The wedding of [[Maria]] and [[Luis]] follows a year-long arc in which the [[Maria and Luis fall in love and get married|couple fell in love and decided to get married]].
For years, [[Maria]] and [[Luis]] had just been friends and coworkers, but around Season 19, [[Sonia Manzano]] became pregnant, and it was decided to have them fall in love, get married, and then have her become pregnant with [[Gabi|Gabriela]]. They had fallen in love in [[Episode 2404]], and then got engaged in [[Episode 2455]]. After [[Sesame_Street_story_arcs#marialuismarry|a season-long arc following their courtship]], they finally get married.
 
   
 
[[Bob]] is the best man, while [[Linda]] is the maid of honor. [[Elmo]] plays the important role of ring bearer. The guests are as follows: Tio José (Luis' uncle), [[Mrs. Figueroa]] (Maria's mother), [[Susan]] and [[Gordon]] with [[Miles]], [[David]], [[Uncle Wally]], [[Gina]], [[Mr. Macintosh]], [[Big Bird]], [[Oscar the Grouch|Oscar]], [[Grundgetta]], [[Two-Headed Monster|The Two-Headed Monster]], [[Herry Monster|Herry]], [[Telly Monster|Telly]], [[Bert]], [[Ernie]], [[Count von Count|the Count]], [[Cookie Monster]], [[The Amazing Mumford|Mumford]], [[Grover]], assorted [[The Kids|kids]], [[Richard Termine]] and Martha O'Connor (children's casting director for the show).
Previously, Maria and [[David]] had been seen as a couple. Both ''[[Street Gang]]'' and ''[[Sesame Street: A Celebration - 40 Years of Life on the Street]]'' give different explanations as to why Luis was chosen over David. According to ''40 Years'', David was considered to marry Maria first but, Northern Calloway declined so he could obtain treatment for a long-standing and debilitating illness,<ref>[[Louise Gikow|Gikow, Louise]] ''Sesame Street: A Celebration - 40 Years of Life on the Street'', page 78</ref> while Street Gang states that he was devastated over the fact that Maria wasn’t marrying David.<ref name="SG">''Street Gang'', page 293</ref> As Dulcy Singer said, “I thought it would be better to do it with Luis because I didn’t want to open another kettle of fish. It was enough to get a wedding on the show and have a family without opening ourselves to more difficulties. And I thought it would be a good and helpful thing to show a stable Latino family.”<ref name="SG">''Street Gang'', page 293</ref>
