Julie Benz, Rich Orosco Married: Couple Weds On Cinco De Mayo

Actress Julie Benz and Rich Orosco had cause to celebrate this weekend -- and it wasn't just because of Cinco de Mayo.

The pair, who have been together for more than five years, tied the knot on Saturday at the historic John Sowden house in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, People reports.

The couple's wedding featured a Mexican theme, in a nod to the Cinco de Mayo holiday and the groom's heritage. The pair's engagement party also had a Mexican feel; it featured a mariachi band, a taco truck and shots of tequila as part of the celebration.

Orosco, a marketing executive, popped the question to the former "Dexter" star with a sparkling custom Kwiat cushion-cut diamond and platinum engagement ring in June 2011.
