Maren Morris & Ryan Hurd – Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd’s Nashville wedding was brimming with little touches unique to the couple for their Nashville wedding. From tequila to Harry Potter party favors, the couple thought of everything. The most touching element of all?  Morris decided to wear a vintage-made-new dress inspired from her mother’s original gown. So sweet!

Scotty McCreery – Scotty McCreery and Gabi Dugal’s fête was a multi-day affair, complete with a Cajun shrimp boil and a rehearsal dinner. The two exchanged vows during a ceremony officiated by McCreery’s childhood pastor. They shared their first dance as husband and wife to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” Every moment of their day was captured for a new music video for McCreery’s song, “This Is It.”
