Olivia, In Lazaro, Marries Jay!
Our beautiful Lovella Bride, Olivia Jordan, wore two absolutely stunning gowns by Lazaro and Galia Lahav! Paired with these wonderful gowns were beautiful jewelry and shoes by BHLDN. Olivia's makeup glam was done by Victoria McGrath and hair by Rooted Hair Studio. This spectacular wedding took place at the Avalon Hotel & Bungalows in Palm springs planned by Joey Lizotte of Artisan Events.
Here is a beautifully written excerpt from Olivia and Jay's publication on Brides;
In August 2016, actor Jay Hector knew exactly what his girlfriend of two years, Olivia Jordan, would want for a proposal. "He knew my heart was set on getting married in Palm Springs as we had our first romantic getaway there, so he planned a trip for us complete with a surprise proposal," recalls Olivia, a model, actress, and Miss USA 2015. While there, the couple visited the Avalon Hotel & Bungalows, where Jay admits that the setting was so perfect he almost popped the question on the spotthough, he had an elaborate proposal, with a photographer and rose petals, planned for the next day. Naturally, the couple decided to marry at the same venue on November 8, 2019. "It was an easy decision to get married in that exact spot where he had felt that magical feeling," Olivia says. However, the couple's relationship wasn't always as predictablethey met by a chance encounter in September 2016 while hiking the popular Runyon Canyon trail in Los Angeles. "We exchanged names, and Jay told me I had beautiful eyeshe always says that the white sunscreen smeared all over my face that day made my eyes look especially blue," she recalls with a laugh. "As soon as he complimented me, I ran away." Afterward, Jay realized they had one mutual friend and asked for Olivia's number. "I obliged to give my number to the cute hiker with the British accent," she says. "We met for afternoon tea on our first date at Cafe Gratitude and have been together ever since."
Congratulations Olvia and Jay! It was an honor to be part of this special day and we're wishing you two a lifetime of happiness together!
