When I look at Cindy & Hal’s wedding pictures done by Sweet Little Photographs, I can’t help but wish I had been there! Everyone looks so happy and genuinely having the best time. Fun, fun, party in the sun in Palm Springs at the Ace Hotel and the dress of course is a stunner! Cindy wore and found her dress “Elsa” by Watters here at Lovely LA and we are just smitten that we were able to help her find “The One” here. Now of course, “The One” is more profound as her now husband, Hal, and what a cutie! Congrats to Cindy & Hal and this new adventure they take together!
Now a few words from the bride herself…
Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.
I fell in love with this dress the first time I put it on. It was everything I wanted. When I imagined what I wanted my wedding dress to be I wanted a classy somewhat vintage look with lace and a fun, sexy back. I knew I was getting married in Palm Springs, so I wanted something comfortable and lightweight. I tried on a ton of dresses in every style imaginable but something changed when I put this one on at Lovely, everything just came together and I knew it was THE dress. I also started tearing up and got really giddy.
What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?
It was all about location and finding the right venue for us. We wanted everything to happen in the same place: the ceremony, reception and where our guests stay. We also didn’t want the night be cut short by an early curfew. The ACE hotel in Palm Springs provided all of that. Most of our family and friends stayed at the hotel with us so it felt like we were surrounded by our loved ones and had a non-stop party the whole weekend!
What was the most memorable moment?
There were so many amazing moments but there are two that really stand out. Reciting our vows to each other during the ceremony and having all of our loved ones in tears around us. Then at the end of the night once the music stopped I starting running and jumped into the pool with my wedding dress on and then having everyone at the wedding jump into the pool, most of them with all of their clothes on!
If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?
Try not to stress out. It all works out in the end and everything comes together even when you think it might not. And when it comes to the day, really stop and look around and take it all in. Like everyone says it does go by so fast so just enjoy every second, take time to have moments with your bridesmaids and most importantly your groom and have the time of your life!
