The frontman for the Josh Abbott Band, Josh Abbott, wed his longtime girlfriend Taylor Parnell in an intimate ceremony at Brazos Hall in Austin, Texas, on Sunday, July 8.

The couple, surrounded by 250 of their closest friends, shared the special day with their 14-month-old daughter, Emery Farryn,

“She was one of the flower girls. She is a huge part of our life, so it was only fitting to have her about on the big day,” Josh told PEOPLE.

“The greenery and lighting was a really important part of the theme. We wanted everyone to forget they were indoors for the night, but in the middle of a Texas summer, air conditioning is a must,” the couple tells the magazine. “The wedding colors were neutral and soothing … green from the arrangements and the champagne from the girls’ dresses.”

Josh’s bandmates Austin Davis and Preston Wait and his brother Chance were groomsmen that suited up for the big day, decked out in stylish tuxes.

At the reception friends and family dined on the couples favorite food, Barbecue from Josh’s restaurant Mac’s BBQ.
