Country star HARDY and his bride, Caleigh Ryan, are enjoying life as newlyweds. They recently took to social media to share a look into their romantic honeymoon in Thailand.
“Trip of a lifetime. Blessed to have such an amazing honeymoon with the most amazing person,” HARDY wrote in his post that showcases photos of their adventures, which included meeting elephants, shopping from traditional floating markets, enjoying their meals with a view and more.
Ryan also captured plenty of moments where they found themselves smiling from ear to ear as they became immersed in the local culture.
Her caption read, “WE’RE BACK!!!!!! 🇹🇭Thailand gave us the best honeymoon we could have ever asked for:)”
The couple officially tied the knot on Saturday (Oct. 29) surrounded by 350 of their friends and family at Diamond Creek Farms in Nashville, Tennessee.
“I could have invited a lot more people, but we wanted people there that know us and love us,” Hardy told PEOPLE.
Several country stars were spotted as guests of the celebration including Dierks Bentley, Brantley Gilbert, Lauren Alaina, Devin Dawson, Mitchell Tenpenny, Lindsay Ell, Travis Denning, RaeLynn, ERNEST, Renee Blair, Jameson Rodgers, Morgan Wallen and more.
For their ceremony, Ryan wore an elegant custom dress that she designed with Naama & Anat and Haute Brida, while HARDy dressed in a suit by STITCHED in Las Vegas and a bow tie to complete the look.
“We go to a lot of awards shows where you get to wear beautiful dresses, so it really was about finding my wedding dress versus just another beautiful dress,” Ryan explained to the outlet. “That was my biggest obstacle. So I ended up creating a dress from scratch.”
Every aspect of the wedding was well-thought-out to reflect their deep love for one another. The couple made sure to also implement plenty of family ties. Ryan wore her grandma’s lucky penny for her “something borrowed” and her late great-aunt Rosie’s aquamarine ring for her “something blue,” while HARDY’s outfit included custom gold cuff links from his late great-uncle.
The couple got engaged in August of 2021 at the Lyric Theatre in Oxford, Mississippi.
“I’m not her boyfriend anymore,” HARDY captioned a photo showcasing the moment he got down on one knee to propose.
The lovebirds then got the chance to celebrate their engagement in February with an elaborate party featuring gorgeous decorations from jaw-dropping balloon displays to elegant floral arrangements, a custom bar and even a cotton candy machine.
“My eyeballs will probably have permanent damage from staring at my phone so much these past few days, but how can I help myself when I get to relive the magic that was created for our engagement party?” Caleigh wrote alongside photos from the event. “…The thought and detail incorporated into the design and setup make my heart want to explode with joy.”
HARDY and Ryan recently made their first appearance as husband and wife at the 2022 CMA Awards where Ryan turned heads in a floor-length sleeveless white dress with a rhinestone choker, and HARDY sported ripped black denim jeans, a gray Henley shirt, and black blazer.
In addition to celebrating this new chapter with his wife, HARDY is also preparing to release his sophomore album, the mockingbird & THE CROW, on Jan. 20, 2023. He will then embark on his headlining tour, which kicks off on Feb. 16.
