Plenty of vows were exchanged throughout 2019 as many of country music’s biggest stars said their “I dos.” Though most of the weddings were just for family and friends, these singers couldn’t resist sharing their love with fans by posting beautiful pictures from their big days.

Check out the gorgeous country weddings of 2019:

Miranda Lambert – Country star Miranda Lambert took fans by surprise when she shared on Valentine’s Day that she tied the married Brendan McLoughlin. Though little was known about Lambert’s relationship with McLoughlin, the couple looked radiant on their big day. Lambert sported an exquisite lace wedding gown while her groom kept things classy in a simple black suit.

Jillian Jacqueline – Almost a year after getting engaged in Paris, singer-songwriter Jillian Jacqueline married her longtime boyfriend and guitarist Bryan Brown. The couple said their “I do’s” in front of their closest family and friends, and the wedding’s reception featured Jacqueline’s signature bohemian-influenced style. The country songstress was ethereal in a simple white wedding gown with a sheer cape, and Brown put a retro spin on the classic black suit look.

Chuck Wicks – After a short and sweet engagement period, Chuck Wicks and Kasi Williams, the sister of superstar Jason Aldean, tied the knot in the picturesque Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in July. The reception consisted of a precious first dance to “Can’t Help Falling In Love” and a spectacular fireworks show as the newlyweds cut the wedding cake. Williams stunned in a Galia Lahav dress while Wicks rocked a custom tux by Tom James.

Because they first met at Stagecoach in 2016, the couple decided to have a festival-themed wedding, complete with vintage rugs, teepees and neon lights. To make things even more romantic, Rich and Gadecki’s first dance was to Coldpay’s “Yellow” as it was the song the couple was listening to when they first said “I love you.”

The two exchanged their vows during a candlelit ceremony at the Homestead Manor in Tennessee, all five of Deaton’s bandmates stood by him as groomsmen. The musician wore a simple tux while his bride stunned in a Sarah Seven wedding gown with rose gold accents.

Carly Pearce & Michael Ray – Country music’s favorite power couple, Carly Pearce and Michael Ray, said their “I dos” on Oct. 6 in Nashville, Tennessee. It was an intimate wedding ceremony at Drakewood Farm, with only about 100 guests in attendance. The wedding was originally planned to take place outside, but the weather said otherwise. Thankfully, it was moved to one of the beautiful barns located on the farm, which made for an “earthy and whimsical” celebration.

Mark WystrachMidland’s Mark Wystrach was a true triple threat in 2019 after getting engaged, finding out he was going to become a father and getting married to fiancée Tyler “Ty” Haney. The couple exchanged vows at Laguna Gloria in Austin, Texas, while surrounded by just a few close friends. Wystrach looked stylish in a tan suit and matching hat, while Haney was elegant in a simple, flowy white gown.

Gabby Barrett & Cade FoehnerAmerican Idol power couple Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner finally tied the knot on Oct. 5 in Garrison, Texas. The wedding, held at Union Springs, was a more intimate ceremony with only 100 guests in attendance, which included fellow Idol alums Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Catie Turner. Barrett looked gorgeous in an exquisite Martina Liana piece, which she found early in the dress search.

Trace Adkins – After first meeting on the set of The Virginian in 2014, Trace Adkins and longtime girlfriend Victoria Pratt got hitched in New Orleans, Louisiana, on Oct. 12. The singer kept things country by matching a pair of dark wash jeans with a black blazer, while Pratt looked beautiful in a strapless white gown. A longtime friend and collaborator of Adkins, country star Blake Shelton officiated the wedding with a bright smile on his face.

Chris Lane – Following a whirlwind romance that debuted publicly in November 2018, country crooner Chris Lane and Lauren Bushnell became husband and wife on Oct. 25.

Devin Dawson – Rising star Devin Dawson finally married his girlfriend, Leah Sykes, after two-and-a-half years of dating. The couple was surrounded by family and close friends at the ceremony in Franklin, Tennessee, which Dawson’s brother Jacob performed. Because they were both songwriters, Dawson and Sykes decided to write their own wedding vows rather than go the traditional route.

Maddie MarlowMaddie & Tae’s Maddie Marlow definitely won’t be “dying from a broken heart” now that she has married Jonah Font, her high school sweetheart. The couple had a winter-themed wedding at Sycamore Farms in Arrington, Tennessee, in front of around 150 guests.
