LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a potential candidate for governor, is a married man again.

The 63-year-old Villaraigosa tied the knot Saturday with Patricia Govea in a ceremony in central Mexico, with about 100 friends and family in attendance.

The couple’s website says the black-tie event took place at a hotel in San Miguel de Allende, a popular tourist destination known for its historic buildings.

The Democratic former state Assembly speaker is widely expected to run for governor in 2018.

Govea works in the fashion industry. The Sacramento Bee reported earlier this year she was born in Mexico and came to the U.S. in 2004.

The night before the wedding, the website says the couple planned a “Mexican musical parade” through the neighborhood.

Villaraigosa’s prior marriage ended in divorce.
