Dr. Harold P. Freeman, a long-time friend and colleague, was honored to give the bride away. Dr. Freeman was previously Senior Advisor to the Director of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and is also the Founder of the Harold P. Freeman Patient Navigation Institute. He is the pioneer of Patient Navigation and met Dee Dee during the filming of  The Education of Dee Dee Ricks .

"I was honored to give Dee Dee away to her husband, Armando," says Dr. Freeman. "Our friendship grew out of a shared commitment to help others. The result is that countless individuals who needed assistance to obtain timely quality health care have benefited from patient navigation. I am very proud to have Dee Dee as a partner in this life saving work." 

The bride chose her favorite designer, Angel Sanchez, to custom design her dress.

"When I first met Dee Dee, I was seduced by her delicate being and her human nature," says Sanchez. "Immediately, I suggested a very ethereal gown for her – light-weight and made completely in tulle silk, with a touch of color. We decided on a very soft ice blue as the foundation of the gown, which complemented her beautiful eyes. I came up with covered sequence embroidery on the tulle, which makes it look like a modern lace but the same time, also very classic and timeless. This gown expresses perfectly the personality and beauty of Dee Dee."

Cristela Russo was the Wedding Planner.

"I am very grateful and proud that the bride and groom have placed their confidence in me to supervise such an important moment of their lives," says Cristela.
