Congratulations to Rodney Atkins and singer-songwriter singer-songwriter Rose Falcon! The couple tied the knot during an intimate beachside ceremony last Sunday, November 10 on Captiva Island, Fla. Twenty guests watched them exchange vows, including Rodney’s son Elijah, who was best man. Officiating was Charles Hutchins, founder of Holston United Methodist Home for Children, where Rodney spent his infancy before being adopted.
On Saturday, friends and family were treated to a day of fishing in the beautiful waters surrounding Captiva. Rose made many of the wedding decorations herself, including wedding programs made of CD cases and a handmade bracelet for each female guest. Male guests each received a custom hat made to match the baseball cap worn by the groom.
Rodney and Rose also took a special moment during the wedding ceremony to recognize the 51st anniversary of his parents, Allen and Margaret Atkins, presenting Margaret with a three-carat aquamarine ring (a nod to Rodney’s birthstone).
When asked about their plans after the wedding, Rodney and Rose both responded, “Our life is a honeymoon.” They are returning to Nashville and will continue on The Most Hits For The Money Tour, along with Frankie Ballard.
