Broadway star Laura Bell Bundy marries in California

June 5 (UPI) -- Broadway star Laura Bell Bundy tied the knot in California over the weekend.


The 36-year-old actress and singer wed TBS executive Thom Hinkle at Santa Anita Park horse racetrack Saturday in Arcadia.


"I get to call @thomhinkle my husband in 8 hours!! #wedding #weddingday," she wrote on Instagram.


People reported Bundy and Hinkle married in a country-themed ceremony in front of their family and friends. The actress wore a lace Sherri Hill gown with a fitted mermaid shape and a strapless sweetheart neckline.


"I knew I wanted a dress that was more sexy and slinky than 'Cinderella goofy' or big," she told the magazine. "The dress is elegant with some beading detail and also has a simplicity to it which I wanted."


Bundy and Hinkle got engaged in December 2015 after four years of dating. The actress couldn't help but gush about Hinkle in a post on Instagram at the time.


"The way we've come out of differences & challenges as better more realized versions of ourselves has only deepened our love & connection... And allows me to believe we have what it takes to grow young togther. It allows me to believe in love in general," she wrote.


"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. I said 'YES!' #engaged," the star added.


Bundy is known for playing Amber Von Tusle in Hairspray and Elle Woods in Legally Blonde: The Musical on Broadway. She has also appeared on the TV series Hart of Dixie and Anger Management.
