Former BEVERLY HILLS 90210 star Rebecca Gayheart and her husband Eric Dane were so spontaneous in their decision to marry, they asked a taxi driver to be their best man.

The couple stunned fans and family members alike when they suddenly walked down the aisle in October (04), and Gayheart admits that she and her beau had no idea they were going to wed until the night of the occasion arrived.

She says, "My husband and I went to dinner and we both felt very compelled at dinner to get married. So we went directly to the airport, we flew to Vegas and we got into a taxi. Our taxi driver SAM ended up being our best man!

"It was not a very fancy chapel. It was less than luxurious, but it was the only one open... It was actually just very, very sweet, because it was just the two of us and it was something that we wanted to do.

"Our families are slightly upset. We're gonna do like a wedding reception at our one-year (anniversary)."
