Laura Bell Bundy Ties the Knot
Laura Bell Bundy is officially off the market after marrying longtime boyfriend Thom Hinkle, an executive at TBS, on June 3.
The pair said “I do” a horse racetrack called Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., and the bride stunned in her custom form-fitted strapless Sherri Hill dress, intricately beaded with a nude underlay.
“I knew I wanted a dress that was more sexy and slinky than ‘Cinderella goofy’ or big,” Bundy tells People. “The dress is elegant with some beading detail and also has a simplicity to it which I wanted.” The mermaid-style bodice complemented her perfectly, and she finished off the look with a unique floral crown and veil.

“I wanted to add more white to my look once I saw the neutral underlay on the dress,” the Broadway actress and singer explains. Bundy was a bit nervous about the dress’s fit, having only one fitting session in April at Hill’s showroom before the dress arrived.
“Naturally, I was quite anxious,” she says. “I received the dress on May 12, and had it altered by the seamstress on the set of Good Behavior.”
The bride and groom were engaged on New Year’s Eve in New Zealand, four years after they met.
“He is my rock. My Partner. My Best Friend. My roomie. My champion. My greatest most fun challenge. My make-out Partner. He’s the reason to my rhyme & he’s attempting to make me an honest woman,” she wrote in a sweet caption on her engagement photo on Instagram.
