Mario Lopez ready to wed in Mexico on Saturday
Posted November 30, 2012
Cute couple Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza are getting ready to wed. (As Brad Pitt says, "The time is nigh!")
Eva Longoria is already in Mexico for the big event, tweeting, "So excited to be here!"
In Touch is reporting that nuptials will happen Saturday at Girls Gone Wild guru Joe Francis' Casa Aramara villa in Punta Mita.
Joe confirms that on his website, with a note that says, "I've been friends with Mario for more than a decade and I met Courtney on one of their very first dates over 4 years ago. I have never seen a couple more in love and committed to each other and their family. I love them both very much and I'm honored to be a part of their special day."
But first, a pre-wedding party will take place tonight, featuring a taco bar, a fresh fruit bar, a Tequila bar and bonfires on the beach. Sounds perfect to us!
In Touch says to expect the ceremony to be a more formal affair, with the couple exchanging vows at 5 p.m. ET in front of a Catholic priest, who will be flown in by Lopez.
It's all being filmed for a TLC special - Mario & Courtney's Wedding Fiesta airs Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. - so it makes sense that the cake will be designed by TLC's Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro. In Touch says it will consist of "alternating layers of chocolate and red velvet, with a creamy vanilla frosting."
The couple said long ago that their daughter, Gia, 2 will be the flower girl.
But as for a honeymoon? That's being put on hold. Lopez is too busy juggling The X Factor and Extra.
