Take note, future grooms: When your wedding day style has the possibility of rivaling that of your bride's — ask for permission first, just as newly-married Tyler Hubbard, rocker of Florida Georgia Line, did before donning a man-bun for his recent wedding to Hayley Stommel.
"I wasn't going to pull my hair up into a man bun without asking Hayley first!" the country singer told People of his wedding day up-do. The good news? The bride was all for it. "I loved it!" said Stommel. "It took my breath away to see him standing there with his hair pulled back. He looked amazing, so handsome."
The two said "I do" last week in Trail Creek Cabin in Sun Valley, Idaho, with the bride wearing formfitting, lace Monique Lhuillier gown with a low back and the groom in an all-white ensemble of his own. Hubbard, who described his look as "classy rockstar action," knew a classic tux wouldn't cut it.
"We just wanted to keep it who I was, but also just casual and not over the top," said Hubbard. "It needed to represent me and also be comfortable and it did," he said of the white jeans and top paired with a white leather Smart Range vest his stylist, Gina Ketchum, found for him in London. And, unlike his wedding-day man bun, Hubbard's outfit was a total surprise to the bride. "If she won't show me hers, I'm not showing her mine," he said.
The couple's all-white outfits paired perfectly with their neutral color palette and outdoor ceremony, which was set against the mountains where Idaho-native Stommel grew up skiing. In addition to dining on steak and salmon under a sky of party lights, guests noshed on slices of the couple's gorgeous wedding cake: the four-tiered European almond confection was made with alternating thin layers of mascarpone and homemade raspberry jam and then covered in Italian white butter cream frosting, People reports. And as a nod to the gorgeous greenery, the florist placed a small flower arrangement in between the second and third tiers.
"[Hayley] wanted something really simple and she wanted it tall," Cristina Ceccatelli Cook, owner of Cristina's Restaurant, said of the cake she created for the reception. "Sun Valley has beautiful, natural scenery. You don't need to dress it up too much, and I think that's what they tried to do, to keep that natural look."
