It’s official! Carly Pearce and Michale Ray are man and wife.
According to People, the couple tied the knot in front of 100 family and friends at a Drakewood Farms in Nashville, TN., which according to their website includes 40 acres of rolling farmland, 1850 antebellum mansion with two bridal dressing rooms, three barns, a stunning 4,000 sq. ft pavilion and grooms cottage.
Carly and Michael exchanged their own vows, which they each wrote themselves. The ceremony was officiated by Opry announcer Bill Cody with country singer Lindsay Ell in attendance.
“Knowing without a shadow of a doubt that I didn’t settle for something less than truly the person that I think was made for me is something that I am thankful for,” Carly told People.
“No matter what, I have her in my corner,” Micahel said. “No matter what, she has me in her corner. I tell her, you’re never going to face anything alone. Never will there be anything in life that you don’t look over and I’m standing beside you.”
Michael was decked out in a black suit and open collared shirt, while Carly opted for Samantha Sleeper design that included a lace top with full-length sleeves, and a short pencil skirt.
Carly and Michael announced their engagement in December of 2018 while away on vacation in Tulum. They each took to Instagram to share the news of their official coupling.
“Earlier this week, the man of my dreams got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. All in one simple “yes”, I said “yes” to love, “yes” to peace, “yes” to faithfulness, “yes” to respect, “yes” to kindness, “yes” to trust, “yes” to patience and “yes” to never settling,” Carly wrote in her post.
Michael added, ““Carly, you make it all make sense, every step of my life good and bad was leading me to you. You are the biggest blessing I have and will ever receive. You are my best friend, my partner in crime, my workout, grilled chicken, wine drinking classic country Opry loving, Nashville palace hanging, Publix grocery shopping, this is us watching, living room late night dancing, laugh until we cry soul mate.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
