Alexandra Macon of Vogue detailed the joys for us.
Hilary wore a white lace and embroidered dress by Ellie Saab Couture for her fairytale ceremony. Mariska Hargitay served as her maid of honour while fellow actor and Supernatural star Misha Collins were amongst the guests.
The gown comprised of 25 meters of Chantilly lace, eight meters of silk chiffon, furthermore six meters of organza silk. It took 150 hours to create with 70 hours of that focused exclusively on embroidery. Seven people made the dress, including three seamstresses, two petites mains, one patternmaker, and above all, the head of the atelier. “I have loved Elie Saab for years and was thrilled he designed my dress,” Hilary says. “I wanted something romantic that felt as timeless as the redwood grove where we were to be married, and he consequently delivered. Designing something that far surpassed my greatest expectations, as a result it was certainly everything I imagined and more.”
Of the setting, most noteworthy, “It was timeless. There is just no other way to describe it.” explained Hilary. The couple said their vows in intimate redwood grove populated with trees that are over 800 years old.
