Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank got married to entrepreneur Philip Schneider recently in a beautiful ceremony in California. And the 44-year-old just dropped a throwback photo from her wedding day on Instagram in which she is wearing a white lace dress that exudes bridal elegance.
In the picture, she can be seen peeking out of a window that and the gorgeous landscape can be seen in the reflection of the window. She had also mentioned that the image was taken by Harry Connick Jr. Swank captioned the image with: "#TBT To the day after 👰🏽💍💐💫 Photo @harryconnickjr 😘." The happily married actress posted numerous pictures of the wedding and many people on the photo-sharing site could not contain their awe at how stunning she looked.
Speaking to Vogue, the 'Million Dollar Baby' star spoke in detail of the wedding that took place earlier in August. She said: "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."
Swank's father walked her down the aisle in the ceremony which happened only a few years after she put acting on hold to help him recover from a lung transplant that he had undergone. Mariska Hargitay, the actress's best friend was also present at the ceremony as a bridesmaid. According to Vogue, Swank was dressed in a sophisticated Elie Saab gown for her nuptials. She also told the fashion bible about her relationship with her husband and the romantic way that he had proposed to her in Colorado.
She 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!"
The couple had been first spotted going out together in November 2016 which was just a few months after she had called off her engagement to tennis star Ruben Torres. She had been previously married to actor Chad Lowe for a decade before they finally filed for divorce in 2007.
