Country stars Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd are married!
According to E! News, Morris, 27, and Hurd, 31, tied the knot on Saturday in Nashville, Tennessee.
Two days after the celebration, both Morris and Hurd shared some first-look photos of their big day on their Instagram accounts. Morris wore a short, V-neck Cavanagh Baker dress that included floral appliques on the body and a billowing train. Morris posted a photo of the two kissing during the ceremony with the caption, "My last turn home," which paid homage to the Tim McGraw song the couple co-wrote together in 2013 when they first met.
Hurd shared a black and white photo of the two in an intimate embrace shortly after.
The Nashville-based designer drew inspiration from Morris' mother Kellie's vintage wedding dress from her 1989 wedding, giving the gown a more updated look with a short skirt and modern details. Baker ordered couture lace from Spain and handmade crystal straps from India that took over a month to design and create. The train included over 20 layers of tulle, which she detached later when she made her way to the dance floor.
“She was a badass and had this short wedding dress, so I sent it to this designer that I love,” Morris told People of her mother. “I was like, ‘If we can do a modern version of my mom’s wedding dress just dreaming something up really cool but still throwback with her vibe, I would love to make that happen.’ So I’m just waiting to get sketches back but I know it’ll be perfect."
The groom wore a Joseph Abboud custom cobalt blue shawl collar tuxedo for the big day, complete with a personalized monogrammed message from Morris on the inside of the suit, reading "My last turn home."
The two prepped for their romantic ceremony for months. A day before their wedding, Hurd released his new song "Diamonds or Twine."
"I played this song for Maren the night we got engaged," he said in a statement. "We were at the lake in Michigan, on the dock, and I will never forget that moment."
Some of the song's lyrics are sang: "You know when you know / You hear that all your life / Well whoever they are / Turns out they were right / The sunshine, the good times / Yeah we've got a few behind us / But when the bad times come / I ain't gonna run."
Morris posted a photo earlier this week of her and her now-husband on Instagram with the caption, "Writing vows, feeling sentimental AF and dreaming of this guy being my freaking husband in a few days."
In late January, the couple revealed to People all of the necessities that they wanted to include in their big celebration. “Tequila!” Hurd responded. The bride agreed, adding, “Yeah, that’s my go-to—to calm the nerves, energize. Then great music, great food, great people. You can’t really go wrong with those pillars.” No complaints here!
Another nuptial necessity for Hurd? An “Excellent fiancé!” tops his list.
Laughing, Morris again agreed, adding: “Excellent fiancé, dog, tacos—yeah, it’s gonna be a reflection of us and our tastes!”
The newlyweds met in Nashville back in 2013, when they cowrote a song together for Tim McGraw. Their working relationship eventually turned into a romance, making themselves an official couple in 2016.
Congrats to the happy couple! Or shall we say, yeehaw!
