Mario Lopez is officially off the market. The X Factor judge got married over the weekend to Courtney Mazza in a beautiful ceremony which took place in Punta Mita, Mexico. The wedding was a large event-150 people, and boasted guests such as Eva Longoria. The outdoor wedding included over 150 people, and was filmed for a TLC 2 hour special, Mario & Courtney’s Wedding Fiesta, set to air December 8th.
Courtney wore a beautiful Ines Di Santo dress for the wedding, and had her hair up for a very special reason. The stylist said, “It was very important that [Courtney] had her hair up because Mario loves her hair pulled back. He met her with short hair, so he loves her having hair away from her face … And when I saw Mario right after the wedding, he told me, ‘I never thought you could make my wife look even more beautiful than she did that day.’” She donned a beautiful side chignon reminiscent of old Mexican actresses, and had a glitzed out clip to cover the chignon in the back. The flower girl, the couple’s 2 year old daughter Gia, who served as the flower girl, looked radiant as well, walking down the isle with the couple after the ceremony.
The wedding was a beach-meets-winter-wonderland theme, and the milti-tiered chocolate and red velvet cake was handcrafted by Cake Boss star buddy Velastro. The reception also had a mariachi band, which Courtney dressed down for, appearing in her second Ines Di Santo dress. She let down her hair for the reception and sported a Victoria Lake wave.
Lopez appeared on The Ellen show wednesday and bragged about the wedding, saying, “Looking back, I wouldn’t change a thing. My bride just looked like a little Italian princess.” He also was all smiles when talking about his daughter.”She was awesome” he gushed when referring to her performance as flower girl. So cute! Congratulations Courtney and Mario!
