Former Gloriana frontwoman Rachel Reinet is a married woman.
According to People, Reinert and her longtime love Caleb Crosby exchanged vows on Saturday (Aug. 31) in Bloomington Springs, Tennessee at the Sulfur Ridge luxury treehouse. The intimate ceremony was attended by just 13 guests and did not include a bridal party or groomsmen.
“Yesterday I married my soul mate in front of our parents and siblings,” Reinert, who left Gloriana in 2016 to pursue a solo career, shared on Instagram. “It was the best day of my whole life, and I’m excited about our next chapter together as husband and wife.”
Reinert and Crosby, both 30, were married by Crosby’s father and exchanged vows they wrote themselves.
Reinert’s father was on hand to walk her down the aisle, which was something that was very important to the singer.
“I am really close with my father, so having him give me away means the world to me,” Reinert told People.
The couple first met in 2014 when Crosby landed a gig playing drums for Gloriana.
“We both intuitively knew early in our relationship that we had found ‘the one’ in each other, and that we would get married one day,” Reinert explained. “We were just extremely patient and weren’t in any rush to tie the knot. We wanted to give ourselves enough time to really learn/know each other and grow stronger together as a couple.”
They got engaged earlier this year while vacationing on Tybee Island in Georgia.
Following their intimate wedding, the newlyweds will soon jet off to Chable Maroma resort in Riviera Maya for a Mexican honeymoon.
