Actress Ali Landry married film director Alejandro Gomez Monteverde on Saturday in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, her rep confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE.

Landry, 32, wore a strapless, ivory Monique Lhuillier drop-waist wedding gown with a sweetheart neckline and full ball gown skirt. The dress was made of hand-sewn layers of organza, tulle and chiffon. In keeping with the Mexican setting, Landry wore a paprika feathered bolero after the ceremony.

“He is so beyond amazing,” the Eve actress recently told Dolan Media Newswires of Monteverde. “When you dream of ‘the guy’ as a child, reading your fairy tales and thinking of Prince Charming, you think of all the things you want in a man. And he’s everything I thought was possible. He’s creative, passionate and would love to help change the world. I respect him so much.”

Landry, 32, and Monteverde, who reportedly met at Bible study last year, got engaged over Memorial Day weekend in 2005, and Landry will appear in the 2006 film Bella, which Monteverde wrote, produced and directed.

This is the second wedding for Landry, who wed Saved by the Bell star Mario Lopez on April 24, 2004. The couple split in June after seven weeks of marriage.

“I thought I had my life figured out and all of a sudden, the rug was ripped out from under me,” Landry said of the breakup. “I feel blessed that God has given me a second chance at my life.”
