The Cadillac Three’s Neil Mason is a married man. The drummer married his longtime girlfriend Chelsea Eager at Eager’s parent’s hotel, Gruene Mansion Inn Bed & Breakfast, in New Braunfels, Texas on Saturday (1/4), PEOPLE reports.
The celebration was a family affair for the couple as all of the vendors were close family friends of Eager.
“We are getting married at her parents’ place, she chose a wedding dress from a local boutique, the catering is being done by her parents’ best friends and neighbors’ local restaurants, her childhood best friend Kortni’s company is coordinating the flowers, rings are from local jeweler Ernesto’s and the event planners (Terrell from Sara Walker Events) are out of San Antonio,” Mason shared with the publication.

The couple exchanged traditional vows in front of 40 guests, which included Mason’s bandmates Jaren Johnston and Kelby Ray, plus Cubs baseball player Tony Kemp and singer/songwriter Austin Jenckes. They were married by Eager’s dad.
Mason and Eager first met five-and-a-half years ago through mutual friends. They knew right from the start of their first date that they had found “the one.”
“We talked about it on our first date standing on top of the Tootsies Rooftop Bar in downtown Nashville.”
To kick off their life as a married couple, the two will jet off for a honeymoon in Tulum, Mexico.
“With Neil on the road the majority of the year we knew we wanted somewhere quiet and private,” said Eager. “Being able to hang out with no distractions is very important so we really get to reconnect and be best friends and lovers. Tulum is a quick direct flight from Austin and then we just have a short boat ride to our island! I am definitely most excited about the privacy and downtime.”
The Cadillac Three’s new album, Country Fuzz, is scheduled for release on February 7.
