Eva Longoria and José Antonio Bastón married at a private residence in a sunset wedding ceremony in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, which People reports is “a lakeside town roughly 88 miles from Mexico City.” Details about the wedding were provided exclusively to People by an anonymous source. Al Rojo Vivo, a Telemundo news program, seems to have acquired photos of the ceremony that were taken with a telephoto lens, which were posted to the hispanophone media outlet’s Instagram account on Saturday evening. People did not make it clear whether these photos were taken by an employee of Al Rojo Vivo.
“They married on an altar under lots of little lights. It was very romantic. Eva wore her hair down and smiled during the whole ceremony. He was in a gray suit.”
Eva Longoria’s wedding dress is shown to be a sleeveless, minimalist white gown in the photos that were provided by Al Rojo Vivo. As reported by Us Weekly earlier this week, the wedding dress was designed by acclaimed designer Victoria Beckham, a longtime close friend of Eva Longoria. Victoria Beckham was included in the celebrity-laden wedding guest list along with her husband, soccer legend David Beckham.
The Beckhams were pictured in Al Rojo Vivo‘s wedding photos, celebrating alongside Eva Longoria and José Antonio Bastón. A source told Us Weekly that Eva Longoria’s Victoria Beckham wedding dress is bespoke. Longoria often wears Beckham’s designs for special occasions; they are known for being minimalist. People reports that Longoria also wore a long white veil.

People learned ahead of time from one of their anonymous sources that the wedding was taking place in Mexico on the weekend of May 21. The source reported that in addition to David and Victoria Beckham, the guest list included close friend Ricky Martin, as well as Penélope Cruz, Katy Perry, Mario Lopez, Amaury Nolasco, and Jaime Camil. Ricky Martin joined the Beckhams as the bridal couple’s chosen company for the day leading up to their wedding ceremony, as Eva Longoria and her new husband relaxed with them by the pool earlier on Saturday.
People claims to have spoken to a second anonymous source about Eva Longoria’s wedding, who stated that Longoria was not at all the stereotypical nervous bride, and has been very relaxed and happy throughout her wedding weekend so far.
“Eva just looked so happy. She didn’t seem the least stressed about her wedding. You could tell that she very much enjoyed celebrating her special day with friends.”
Eva Longoria, age 41, is a philanthropist. The Eva Longoria Foundation has as its mission statement, “The Eva Longoria Foundation helps Latinas build better futures for themselves and their families through education and entrepreneurship.” Her new husband reportedly shares a love of philanthropy with her, and works with her to support the Global Gift Foundation.

She and her new husband, José Antonio Bastón, age 47, first went public as a couple in November 2013. José Antonio Bastón goes by the nickname “Pepé.” He proposed to Eva Longoria in December when the two were on vacation in Dubai, and presented his fiancée with an unusual ruby engagement ring.
