Hilary Swank Marries boyfriend Philip Schneider in the Redwoods

Actor and producer Hilary Swank and social venture entrepreneur Philip Schneider’s love story started with a seemingly bottomless brunch that went on forever. “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.,” Hilary laughs. “We clearly enjoyed our time!”

A year and a half later, the two were getting engaged. “We don’t know why waited that long!” Hilary admits. The setting was Colorado, where they were on vacation, and it was 2016. “We stumbled upon a beautiful sanctuary deep in the mountains,” Hilary remembers. “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!”
