It was a celebrity-filled affair.

Keegan-Michael Key and Hollywood producer and director Elisa Pugliese tied the knot with an intimate ceremony at their New York City home on Saturday. However, their wedding reception, which took place one day later, couldn't have been more different. It was packed with people-including several A-lister celebrities, reports People.

The couple held their black-tie reception at One World Observatory, where stars like former Key & Peele comedian Jordan Peele, Paul Rudd, and Stephen Colbert all turned out to help the newlyweds celebrate. As for the other VIPS? Cobie Smulders, Aasif Mandvi, Erika Christensen, Fred Savage, Taran Killam, Robert Kennedy Jr., and Cheryl Hines were also in attendance. Pugliese donned a strapless purple Pamella Roland dress for the evening (a departure from the short white dress she chose for her ceremony!) and carried orchid floral arrangements by Elan Flowers.

Following passed hors d'oeuvres, a sushi bar, and a stark carving station, attendees were treated to a five-tier light blue wedding cake by Ron Ben Israel. Then the real party kicked off. Key joined the wedding's live entertainment-the New York City band, The Barnstorm-and performed a rendition of "Tennessee Whiskey" for his wife. His buddies Paul Rudd and Taran Killam then took the stage, where they belted out Oasis' "Don't Look Back in Anger" much to the delight of the crowd.

It was a "magical and perfect evening," said Key, but he's simply thrilled to be married to the love of his life. "It's a truly amazing thing when you can find someone who brings happiness and joy to your life," he said. "And more importantly helps you to share that happiness and joy with others. Before I met her, I didn't even know that was possible."
