Hilary Duff was a vision in her dream wedding dress this past weekend.
The Younger actress, 32, quietly tied the knot with music producer Matthew Koma, 32, at their home over the weekend. It was a small, low-key affair with only family and close friends.
According to an inside source, the ceremony began at sunset. “They got married inside the house,” while “the reception was in a white tent in the backyard.”
Matthew looked handsome, wearing a traditional black suit with a bow tie. However, it was Hilary’s breathtaking custom Jenny Packham wedding gown that stole the show.
Hilary herself shared the first glimpse of her gorgeous wedding dress on Instagram a day after their L.A. ceremony.
Simply captioned, “This,” the portrait shows the newlyweds posed in front of a Jeep Grand Wagoneer adorned with flowers and tin cans, and “Just married” written on the window. Matthew also shared the same photo, writing, “for the rest of forever… 12.21.19.”

The dress, which was custom-made in London by Jenny Packham, is elegant, modern, and completely original. And while the dress appears simple and streamlined at first glance, there is no shortage of elegant details.
Made of stretch Georgette crêpe fabric, the dress is lightweight and “fits like a glove,” said Hilary. “There’s a very modern shoulder. When we were coming up with the design, it was important to me that it was striking but simple,” she says of the dress design, adding, “I couldn’t imagine wearing a big fluffy dress.”
The dramatic shoulders are what designer Jenny Packham calls “a saddle shoulder pad,” because the shape dips down and then comes back up at the edge. The cape-like sleeves cascade into a train, and there are a hundred buttons down the back.
But the added touch of personal embroidery may be Hilary’s favorite detail of the dress.
“There’s a sweet little embroidery with our initials,” Hilary said. “There’s a ‘M’ and an ‘H’ and then the date of our wedding.” She also included the initials for the couple’s children, Luca and Banks, “the biggest part of our life.”
