People.com has the first wedding photo of Kellie Pickler and her new husband, songwriter Kyle Jacobs. Kellie told the magazine that as they were planning a big Nashville wedding, it became too overwhelming.
“When two people get married, it’s not about the glamour,” said Kellie to People. ”It’s about the bride and groom and God.”
Kellie and Kyle decided to elope to Antigua and had a sunset wedding. “We didn’t have anything but us and God and our minister,” she said of the ceremony, “and I can’t think of a word that can quite describe how perfect it was.”
To see photos from Kellie’s wedding, check out the new issue of People, on newsstands tomorrow. But in the meantime, here’s a cool video we found on etonline.com of Kellie trying on her beautiful Badgley Mischka gown. Congrats, Kellie & Kyle!
Designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka told People magazine’s StyleWatch they’ve been fans of Kellie’s since her American Idol days. “She has such a pure, kind spirit and we were thrilled when she asked us to design her wedding gown,” they said in a statement. “The classic ballgown silhouette is perfect for her amazing figure.”
Kellie said her favorite detail on the ivory duchess satin strapless gown — which featured crystal beaded accents on the train — was the tulle ballgown skirt, which could be removed to reveal a mini dress beneath. “I took the skirt off as soon as the ceremony was over and wore the short dress for the rest of the evening,” she said.
“I will treasure, treasure that dress,” added Kellie. “It’s such a classic, timeless gown that I would love to pass down to our children.”
