They’re officially husband and wife, and now Mario Lopez and his bride Courtney Mazza are telling fans about the most intimate—and outrageous—moments from their wedding day.
“When my beautiful bride turned the corner and I saw her for the very first time, I gotta say, I got a little emotional,” Mario admits on his radio show, 104.3 MYFM's On With Mario Lopez, of the pair’s Dec.1 nuptials in Punta Mita, Mexico. “The eyes started getting a little watery and she just looked like an Italian princess. As she was walking towards me, I started to kinda go! And then I saw my other little princess Gia as a flower girl and it was like game over.”
And Courtney returned the compliment, telling her new hubby just how hot he looked as a groom!
“When I stepped on the aisle to walk down to you, I first couldn’t believe that we had all these amazing people here for us, but when I saw you standing there…I mean… I think you’re the most handsome thing on the planet, but you just looked incredible that day. It was just the happiest moment of my life.”
But that was just the beginning of their unforgettable affair. The star-studded reception was filled with laughter, love and even a pool party!
“The reaction I got from all of our guests was priceless,” Mario says to Courtney. “Because with the mariachis, the salsa band, the DJ, the fireworks, Andy Grammer performing with you with him, I mean… it just kept going on and on. And the alcohol— and specifically tequila—was flowing, and we had an impromptu pool party!”
So which glammed-up guests took part in the splash fest?
“Everyone jumped in the pool to celebrate with us— you in your wedding dress!” Mario reminds his new bride, with her adding, “That’s right, babe. It was the best party. I’m so excited that everybody out there gets to experience what we went through that day and see me in the pool in my wedding dress!”
