She wore an exquisite Elie Saab Couture gown and bespoke Christian Dior shoes.

 

There was strewn lights and a redwood forest and we are simply in awe of Hilary Swank's stunningly beautiful Californian wedding. 

 

The Academy-Award winning actor tied the knot with her partner of two years, social venture entrepreneur Philip Schneider in the dream setting. 

 

The 44-year-old bride spoke about her romantic day to Vogue, gushing, “it was timeless. There is just no other way to describe it.'' 

 

“I was overwhelmed with such gratitude and thanks to be marrying the man of my dreams and to see all the people we love together in the middle of such a profound setting. It was truly a dream come true.”

 

 

Hilary's dad walked her down the aisle, only a few years after he was recovering from a lung transplant. 

 

Her wedding dress was - wait for it - made of 25 meters of Chantilly lace, eight meters of silk chiffon, and six meters of organza silk - and it took 150 hours to create.

 

OMG, is all we have to say to that. 

 

“I’ve loved Elie Saab for years and was thrilled to have him design my dress,” Hilary says.

 

“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.”

 

 

The ethereal theme continued throughout the day, beginning with the couple marrying beneath a family of 800-year-old trees, and carrying on to the reception, which took place in a 100-year-old rustic barn, illuminated with hundreds of globe string lights.

 

Could this day get any more dreamy? 

 

It seems so, as after the reception, the newly married pair had a surprise for their guests.

 

They performed a Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers–style tap dance choreographed to Moby’s In My Heart.

 

“I doubt we completely pulled off the modern-day version of Fred and Ginger, but we had fun, and our family and friends seemed to enjoy it.''

 

Congratulations to the gorgeous couple - we wish them a lifetime of happiness together.
