Former BAYWATCH star Gena Lee Nolin wed her hockey-playing beau CALE HULSE on 3 September (04) - and she handed out gift cards to coffee chain STARBUCKS to mark the occasion.

Nolin met the 30-year-old PHOENIX COYOTES hunk last year (03), after a pal suggested they go on a blind date. When the actress decided she didn't want to "waste" time on a dinner date, she suggested they meet at Starbucks for coffee instead.

She admits that three hours later, "I knew I was going to dinner with this guy tomorrow."

So on her wedding day, 32-year-old Nolin gave Starbucks gift cards to 110 guests at her Phoenix, Arizona, wedding - where she was walked down the aisle by her seven-year-old son SPENCER.

Nolin adds, "I couldn't wait to hear, "You're man and wife.'"
