Mario Lopez, Courtney Mazza Marry in Mexico

Mario Lopez and his longtime love Courtney Mazza wed in a beach ceremony in Mexico on December 1.

The ceremony was taped for an upcoming televised special, which is scheduled to air December 8 on TLC (similar to Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum’s nuptials) in a special called “Mario & Courtney’s Wedding Fiesta.” The couple met when they costarred in the revival of Broadway’s “A Chorus Line.” Lopez proposed during a New Year’s trip to Ixtapa, Mexico. The couple has been together for 4 years.

A Catholic priest officiated the traditional ceremony at sunset. Actress Eva Longoria walked down the aisle as a bridesmaid. Who was the flower girl? The “X Factor” host’s 2-year-old daughter Gia, who wore a dress that matched her mom’s exquisite gown. Despite rumors, we cannot confirm that Screech officiated.

According to Us Magazine, before the ceremony Lopez remarked that he was letting Mazza take the reins on the wedding planning. “It’s her day, so I’m cool with what she wants,” he remarked. “But I’m involved with the reception, because I want it to be a big party.”

Now that Lopez has put a ring on it, Mazza is thrilled. But she says the love was there long before the ceremony. “The only thing that’s going to change is my last name. Same love, same everything!”

And the twosome are looking to expand their family next! “We’re working on that.” says Lopez, “Right after the wedding. We’ll wait for the guests to leave and then we’re getting right on that!”

This is the second marriage for Lopez, who wed model Ali Landry in 2004, only to have the union annulled two weeks later. It is the first marriage for Mazza.

Congrats to the “Saved By the Bell” alum and his beautiful bride!
