“CSI” star Eva LaRue tells the new issue of InStyle Weddings she plans to marry businessman Joe Cappuccio on a Mexican beach in June. “The wedding location is either Cancun on Acapulco,” she says. “We’re huge Mexican food fans.”
The couple will host 40 friends at the destination wedding and plans to serve Pomegranate margaritas as their specialty drink. They will also pass out Havaiana flip flops so guests can dig their toes into the sand following the ceremony.
LaRue says she plans to wear her hair loose, in big windswept curls, and that she will do her own makeup in shades of gold and brown. As for the dress she says, “I want one that’s long but not too poufy. I haven’t had a chance to go shopping yet.”
The couple, who have both been married twice before, went on their first date at a wine bar in Pasadena and at the time told each other they were looking for long-term companionship. “Within a month or two were were both on the wedding train,” says LaRue. “It just seemed silly to not marry the person you’ve loved more than anybody.”
Cappuccio proposed at the mouth of Victoria Falls in Africa six months later.
