When it came time to plan her wedding, “Nice Things” singer Mickey Guyton knew she wanted a small and intimate affair.
“I’m not a big wedding person. I’ve been to a lot of weddings. It stresses me out so much,” the Texas native told Sounds Like Nashville during a recent phone interview. “I think being in the entertainment industry and always being in the limelight, I didn’t want to do that with my relationship and I don’t do that with my relationship. So I got engaged and I was trying to figure out a way to not have to invite a whole bunch of people to a wedding.”
Guyton found her saving grace when her family decided to plan a trip to Hawaii. It was then that she pitched the idea of getting married during the trip.
“We were doing a family vacation to Kauai so I said, ‘why don’t we make this a family vacation/wedding’ because everybody had already bought their tickets. It was family only, like immediate family, brothers, sisters, sister-in-law’s and brother-in-law’s, and stuff like that,” she explained of her 23-person celebration. “There were lots of tears. It was probably one of the most stress-free weddings I’ve ever been to. It was honestly so intimate. I’ve got some funny pictures of us both crying as his little sister is talking to us. Everybody knew everybody and it was really easy to talk to everybody, even at the reception.”
The occasion was even more special for the couple as her new husband, Grant Savoy, recently discovered that he has biological family members who live on the island.
“My husband, he’s adopted, and we got in touch with a lot of his family members that they never met and lo-and-behold, he has family that lives out in Kauai, like he has origins from there.”
The couple has much to celebrate in their new life together as husband and wife, as well as rejoicing in the release Guyton’s new song, “Nice Things.”
