Actress Julie Benz had a very special Cinco de Mayo on Saturday (05May12) - she married her fiance Rich Orosco in a Mexican-themed ceremony.
The former Dexter star and her marketing executive beau walked down the aisle at the historic John Sowden house in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The couple, which became engaged last June (11), honored the groom's Mexican heritage by exchanging vows on the Cinco de May (Fifth of May) holiday at a colourful wedding attended by family and friends.
Their nuptials followed the "pop-up Mexican fiesta" engagement party Orosoco arranged as a surprise last June (11) at their L.A. home for 60 friends and family.
Benz told Us Weekly after the bash, "I can't believe that none of my friends leaked the surprise. It was like a Navy Seal operation."
She was previously married to actor John Kassir from 1998 before their split in 2007.
