Hallie Ray donned a simple, yet gorgeous white gown with a train and a traditional veil, while Parker sported a tux and bow tie.
After exchanging vows in the chapel, the bride, groom and their guests enjoyed a meal in the manor.
The morning after the wedding, the newlyweds returned to social media with a selfie in a vehicle captioned, “The McCollum’s.” They also shared a photo of their new wedding rings via Instagram stories.
Parker’s unique ring is gold, shaped like a horseshoe and features nine diamonds.
According to social media posts from some of their wedding guests, the reception featured massive marquee letters that spelled out their last name, a six tier cake on acrylic stands, elegant white rose decor, and more.
McCollum previously revealed that he wanted to share their first dance to George Strait’s classic hit, “I Cross My Heart,” however, it’s unclear what song the couple danced to during their reception.
In a new post shared by the Bride, the newlyweds appear to be celebrating their nuptials on a honeymoon in a tropical destination.
McCollum proposed to Hallie Ray Light on Thursday, July 1, 2021. He revealed the news via Instagram with a photo of them sitting side-by-side in matching blue shirts, which he captioned “she said yes!”

The “To Be Loved By You” singer will return to the road on April 9 at House Of Blues Orlando.
McCollum recently earned his second consecutive No. 1 at country radio with his single “To Be Loved By You,” a song that was inspired by Hallie Ray. The song went No. 1 on both the Billboard and Mediabase Country charts.
McCollum’s song topped the charts the same week that he made his childhood dream come true as he performed for 73,000 fans at the famed Houston Rodeo at NRG Stadium in his home state of Texas.
“It’ll be years before I truly look back and realize what happened this week,” shares McCollum. “I was nervous that all my hard work and sacrifice wouldn’t be worth it in the long run. Well, after selling out RodeoHouston and having my second No. 1 I can assure you all–it was damn worth it. Every single last bit of it was worth it.”
“To Be Loved By You” follows his first-ever chart-topping hit, “Pretty Heart,” both of which appear on his major-label debut album, Gold Chain Cowboy.
