For any wedding-planning singles, Huntington Beach provides access to some great resources. That access has resulted from this California Beach town's relative proximity to Los Angeles.
For example in December of 2005 designer Kevan Hall unveiled a number of exquisite gowns, some of which may reappear at one or more Huntington Beach wedding. Hall had arranged for his presentation to take place at a hotel in Culver City, a town not more than ten minutes from the Los Angeles Airport (LAX). That Culver City hotel was a location that could be easily reached by someone planning a Huntington Beach wedding.
The bride who wears one of Hall's gowns secures for herself assurance that she will enter her wedding celebration looking strikingly elegant. In fact, Hall's gowns are so elegant that any bride wearing one could appear at her wedding to look very much like the opera singer Maria Callas. Yet that opera diva, who reached the peak of her career in the 1950s and 1960s, was never at a Huntington Beach wedding.
If a Maria Callas fan goes to such a wedding during 2006, that fan might see a bride wearing one of Hall's bias-cut gowns. At the presentation in December of 2005 Hall showed that such gowns were available in many different colors. A future bride willing to be untraditional could walk down the aisle dressed in Verdi green, teal, chocolate, blonde, topaz or amethyst. Her Callas-inspired gown would have beaded and embroidered straps and just a hint of a train.
Perhaps if Maria Callas were to have seen one of Hall's gowns she would have recognized the extent to which Hall had copied what he referred to as the diva's "restrained elegance." Perhaps she would have noticed that the styling of her own clothes bore a marked resemblance to the styling Hall had made available to the future brides in Huntington Beach.
A young girl from Huntington Beach who preferred to stay with the more tried and true white color for her wedding gown might consider getting a Hall gown to take on her honeymoon, available for use during a special evening out. Such a gown would probably be used long after both the Huntington Beach wedding and the honeymoon. That is because Hall's evening wear is not only beautiful, it is also practical.
At the December presentation it became apparent that Kevan Hall had created more than gowns for use at a Huntington Beach wedding. He also created exciting outfits that a bride could wear as she departs for her honeymoon. One of his traveling outfits was especially popular with the local singles. Huntington Beach residents would no doubt be impressed if a bride left the wedding scene wearing a pair of Hall's wide leg, multi-colored, embroidered pants.
Next year, if Kevan Hall again makes a presentation at a spot near LAX, the future Huntington Beach brides shall get to choose from a new season of outfits. Next year Hall's fashion could have an entirely different inspiration. But whatever it is, it could without a doubt influence the attire worn at one or more Huntington Beach wedding.
