Representing their shared love of nature, the couple wed under a canopy of trees over 800 years old. The perfect backdrop for the bride's ethereal wedding dress. Hilary, best known for her Oscar-winning role in Million Dollar Baby, wore a dress by Ellie Sabb couture made of 25 metres of Chantilly lace, silk chiffon and organza silk. "I've loved Elie Saab for years and was thrilled to have him design my dress," Swank told Vogue U.S.
Adding, "I wanted something romantic that felt as timeless as the redwood grove where we were to be married, and he delivered—designing something that far surpassed my greatest expectations. It was everything I imagined and more.”
SVU star Mariska Hargitay fulfilled the role of maid of honour, while the groom's father was the best man.
Hilary and Philip began dating after being set up on a blind date in 2016 and were engaged 18-months later. Recalling Scnider's proposal, the 44-year-old said, "We stumbled upon a beautiful sanctuary deep in the mountains.
“It had a stunning waterfall that cascades down to rustic cabins built in the 1800s surrounded by beautiful pines and big skies. One evening, Philip dropped to his knee in front of the waterfall and proposed—he sweetly made sure my dogs were nearby so they could bear witness!”
