After dating for four years, this beautiful couple said ‘I do’ in Punta Mita, Mexico! Read on for all the details!
Mario Lopez and Broadway dancer Courtney Mazza tied the knot in an extravagant ceremony on Saturday Dec. 1! Mario, 39, and Courtney celebrated their nuptials at close pal Joe Francis’ gorgeous Casa Aramara villa in Punta Mita, Mexico, surrounded by family and friends!
Mario and Courtney kicked off their weekend with a pre-wedding party on Nov. 30. “The theme was a ‘white party’ with everyone being asked to dress in casual, white beach attire,” a source told In Touch. “There were cocktails, a taco bar with beef, chicken and seafood tacos, a fresh fruit bar and a Tequila bar — with Tequila from all over Mexico. A mariachi band and DJ supplied the music as bonfires burned on the beach.”
The happy couple exchanged vows in front of a Catholic priest at 5PM ET.
“Mario and Courtney wanted to say their vows before sunset so everyone could start partying as the sun went down,” another source told the magazine. “There will be nighttime fireworks on the beach [after the ceremony]!”
The 150-200 guests, including bridesmaid Eva Longoria, dined on everything from fish and chicken to vegetable lasagna and other pasta dishes. The cake is a mixture of both Mario and Courtney’s tastes! “Courtney wanted a chocolate cake and he longed for red velvet layers, but the two finally agreed on alternating layers of chocolate and red velvet, with a creamy vanilla frosting.”
The couple’s 2-year-old daughter Gia serves as the flower girl.
Unfortunately, a honeymoon will be put on hold. ”Mario is too busy working so they are planning for one sometime down the line, but it’s not planned yet,” the source concludes.
And don’t feel jealous that you weren’t invited — the ceremony will air on TV in a two-hour wedding special, Mario & Courtney’s Wedding Fiesta, on Dec. 8 at 8 PM ET on TLC!
Congratulations to Mario and Courtney!
