Who: "Showgirls" actress Elizabeth Berkley and artist Greg Lauren

When: November 1, 2003

Where: Esperanza Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Pre-wedding Festivities: Wanting to share their happiness with those they love, the bride and groom invited one hundred friends and family members to join them for a three day celebration at Esperanza Resort, which was voted the top Mexico and Central American resort by Travel and Leisure Magazine. Guests were pampered with a variety of spa treatments, taught the seductive art of salsa dancing, and treated to a viewing under the stars of the romantic classic "Casablanca" on a movie screen set up on the beach. Gift bags were filled with items to ensure enjoyment of the relaxed surroundings, including flip-flops and T-shirts commemorating the event, which were provided by wedding coordinator to the stars, Mindy Weiss.

The Ceremony: Standing beneath a chuppah decorated with garlands of orchids, hydrangeas and roses, the Hollywood couple held hands as the rabbi performed a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony. Friends, including "Flashdance" star Jennifer Beals,  watched the proceedings on comfortable sofas, ottomans and chairs set up on the beach as the waves lapped up on the shore and the sun began to sink into the Sea of Cortez.

The Dress:
The entire wedding party was garbed in creations by designer Ralph Lauren, the uncle of the groom. The bride's sun-bronzed skin was emphasized by a pale lime silk sheath dress accented with delicate pearl straps which criss-crossed the gown's low cut back. The casual atmosphere was reflected in the bride's loosely upswept hairdo.  

An orchid bouquet fashioned by Mark's Garden of Los Angeles harmonized with the flowers adorning the chuppah.
The groom wore his relative's designs with pride, donning a white tuxedo jacket, black bow tie and black trousers for the occasion. Elizabeth's attendants were clothed in a kaleidescope of tropical colors, creating a rainbow effect as they stood beside the bride during the seaside ceremony.

First Dance: Known for her moves in the cult hit "Showgirls", it was her love of dance which led the actress to the man who would become her husband. The twosome, who met while attending a dance class, took to the dance floor as the '80's ballad "Crazy For You" played, before kicking up their heels to "You're The One That I Want" from "Grease."
