A huge congratulations are in order! A famous country singer and his girlfriend get married after being together for six years.
Country star Scotty McCreery and Gabi Dugal finally tied the knot over the weekend. The two got married in North Carolina on Saturday.
The intimate wedding was held up in the mountains with close friends and family.
“We’ve been dating six years and have known each other our whole lives," the "American Idol" winner told "People." "That kind of story doesn’t happen too often nowadays."
McCreery admits that when he planned on proposing to Dugal, he said he "completely screwed it up." He was planning on taking his girlfriend, who is a nurse at Duke University Hospital, to a scenic spot they tend to frequent. It is located near Grandfather Mountain about 200 miles northwest of Garner, their hometown.
“We were looking for a waterfall about two or three years ago and I completely screwed up and got us lost,” McCreery recalls. “And I was like, well, the next trail map, we’re just gonna see where it takes us, and we got out and then came up to these beautiful cliffs. Now it’s kind of our spot every time we go to the mountains.”
“It did not work out as planned,” he continues, “but it probably worked out even better.”
The wedding ceremony was officiated by McCreery's childhood pastor, and their first dance as husband and wife was to Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love." Their guests enjoyed Cajun-style dishes, steak, and pasta. Rather than a traditional wedding cake, they newlyweds opted into serving a variety of pies.
We are so excited for them! Will you join us in congratulating the happy couple? In other news, Prince William finds out his father's secret that he kept from Princess Diana leaving him and Harry in tears.
