Philip Schneider is the current husband of Million Baby Dollar star, Hilary Swank.
Philip and Hilary are Together Since Mid-2014
Philip Schneider and Hilary Swank met for the first time in 2014 through a blind date set up by his best friend actor, Misha Collins‘ wife, Vicki (Victoria Vantoch). They started dating soon after and have been together ever since.
It was a blind date set up by actor Misha Collins’s wife, Vicki, and another close friend, Jean. We met at 10:00 a.m. and parted ways at 11:00 p.m. We clearly enjoyed our time!
Schneider and Swank made one of their first appearances at the 2017 Wimbledon Championships.
The duo dated for a year and a half before getting engaged privately in 2016 and marrying two years later in August 2018.
Schneider and Swank’s Engagement
Philip Schneider and the Boys Don’t Cry alum Hilary Swank got engaged privately in 2016. The pair were on a vacation in Colorado when the former dropped to his knee in front of a waterfall they had stumbled upon deep in the mountains and proposed.
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!
What about Their Marriage?
Hilary and Philip got married on August 18, 2018, at Santa Lucia Preserve near their home in California. The couple wanted to wed close to their home because of the former’s father. Swank’s dad, who passed away in October 2021, had received a lung transplant in 2015 and thus, couldn’t fly.
We found what we were looking for at the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California. It’s a stunning private community surrounded by 20,000 acres of conservancy and an intimate redwood grove populated with trees that are over 800 years old.
Hilary’s dad, Stephen Michael Swank, walked her down the aisle to Ludovico Einaudi’s Two Sunsets. One of her close friends, Dr. Reverend Michael Beckwith, officiated their wedding. The bride’s best friend and maid of honor, Mariska Hargitay, and Philip’s best man, Phil, stood by the groom’s side. Meanwhile, the groom’s best friend, Misha Collins read a poem he wrote for the couple.
Philip and I and our guests experienced an incredibly soulful, stirring homily and blessing by Reverend Beckwith. It was timeless. There’s just no other way to describe it.
After the nuptials, Hilary showed gratitude to her husband and to all the people who were in attendance.
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 Swank always loved Elie Saab’s designs and she wanted to have a wedding dress custom-made for her. Her dress constituted “25 meters of Chantilly lace, 8 meters of silk chiffon, and 6 meters of organza silk.”
The wedding gown took well over 150 hours to create with 70 hours focused exclusively on embroidery. Three seamstresses, two Petites mains, one patternmaker, and the head of the atelier worked together to complete the dress.
I’ve loved Elie Saab for years and was thrilled to have him design my dress. 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 expectation. It was everything I imagined and more.
