It’s official – Carly Pearce and Michael Ray are husband and wife.
The couple said “I do” on Sunday (Oct. 6) on a farm just outside of Nashville, People confirms.
Pearce and Ray’s wedding took place at Drakewood Farm, about 15 miles North of Music City. Though the couple planned to host the ceremony outdoors, the weather, unfortunately, did not cooperate so they moved it inside to one of the property’s beautiful barns.
Exchanging vows they wrote themselves in front of 100 guests, the ceremony was officiated by Grand Ole Opry announcer Bill Cody.
“It just feels special,” Pearce shared with People, “because it’s kind of all-encompassing of country music and the Opry and our story. And his voice is just so sweet.”
The publication reports the bride donned a unique gown featuring a “high neckline, full-length sleeves, and a short pencil skirt cloaked in a full-length piece of sheer lace.” It was designed by Samantha Sleeper.
As for the guest list, the couple kept it pretty low-key, mainly inviting family and friends to witness their nuptials. Lindsay Ell was in attendance, as was Jake Owen, who sang “Made For You” as the couple shared their first dance.
The honeymoon will have to wait as both Pearce and Ray are in busy seasons of their respective country music careers. They plan to head South come December.
“We started talking about the honeymoon and he said, ‘What’s your dream vacation?’” Pearce explained. “And I said, ‘I want to stay in one of those over-water bungalows.’ So, we’re getting an over-water bungalow in Jamaica.”
