It's a match made in country music heaven—CMT host Katie Cook is married to guitarist and songwriter Adam Shoenfeld!

According to People, the duo tied the knot on December 17, 2017, in front of 300 guests, in none other than Music City itself: downtown Nashville. They chose the uppermost floor of the FGL House, which was established by country band Florida Georgia Line, to host their nuptials. White Christmas trees and holiday decorations adorned the venue, contributing to the newlywed's dreamy winter wedding theme. Cook's friend, Laura Lacey, planned the ceremony, and Vance Nichols was in charge of the decor.

Cook, frontwoman of the former band Reno, stole the show with a stunning Vera Wang trumpet wedding dress complete with a strapless neckline, pretty illusion sleeves, and an ornately ruffled skirt. She topped off her bridal look with simple dangly earrings and a decorative barrette.

The duo, who has been together for three years, incorporated their families into the wedding with their three children from former relationships standing beside them as they said their "I do's." Cook's daughter, Daisy Rocket, and Shoenfeld's son, Hawke, both 11, served as ring bearers.

FGL House catered the event, providing both vegetarian and vegan options, and the lovebirds enjoyed a tiered cake from Rachel Make My Cake. During the reception, Shoenfeld's daughter, Sophia, 14, played the piano and sang a tearjerking rendition of "At Last" for the couple's first dance. Talk about a musically inclined family! Cook and Shoenfeld also treated their guests to Nashville-themed goodie bags as wedding favors, filled with a bottle of Big Machine Vodka (their liquor of choice), Goo-Goo Cluster candy, and a CD with two songs from Sunkat, the couple's country-rock collaboration.

"Adam makes my life better in every possible way; he always has my back and is my biggest supporter," Cook gushed to People about her new husband. "I am extremely proud to be by his side." She's also excited about their new family. "[Shoenfeld] is a loving stepfather to my Daisy and my whole family adores him. My stepchildren, Sophia and Hawke, are so lovely and talented; my heart is full when we are all together," she added.

Shoenfeld concurred, calling Cook his "soul mate," and raving about their future as husband and wife.

"Our forties and fifties are going to make our twenties and thirties look boring!" he said. "I know that the rest of our life together is going to be an adventure. It’s on."

The couple also received well-wishes from Megan Barry, Nashville's mayor, who happened to drive by the reception right as Cook and Shoenfeld were leaving. If that's not good luck, we don't know what is! They drove off in a Waylon Jennings 1960s limo from Matchless Transportation to head out to their honeymoon in Antigua.

Congratulations to Katie Cook and Adam Shoenfeld, and may they have many happy music-filled years together!
