Congratulations to Ashley Monroe and John Danks, who got married last night at Blackberry Farm in Walland, TN! Ashley and John (a Chicago White Sox pitcher) tied the knot with close friend Blake Shelton officiating the ceremony. Blake’s wife Miranda Lambert, Ashley’s fellow Pistol Annies member, was her maid of honor and singer/songwriter Jessi Alexander was a bridesmaid. John’s best man was his brother Jordan Danks and his groomsman was his father. The ceremony was small, with only family and the bridal party attending.

Ashley chose Blackberry Farm as their wedding location over a year ago. She grew up an hour away from Blackberry Farm, in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. [Earlier this week, Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock also said "I Do" there. See their wedding video and photos >>]

Ashley wore a custom-made Haute Hippe wedding gown and John wore Armani. This morning, the new bride tweeted, “I’m MARRIED!!!  whoohoo” with a photo of her wedding ring (below).
