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.

When was the last time anyone heard about his temper? Seems to me he has turned around – I hope so and wish them the best. Stop hating, makes you all seem jealous.

Jessica Simpleton on

She’s arrogant and smug because she married for money, and he married for youth and beauty. I give it less than 2 years.

GORGEOUS!!! Love the Mantilla…love the dress…love everything.

Julie on

She is a very beautiful girl and I wish her luck, she will need it with him for a husband. I wanted to see her dress but do not want to see anything about him, he wants his privacy and is violent/rude when he doesn’t get his own way.

Pam on

I do not like the first picture, he looks creepy, she has a gold digger vibe to her.

The second picture, the gown and veil are gorgeous.

Wish them well, however, I feel it will end sooner rather than later.

Mr. Baldwin, congratulations on your marriage!
She is an adorable young woman!
To all you jealous individuals out there, I will now educate you about current relationships: In Europe, it is 100% common for a younger girl to marry an older man! I suggest you do as Mr. Baldwin did: turn off your computers, and go out in the world and be social!

Be safe, Hilaria!

Just My Opinion on

Girl, keep a bag packed and a separate bank account! HE HAS ANGER ISSUES, ASK KIM AND HIS DAUGHTER!

NY Guy1 on

“It is 100% common ..” isn’t even grammatically correct… and what’s there to be jealous of? He’s old, vicious, violent and a horrible father. He’s married a woman just to have more children and she sees him as a sugar daddy.. plain and simple. My hubby’s way hotter than Alec and he’s not old and creepy!!

It looks like their heads are photoshopped on their bodies.
