‘The Closer’: Brenda Leigh’s eBay Wedding Dress
Monday night’s season finale of “The Closer” featured a beautiful wedding ceremony between Brenda Leigh and Fritz. The couple exchanged vows in front of family and friends on a hotel balcony overlooking the ocean.
Brenda Leigh wore a boat neck silk taffeta wedding gown by Priscilla of Boston. Costume designer Greg Lavoi reveals that the wedding dress was purchased on eBay for $29.00. The original buyer, Judy Schlecht, bought the dress for $100 in 1959. She wore it at her wedding the same year.
While the bride’s look was vintage, the groom’s was classic. He wore a midnight blue Hugo Boss suit with a silk tie by Armani.
After a honeymoon in Italy, the newlyweds are expected back on major crime scenes all over Los Angeles as “The Closer” begins season five.
