When Hilaria Thomas (now Baldwin!) was planning her June 30 wedding, she didn’t have a vision for a “dream wedding gown” in mind.

“I originally went in [to Amsale] wanting something very simple,” says the bride, who, along with her new husband, sat down with PEOPLE two days after her nuptials to dish about their big day. “I tried on maybe three dresses: one was short, one was a big poofy thing and then this one (below)! I loved it.”

The dress designer, Amsale Aberra, says that the choice was a no-brainer.

“The last time I saw it was on the runway, and she was the very first bride to try it on,” Aberra, who helped Thomas choose the dress, tells PEOPLE. “She put it on — my gosh — she was just stunning. It was really just beautiful.”

One reason the dress seemed so perfect, says Aberra, was that it was in keeping with Thomas’s low-key attitude toward the nuptials.

“She is really down-to-earth and having that simplicity was important to her,” says the designer, who also dressed Baldwin’s daughter Ireland and Thomas’s mother. “It’s not about saying, ‘Make me something nobody has seen! Make me an outrageous dress!’ She’s a very easy-going person, and it did fit her personality.”

To complete the look, Aberra’s team suggested that Thomas wear a traditional mantilla — a Spanish veil — as a nod to her roots. (The bride’s family lives in Mallorca.)

“The entire look was just so — I hate to use the word perfect — but perfect,” Aberra says with a laugh. “She was perfect. [We said], ‘Don’t adjust anything! Don’t touch anything!'”

For more photos from the big day — and an exclusive interview with the Baldwins about their wedding, honeymoon and plans for the future — pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

Whats up with the creepy expression Alec? I think a smile would have been a much better choice!

Eileen on

They put a candid photo out for the world to see and BAM! The public goes nuts.
They have just as much shot as you do….maybe even more especially since money is the #1 reason couples split.
Hes violent….obnoxious and seemingly mean. I agree. However, we dont know him. Are you judging him by what the papparazzi says? Seriously?

Wish them the best and let fate happen, regardless.

I give it three years and two kids and she will claim abuse and divorce kaching kaching $$$$$

She is an average looking latino girl that looks great with makeup artists, fancy dresses (which he pays for), and learned early how to pose. He is trying to show the entire world that he has a cute younger woman. i don’t think he is mean or violent, just a spoiled arrogant celebrity. he is so taken by her, he will give her the world. and believe me, her “low key, simple” bs will soon look a lot different. i give it 3 years, and she will definitely try to get preggers ASAP to secure her future!

perfect dress for her, not too flashy and really lovely. Good luck to them both.

She is pregnant.
