Known for her acting roles on The Bold and the Beautiful, General Hospital, Beverly Hills, 90210, The Young and the Restless, and Desperate Housewives, Eva Longoria married José “Pepe” Antonio Bastón in Mexico on Saturday, May 21. Instagram gave sneak peeks into their celebration of love.
The actress, 41, and husband, 47 were first spotted as a couple back in November 2013. Since then, Bastón, who is the president of the latin American media brand Televisa has made many guest appearances by her side. He proposed in December to the star while on vacation in Dubai, brandishing a remarkable ruby engagement ring.
The Small, Intimate Ceremony
Before the ceremony, the small party (approximately 80 guests) enjoyed cocktails and a live performance by Pro Down, a band with special needs members. The couple wedded in Valle de Bravo, Mexico under an altar with a large cross, decked out with little lights. It was held at Bastón’s garden home under the beautiful pink sunset on the shore of Lake Avandaro. The theme of the party was a white, elegant look with Longoria wearing a sleeveless sheath white gown designed by Victoria Beckham and her hair long and loose, styled by Ken Paves. Her husband donned a gray three-piece suit by Brunello Cucinelli, an Italian designer. Their simple gold wedding bands are from Berger and Son.
Celebrating in Grandeur
It is reported that prior to the wedding, the couple spent their wedding day relaxing poolside with the Beckhams and Martin, perfectly happy and unstressed about their wedding plans. As Eva stood at the altar, her husband surprised her by singing “Save the Best for Last,” by Vanessa Williams. The couple’s first dance was to Colombian singer Carlos Vives. Many close friends and family attended the wedding including some familiar names in the show business such as Ricky Martin, Mario Lopez, Melanie Griffith, and Victoria and David Beckham. The wedding party ended the night with a spectacular fireworks display. The newlyweds are heading off to a private destination.
