After their love story began during a chance meeting at Stagecoach in 2016, Tyler Rich and Sabina Gadecki are officially married. The couple wed on Friday, Sept. 20 in Murfreesboro, TN at the Saddle Woods Farm in front of 275 guests.
According to PEOPLE, the space was decorated with pampas grass, macrame, neon lights, string lights, vintage rugs, teepees and more, as a way to honor their first encounter.
“We met at a music festival and spend so much of our time together on the road at shows [and] festivals,” the newlyweds told the publication. “So we wanted to throw a festival-themed wedding so our guests could take a step into our lives for a night.”
“I was watching the show from the side of the main stage and saw Sabina with her friends down in the pit,” Rich recalled of their meeting on May 1, 2016. “So I snuck down and perfectly placed myself right in front of her group with my friend Alex, and we made sure we had such a great time in front of them that she and her friends would wish they were part of our group. Well, it barely worked — we quickly said hello and she left. I had to do the rest of my courting via an Instagram direct message.”
The personal touches didn’t end at decor as Rich and Gadecki invited a large bridal party (13 groomsmen and 12 bridesmaids) to stand by their sides. Ayesha Curry, who attended with her husband Stephen Curry, was also in the bridal party. Other guests included Jon Pardi, UFC fighter Anthony Pettis, NBA player Dorell Wright, actor Dylan Playfair, Sirius XM’s The Highway host Mary Carlisle Young, professional fisher Aaron Britt and model Ubah Hassan.
They were also married by their friend Ambrosio “Boskie” Lopez. “Nobody knows us better as individuals and as a couple at the same time,” they shared.
Their first dance was to Coldplay’s “Yellow,” which also marked a special moment in their relationship.

My Tajciu, had it not been for you, our guests would have arrived to a barn full of Polish liquor & nothing else. The way you embrace any & everything with all of your ❤️ is the most beautiful thing I have ever known. If you see passion & excitement in my eyes, you step up in sharing my joy. If you see sadness or hurt, you empathize & hold space for me to heal. The past 3 1/2 years have been a whirlwind of excitement, loving, longing and fulfillment. We know I’m an intense rager- I enjoy having a good time & instead of trying to tame me, you jump right in & match my energy. It’s kind of perfect that I’d end up marrying a sweeeet country singer & get to attend festivals for the rest of our lives. You ❤️ me wholly & truly. I’ve never known a more pure soul that gives so freely. I am blessed that God took the time to ensure our paths would cross and eternally grateful that I get to be the one special woman your love wraps its arms around. What’s unique about our relationship is we’re both dreamers. We’ve got seeds of ambition planted deep down that we instinctively nurture for one another-nothing makes us more proud than to see the fruition of the hard work and sacrifices we make. Your daily encouragement & honest support keeps me going, especially in the moments where I want to drop everything just to be by your side. You always see the bigger picture- your belief in me has given me a new level of confidence & security. You make sure I need or want for nothing. You naturally fill in my blanks and carefully pay attention to all the details. You’re my voice of reason, you help slow down my over-thinking, you’re so patient with me- in a way that only a person who truly loves me can be. And on our special day, in front of our beautiful family & friends, I got to honor the man you are and the wife I vow to be. I promise to always be reliable and a woman of my word. I promise to continue to love you unconditionally & with my whole heart. No matter how bright your star shines, I promise to always encourage you & support your dreams. I promise to dance, to sing & to be whatever I want to be. Thank you for leaving me wild, I promise I’ll never leave. I ❤️ you my husband.
“We first said ‘I love you’ when listening to ‘Yellow,’ and it’s been our song ever since,” they said. “That first dance to ‘Yellow’ in front of everyone we love so much will live forever with us.”
Now that they’ve tied the knot, the couple look forward to many happy years together as husband and wife.
“I’m so excited to build a life together from scratch,” he said. “To know that decades from now when there is an entire new generation beneath us, that it all started back in September 2019 when we kissed and said, ‘I do.’ It’s a really beautiful thing.”
The couple hopes to embark on a honeymoon shortly after Gadecki finishes filming on the movie False Positive. Rich will wrap the year with a slew of headlining tour dates, as well as opening for Jon Pardi and Brantley Gilbert.
