Rodrigo Garcia And Erika Paola Gutierrez Engaged

by Sophie Pyle · June 18, 2012

We love a good power couple tying the knot. A few weeks ago, nightlife king Rodrigo Garcia, 40, proposed to PR maven Erika Paola Gutierrez, 29, while they were vacationing at the elegant Little Palm Island in Florida on May 27.

Rodrigo was once a partner of the exclusive L2 Lounge, and is now a partner at Serendipity 3, home of the $1,000 sundae. Erika's PR clients include top restaurants LincolnHudsonOpera and SAX, to name a few.

The pair come from royal Washington families. Rodrigo's mother, Marlena, was married to Canadian entrepreneur and former Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke until he passed away in 1997. Erika's father, Carlos Gutierrez, was the CEO of Kellogg's in the 90's and the U.S. Secretary of Commerce from 2005-2009.

The couple is a staple at society events in Washington, from the Meridian Ball to VIP restaurant opening nights.
