In respect of Orosco's Mexican heritage and as a nod to Cinco de Mayo, the couple got married on Saturday, May 5 at the historic John Sowden house.
Julie Benz, the Rita Morgan of Showtime's "Dexter" is married for the second time. The actress tied the knot to marketing executive Rich Orosco in a Mexican theme wedding on Saturday, May 5 evening. They picked the theme to pay respect to Orosco's Mexican heritage and Cinco de Mayo.
According to People, the couple got married inside the historic John Sowden house in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. The John Sowden house aka Jaws House is famous for its striking facade, resembling either a Mayan temple or the gaping open mouth of a great white shark.
Benz and Orosco were engaged in June last year. She joked that her dog did not take the news well, tweeting, "One boy who is not happy about the news of my engagement... He thought we were exclusive...." She then invited 20 guests to her bridal shower at the famous Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, in Hollywood, CA last month. Since the party's theme is "Sweet and Spicy", they had cooking lesson for such menus.
Benz was previously married to actor John Kassir from 1998 to 2007.
