Bobby Bones is a married man! 

The nationally-syndicated radio host, American Idol mentor and Breaking Bobby Bones star wed Caitlin Parker on Saturday (July 17) at their Middle Tennessee home, according to People

The couple exchanged vows in their backyard in an intimate ceremony that incorporated “C + B” throughout and featured gorgeous florals from Stella Rose Floral. The publication reports that the couple wrote their own vows and were married by Parker’s childhood music minister, Jeff Elkins, who is also her childhood best friend’s father. 

“I don’t have a godfather, but if I did, it would be him,” the beautiful bride told People

The couple’s dogs, Stanley and Eller, also played a part in the ceremony, walking down the aisle dressed in bow ties and pearls. Ahead of the big day, Bones joked that he wasn’t sure if the pups could “pull it off,” but it sounds like they pulled through.

Bones, who sported a custom suit and bowtie designed by Alton Lane, was joined by groomsmen including his longtime friend and tennis pro Andy Roddick, while The Bobby Bones Show‘s Amy Brown and Abby Smyers, wife of Dan + Shay’s Dan Smyers, served as two of Parker’s bridesmaids. 

According to People, it was a star-studded affair with Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen and Chuck Wicks in attendance, as well as Dan + Shay, who were on hand to perform the couple’s first dance song, Jesse and the Rippers version of The Beach Boys’ “Forever” from the hit show, Full House.

Rascal Flatts’ frontman Gary LeVox also honored the newlyweds with a performance of “Bless the Broken Road” and “Fast Cars and Freedom,” while Brooks & Dunn’s Ronnie Dunn delivered a rendition of “Neon Moon” as the couple was surprised with a light-up moon being lowered from the ceiling. 

Guests enjoyed a catered dinner from Beyond Details that included steak crab cakes, mashed potatoes and more, plus dessert from Cakes + Co. The new Mr. and Mrs. bid farewell to guests with a Sonic Drive-In pop up that served late night snacks such as Nashville chicken sliders and Bones’ personal favorite “Bobby Water,” which he and Caitlin often order at the fast food restaurant. 

Bones and Parker met in 2019 through a mutual friend and began dating several weeks later. They enjoyed a long distance relationship for a few months until March 2020 when Parker relocated from California to Nashville. They got engaged in October of 2020.
