Cue Hilary Duff's "Coming Clean" because we're having a major Laguna Beach throwback moment. All of the former Hollister-clad teens of the franchise are all grown up and getting married, having babies, and basically just making us feel really, really old. The latest Laguna Beach resident to tie the knot? Remember Dieter Schmitz? Back in the day, he was Lauren Conrad and Stephen Colletti's BFF and dated drama queen Jessica Smith during their high school years. But now he's playing the part of a groom, as Schmitz just tied the knot with his sweetheart in a beautiful California ceremony. And you might just recognize a few familiar faces on the guest list — including Lauren Conrad!
Now the manager of EVEN Hotel Times Square South, Schmitz popped the question to his bride, Isabell Hiebl, over two years ago with a gorgeous cushion-cut diamond engagement ring, and the big day finally arrived this weekend. The couple exchanged vows on Saturday at the Intercontinental Clement Monterey hotel. Their to-die-for ceremony locale? A waterside spot, overlooking Monterey Bay.
On the big day, the bride wore a lovely lace wedding dress while Schmitz accessorized his classic black suit with a white boutonniere, as they said their "I do's" under a flower-adorned ceremony arch.
No, Lauren Conrad was sadly not a bridesmaid, but she did attend the nuptials along with a few other of Schmitz's MTV co-stars, including Trey Phillips, Stephen Colletti, and Loren Polster. In a pre-ceremony snapshot of the groomsmen, Phillips tagged his boys, writing, "Happy Day!!!! Here we go @dieterschmitz ! @benjammin2686 @lorenpolster @stephencolletti."
Meanwhile, Colletti shared his friend's excitement, posting a photo of himself and the groom on the 'Gram, writing "One proud groomsman. The German king scores himself a lovely Austrian queen. And all is well..."
And Lauren Conrad also got in on the social media fun, adding a snapshot of herself and Schmitz to her Instagram Story and one of the beautiful bride and groom to her account.
Post-"I do's," it seems like the couple is basking in the newlywed bliss. "Still pinching myself to make sure this is reality," Schmitz wrote on Instagram. "What an amazing night. @isathebell Schmitz I love you!" According to E! News, the pair is heading to a dream honeymoon in Bali, Australia, and Hong Kong. We're sure Jessica Smith is totally jealous...
