Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis is set to marry his on-again off-again girlfriend of four years, Christina McLarty.

McLarty, the niece of Bill Clinton's former White House chief of staff, Mack McLarty, is a NYU grad and Los Angeles-based reporter for CBS affiliate CBS2/KCAL9.

Francis, 37, proposed to McLarty while on vacation in St. Tropez, and plans a non-traditional wedding.

"We have chosen to have a civil domestic partnership because we don't believe it's appropriate to be married until our gay and lesbian friends are afforded the same rights as us to legally marry in the United States," he said.

200 guests will witness the ceremony, which will take place at Francis' beachfront estate in Punta, Mita, Mexico, sometime in September.  Quincy Jones will serve as best man.
