Hilary and Edward chose vintage-inspired attire for their wedding looks. Hilary wore a 1940's inspired ivory satin sheath gown with a crew neck neckline decorated with a gathered satin rose accent. Edward donned a classic three-piece gray suit, ditching the suit coat for the reception for a more casual look.
