On this date: August 7, 1966 – Latin music king Xavier Cugat, age 60, and singer Charo, age 20, were the first couple to exchange vows at Caesars Palace. Cugat discovered Charo — whose birth name is María Rosario Pilar Martínez Molina Baeza, while performing in Spain in a production of "Night of the Iguana." She went on to bring a little "Coochie, coochie" into the lives of millions.
