Here comes the bride … and the camera crew.
Mario Lopez and fiancée Courtney Mazza will exchange vows in front of their family, friends – and anyone with TLC – as the couple embarks on filming a two-hour wedding special that airs Dec. 8 (8 p.m. ET).
“Courtney and I already feel incredibly blessed to have found each other and thank God for our beautiful daughter Gia. Our family is looking forward to celebrating our wedding later this year,” Lopez said in a statement.
