On Friday, Oct. 12, Kane Brown and Katelyn Jae exchanged vows in front of 200 guests and officially became husband and wife. The couple said “I do” at the Mint Springs Farm in Franklin, TN (just south of Nashville) during a ceremony officiated by their pastor.
Brown and Jae chose to exchange vows both privately and publicly. “We decided to exchange letters to each other earlier in the day and keep the actual vows a little more traditional,” they told PEOPLE.
When it came to choosing the perfect venue the couple also decided to forego a destination wedding and marry close to home, as Brown spends most of his year out on the road.

“We wanted something here in Nashville and loved the idea of having it at home and not traveling since we are on the road so much,” the pair shared. “[The venue is] not too rural but has so many elements of nature — a huge lake, rolling hills, trees. It’s just beautiful out there.”
Shortly after exchanging vows Brown shared a photo of his new ink, a tattoo of Katelyn’s name on his hand, on his Instagram story.
The couple got engaged in 2017 over Easter weekend when Brown spontaneously proposed to his bride while watching The Amityville Horror. They’ll enjoy some R&R and a honeymoon in the weeks leading up to the release of Brown’s sophomore album, Experiment, set for release Nov. 9.
