Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma are really cute as husband and wife. The Disney actress and Koma wed the weekend before Christmas in a low-key ceremony at home, and to round out the holidays, the couple shared a series of intimate, new photos from their nuptials on Thursday, December 26.
Duff posted the first photo from her wedding the day after she married Koma on December 21. “This,” she captioned the photo. The first reveal showed Duff in a long-sleeve, satin gown by Jenny Packham with an open back and buttons down the train. The actress chose cape-like sleeves to give her ensemble a dramatic effect against Koma’s sleek attire. The groom added on his account, “For the rest of forever… 12.21.19.”
Several days later, the pair received additional selects from their wedding photographer, including images of their kids, who were involved in the nuptials. “The most magical day into night with the one that I love,” Duff noted alongside a candid pic with her husband.
The groom walked down the aisle with Luca Comrie, Duff’s son with ex-husband Mike Comrie, while the bride held their baby girl Blair as she made her way to Koma. “Little girl cried up until we opened the front door and she knew we were walking towards her daddy and bruvvah,” she revealed.
A sweet family photo showed the four huddled outside before a floral backdrop. “Truly sad this day went by so quickly,” Duff added.
Together, the couple tapped a team of top professionals to help pull off the secret ceremony. Celebrity wedding planner Yifat Oren of Oren Co planned the nuptials, while photographer Harper Smith captured the event. Celeb hairstylist Nikki Lee was tasked with Duff’s gorgeous updo, while makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan crafted a glam makeup look on her client.
“The wedding was at her house. It was small and low-key. Only family and close friends,” a source told People magazine. “The ceremony started at sunset and they got married inside the house. When the ceremony was over, guests cheered. The reception was in a white tent in the backyard.”
Mandy Moore’s husband Taylor Goldsmith performed at the reception. “Thank you so much @hilaryduff for being there on such an important day for @taylordawesgoldsmith and I,” Koma joked on his account.
JustJared was first to report the news with Koma later confirming it on E! News. The outlet posted a marriage speculation update and Koma replied with the caption, “wife.” Of course it was a family affair for Duff, who walked down the aisle for the second time. A source told People that her sister, actress Haylie Duff, was also “very involved in the wedding prep too” and that the siblings are “very close.” The kids were also very much involved in the nuptials.
The bride took to Instagram Stories too to reveal more wedding weekend snaps, including a loved-up pic with her new husband a day after the nuptials took place. In the mirror selfie, Koma embraces Duff as they both show off their new rings.

The couple confirmed the engagement in May. “I came home from work on a random Tuesday, and he was like ‘Let’s go for a walk. Let’s go check out this park,’” the Younger actress shared about a month later. “We were living in Williamsburg and I was like ‘I’m so tired.’ We just started [watching] Game of Thrones, and I just wanted to eat dinner in bed and watch Game of Thrones.”
Koma, however, insisted they go for a walk in their Brooklyn neighborhood. “He presents me with this book that he said he’s been working on for a while,” Duff added. “He’s like, ‘It’s our story.’”
Inside the book was a series of illustrations of the couple. “He was like, ‘We are going to forget things along the way so we need to constantly fill this out so our kids can know our story,’” she continued. And inside the book was a hidden compartment that contained her ring.
“It was so sweet. It was so sweet,” she gushed in June. “And he got down on one knee and he’s like, ‘I forgot everything I’m supposed to say, but you’re my best friend.’ It was so sweet.”
