marry one another. Congrats again to Kaley and Ryan!

Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco topped off an already-banner 2013 with the biggest celebration of her life: Her wedding to her tennis pro fiancé Ryan Sweeting.

Cuoco and Sweeting tied the knot in a fire-and-ice-themed wedding on New Year's Eve at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Santa Susana, Calif. in front of about 150 guests. In keeping with her playful personality, Cuoco said "I do" in a custom petal pink Vera Wang wedding dress that echoed the rosy tones of Wang's Fall 2014 runway collection. In a press release, Vera Wang described the creation as a strapless tulle ball gown with a sweetheart neckline, hand gathered details on the bodice and hand appliqué Chantilly lace accents. She reportedly changed into a shorter red dress after the romantic wedding ceremony.

Luckily for fans of Cuoco and weddings (of which we are both), she shared numerous photos from her big day on her Instagram account. Along with the sweet and simple "Yep :) #thesweetings" that she captioned the above photo to break the news, she also posted images of them jokingly posing, having their first dance, and looking excited under a totally awesome upside-down chandelier wedding cake—check it out below!

The final wedding-day snapshot was utterly adorable, an image of the newlyweds leaving the reception with the caption, "My fairy-tail ending. Or beginning I should say! Photo cred @claudcraig." We love how her wedding bouquet matches the pale pink color of her dress, but the best part of the picture is their palpable joy!

After getting engaged following a three-month courtship in September, the pair have openly celebrated their whirlwind romance. They let Ellen DeGeneres host a fake wedding on her talk show, hosted rollicking bachelor and bachelorette parties, and shared images from Cuoco's bridal shower.

Cuoco herself admitted that the lightning-speed timing was appropriately unconventional. "I just knew immediately and it's been magic," she told Entertainment Tonight in October. "We have all the same family friends. We grew up with the same people, we just never met. So I kind of feel that I've known him my whole life. I know that it seems a little crazy on paper, but it's what works for us."

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Kaley Cuoco Celebrates Her Bridal Shower With Some Famous Friends

Kaley Cuoco and fiancé Ryan Sweeting wasted no time getting engaged—the tennis star proposed to his Big Bang Theory star girlfriend after just three months of dating—and now, she's speeding through her other pre-wedding festivities just as quickly!

Cuoco hosted a "pre-holiday" bridal shower in Los Angeles this weekend surrounded by some famous gal pals. Guests included former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky (pictured above), Lacey Chabert (also known as Gretchen Weiners from Mean Girls), Big Bang Theory costar Melissa Rauch, and Cuoco's sister Briana, who recently competed on The Voice.

The actress donned the perfect bridal shower dress for the event, too: The frock was a floral, knee-length dress with an adorable white collar and cuffs. Her updo was a nod to movie star Brigitte Bardot, whom Cuoco called out in an Instagram later that day. "Thank you @jamiemakeupgreenberg @clsymonds for bringing my #bardot to life :)," she wrote. Any bride-to-be or bridal shower attendee knows that the dress code can vary from super casual to somewhat dressy, and Cuoco's festive outfit is perfect for something on the more formal end of the spectrum.

Just last weekend, Cuoco celebrated her bachelorette party in Palm Springs with some of the same friends. According to tradition, a bridal shower and bachelorette party are held after a wedding date is chosen. This can only mean one thing—her wedding is just around the corner! Ellen DeGeneres' fake ceremony for Cuoco and Sweeting on her talk show earlier this month was probably even more important of a rehearsal than we thought.

On second thought, it would make sense if their wedding is coming up soon. Cuoco, an animal lover, has shared some specific details, such as her desire for a dog-shaped wedding cake and how she wants to make her ceremony entrance. "I just want everything the way I want it. That's the way it should be. I might ride in on one of my horses. I secretly kind of want to do that," she recently told the Daily Mail.

That, plus her expressed desire to get married "as soon as possible," seals the deal—we've got a big bang wedding in the very near future!

After a whirlwind romance—we're talking three months of dating and a little more than one month engaged—the Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco and tennis pro (slash major hottie) Ryan Sweeting are married. Well, not exactly: Ellen DeGeneres surprised her celeb guest this morning with a hilarious faux shotgun wedding.

During her interview on Ellen this morning, Cuoco couldn't stop gushing about her new beau. She told the talk show host that by day two she knew that "this was it!" The actress even dished to DeGeneres that she was reluctant to meet her man, whom friends urged her to date, but once he came to Los Angeles, he never left. As Cuoco says during her one-on-one with DeGeneres, the two lovebirds are still on their first date (cue collective awww).

Of course, it wouldn't be an Ellen DeGeneres interview without some major surprises, and this one playfully riffed on the pair's unusually quick courtship. With her show's Internet-ordained writer, a secret floral arbor, a tennis ball tiara and tennis ball pearl necklace in tow, DeGeneres rushes Cuoco (who is coincidentally wearing white) into a spontaneous wedding ceremony. She even offers up musical guest, The Wanted, as the wedding reception's entertainment. Watch below as Sweeting nervously questions the marriage's legality and the two laugh their way through the rushed vows:

Married or not, we're really excited to see what dress Cuoco, a perennial red carpet knockout, will wear come the big day. We're waiting with bated breath!

Kaley Cuoco proposal story from Ryan Sweeting

We were certainly surprised to hear that Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco was engaged to Ryan Sweeting after only three months of dating. But the proposal was even more of a shock to her.

Even though Cuoco said she knew "from day one" that she would marry tennis player Sweeting, it didn't seem that way the night he proposed.

"[Ryan] actually started a little fight with me and threw me off," she told Entertainment Tonight on Monday. "I was like 'Oh my God, things aren't great."

Cuoco must have tried to stay calm—until Sweeting brandished an engagement ring.

"He surprised me at the end of the night...[when] he popped the ring out," she said. "It was amazing." It turns out, the fake argument worked and Cuoco was taken completely off-guard.

Cuoco, who is filming her new movie The Wedding Ringer, says their speedy courtship only looks irrational from afar.

"I just knew immediately and it's been magic. We have all the same family friends. We grew up with the same people, we just never met. So I kind of feel that I've known him my whole life. I know that it seems a little crazy on paper, but it's what works for us."

An engagement night like that sounds stressful to us, but we're glad Cuoco is happy! We can't wait to get a good look at her engagement ring and to hear all of the wedding plans.
