Remember season 3 of American Idol? Well, of course you do. Forget Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia and William Hung, this was the season where Derrick Olivera (yes THE Derrick Olivera) made it to Hollywood and was among the top 25 contestants. He probably would have won that season, but he had his eyes on a bigger prize: Laura Patajo. Laura is the bride equivalent of winning American Idol and the couple’s wedding at Leal Vineyards was as beautiful as an TV show or movie. William Hung could not be reached for comment.
