“From the Vault” is our EXCLUSIVE daily peek into the extensive library of WOW shows, interviews, and pop culture ephemera we’ve collected over the last three decades.
Today, we make a BIG FUSS over one of all-time favorite WOWLebrities… the man with the million-dollar dimples… MARIO LOPEZ! It’s his birthday today (OMG YAY!) so we thought we’d dig up some old footage from a TLC special we did that followed him and his gorgeous bride Courtney Mazza as they prepared for their 2012 nuptials.
Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza are planning a spectacular wedding in exclusive Punta Mita, Mexico. Every detail is high-priority, so Courtney must locate the perfect dress, wrangle her wayward wedding planner, and mend her strained relationship with her father—all while chasing after their toddler!
Meanwhile, Mario’s schedule gets more hectic by the day as he takes on more work hosting X Factor and Extra, tries to squeeze in some alone time with Courtney, and jets to Las Vegas for a blowout bachelor party.
Can these two nail down every element, hold their family together, and make it down the aisle on time?
Below: The utter GORGEOUSNESS of Mario and Courtney’s Wedding Fiesta. Take it all in! The pomp! The pageantry! The gasp-worthy gown! Mario grinning from ear-to-ear! BFF Eva Longoria breaking down in tears! The family! The Mariachi band! It’s all TOO TOO FABULOUS!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARIO! WE LOVE YOU!
