  Rubio and Nagera rented out the entire park. Orchids, white roses and floating candles were brought in by the truck load.

The attraction's underground river was sprinkled with floating candles that led to the reception area at the picturesque La Isla Salon.

It was a spectacular sight for those that were lucky enough to get in.

Rubio arrived on the entertainment scene after starting in the children's group Timbiriche. She truly gained her superstar status when she made her solo debut in 1992 with "The Golden Girl". Her other albums also include "Pau-Latina" and "Ananda".
