It’s a celebratory day for country music star Brett Young and his beautiful wife Taylor Mills, who are celebrating their one year and one month anniversary.

Mills, who is currently pregnant with the couple’s first child, took to Instagram on Sept. 10, to reveal that she and Young eloped on Aug. 10, 2018, nearly three months before their big, publicized wedding day at the Bighorn Golf Club in Palm Desert, California. She also shared some words of nostalgia, while recalling her and the country crooner’s private event.

“Reminiscing about 8.10.18, which will forever be one of the happiest and most special days of my life,” Mills sweetly wrote, alongside a series of videos and photos featuring the happily married couple on their special day. “8.10.18 was the day I legally married my soulmate. We decided not to tell anyone we were married before our wedding day  [with the exception of my sister because she’s the best secret keeper.] We didn’t want to take away from our wedding ceremony in November.”

Mills went onto describe the memorable moments leading up to her and Young obtaining their marriage license at Nashville’s Rhinestone Wedding Chapel. She even highlighted an ironic Elvis Presley moment that occurred shortly after the two exchanged vows.

“Brett was home from the road for one day. We walked from our house down the street to [the chapel] on music row and just like that, a sweet little man married us,” she captioned. “We had passed this funny little chapel many, many times and never did I think I would get married there one day. After we got engaged we talked about getting legally married soon after. So of course we thought that getting married at the little chapel on music row was only fitting instead of at the courthouse. On 8.10.18, now married we left the Rhinestone Wedding Chapel hand in hand and realized that right next door was a poster commemorating Brett’s current No. 1 song, ‘Mercy.’ It was a sign [no pun intended.] It was perfect.”

Before closing out her message, Mills thanked Young for trusting her with his heart.

“I love you and I’m so blessed to be your wife and your forever. You fill my heart with so much love and my life with so much happiness. 1 year down, a lifetime to go. #”ItWasAPrettyFunDay” #ForeverYoungT+B ? ?????,” she wrote.

Mills and Young met more than a decade ago in Arizona before getting engaged in February of 2018. The “Mercy” singer got down on one knee to ask for his bride’s hand in marriage in Oxford, Mississippi – the home of his alma mater Ole Miss. Congratulations to the happy couple!
