“This Is It” – Scotty McCreery is a married man!
The singer tied the knot with longtime girlfriend, Gabi Dugal, during a beautiful ceremony in North Carolina in front of 200 people, PEOPLE reports. The ceremony was officiated by McCreery’s childhood pastor and was preceded by a slew of special wedding weekend activities, including a Cajun shrimp boil on Thursday (6/14) and a rehearsal dinner on Friday (6/15).
For the reception, the bride and groom decided to keep things timeless and elegant.
“I kept it very classic,” Dugal shared with PEOPLE of their black, white and gold color scheme. “I went with greenery and white flowers, some lanterns and candle votives [for a] rustic feel. We fell in love with the mountains during the summertime [when Scotty proposed], and our [venue] is like a little castle in the woods.”
As a nod to Dugal’s Louisiana roots, the reception featured an array of Cajun dishes, as well as steak and pizza. Foregoing tradition of a wedding cake, the couple catered an assortment of pies. The couple shared their first dance as husband and wife to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
To celebrate their newlywed life, the couple will embark on a trip to Tahiti for a romantic wedding getaway.
