Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma
The singer/actor looked ethereal in a backless Jenny Packham bridal gown.
Acclaimed for her role in Lizzy Macguire, Hilary Duff got married for the second time on 21st December 2019 to her boyfriend Matthew Koma. Hillary who has a son, Luca, from her first marriage welcomed her daughter Banks Violet Bair with Matthew in October 2018. The couple took to Instagram to share their bliss, with Hilary captioning their portrait with a simple ‘This’. Matthew shared yet another with a heartfelt ‘ For the rest of forever…12.21.19’.
The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at the star’s home in LA with just close friends and family in attendance. A source said, “The ceremony started at sunset and they got married with an intimate setting inside her house. The reception was in a white canopy in her backyard. Her sister Haylie, who Hilary is very close to, was involved in the wedding preps too.”
In keeping up with her low key nuptials and her husband’s minimalistic tastes, the actress opted for an elegant and understated bridal gown from London-based Jenny Packham, whose designs are often spotted on Kate Middleton. The ivory-crepe backless gown was custom-made with intricate detailing that included a streamlined silhouette, long cape sleeves, and 100 buttons running down the back. Hilary added a few sentimental touches to it by having her, Matthew’s and her two children’s names embroidered on the inside of the skirt. The clutch Hilary carried was also decorated with the date of the ceremony, and the shoes she wore to the reception were painted with the word “wifey” on the bottom. Matthew wore a classic tuxedo from Celine.
The couple was first linked back in 2017. After a six month split, they got back together and soon after welcomed their daughter. They announced their engagement in May 2019, with Hilary’s ring estimated to be worth $100,000, wherein Matthew popped the question to her in New York with a sweet proposal.
