Ugly Betty's Ana Ortiz Gets Married in Puerto Rico
Guests at the ceremony include the bride's costars America Ferrera and Ashley Jensen
Ana Ortiz, who plays America Ferrera’s older sister on Ugly Betty, married musician Noah Lebenzon on Saturday in Puerto Rico.
Ortiz, 36, wore a white lace Monique Lhuillier gown, and Lebenzon, 37, wore a gray Prada suit at the afternoon ceremony in the veranda of the Horned Dorset Primavera Hotel in Rincén, Puerto Rico.
The 85 guests included Ugly Betty cast members Ferrera, Ashley Jensen and Mark Indelicato.
“The wedding was spectacular,” says Lisa Blades, Lebenzon’s aunt and owner of the event company In Any Event who served as the couple’s wedding planner.
“With Ana’s work load and the success and craziness that come with a hit TV show, I think that Noah has been a great stabilizing force in her life. Committing to each other in marriage is calming for both of them.”
Before heading to Puerto Rico, Ortiz, who has decided to keep her maiden name, also celebrated with a bridal shower and afternoon tea at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills on May 18, where she received such items as a digital camera, cookware, and lingerie. The couple, joined by 30 friends, also had a joint bachelor and bachelorette party at Tao in Las Vegas on May 24.
Ortiz and Lebenzon, who began dating in 2004, were set up by mutual friends. Their pals told them to meet at Lucy’s El Adobe Cafe in Hollywood, but the friends didn’t show up for hours, leaving Ortiz and Lebenzon, who had already met a few times before, on an unplanned date. They became engaged in August of 2006.
