“All On Me” singer Devin Dawson and singer/songwriter Leah Sykes are married!

The couple tied the knot on Sunday (Oct. 27) at the historic Carnton plantation house and museum in Franklin, Tenn., People confirms.

Exchanging hand-written vows as well as traditional wedding vows, Dawson and Sykes said “I do” in front of 200 guests and were married by Sykes’ older brother, Jacob.

Selecting the picturesque venue, which played a major role in the Civil War in 1864, was a no-brainer for the singer/songwriters.

“The property has a perfect set up for a fall wedding with the garden, foliage and a 250-year-old oak tree serving as an incredibly gorgeous and natural altar,” Dawson and Sykes told People prior to their big day.

After exchanging vows, the couple celebrated their love of music and their faith by singing a worship song called” “How Deep the Father’s Love.” Dawson predicted that their performance may bring out a few tears. “We could flood the Cumberland [River in Tennessee] with the tears of joy and love that will fall,” he said.

The newlyweds shared their first dance to “Wouldn’t Mean a Thing” by Bruno Major and plan to take a “mini moon” at East Tennessee’s Blackberry Farm before enjoying a proper honeymoon in early 2020.

Devin Dawson and Leah Sykes initially met while attending Belmont University in Nashville. They got engaged in March of 2019 while celebrating their second anniversary as a couple on a trip to San Francisco.
