Carrie Underwood and Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher tied the knot on Saturday at the Ritz-Carlton, Reynolds Plantation, a resort near Oconee National Forest in Greensboro, Georgia, according to CMT News.
It had been rumored that the pair would make it official this weekend and they did as expected. They said their vows under a tent in front of 250 family and friends, People.com reports. The service included bible readings and classical music.
Underwood wore a Chantilly lace gown by Monique Lhuillier. Her bridesmaids also wore dresses by the designer. E! Online reports that other country superstars including Tim McGraw and Faith Hill were in attendance.
“We could not feel more blessed to have found each other and to have shared this day with our friends and family that mean so much to us!” the newlyweds said in a joint statement to People that they signed as “Mike & Carrie Fisher.”
The wedding planner described the whole affair as “a spiritual expression of their love.” It reportedly cost upwards of $500,000, and security was so tight that guests weren’t even told where they were going until they boarded planes to the resort, which was booked exclusively for the event.
The couple plans to live in Nashville and Peterborough, Ontario. As for the honeymoon, when Underwood spoke to UsMagazine.com about it last month, she said that it was all up to Fisher to plan.
“That was Mike’s project,” she said. “It’s a surprise. I have no clue where we are going, which is nice. I know it will be warm, that’s about it.”
The pair got engaged in December 2009. They met in October 2008 at one of Underwood’s concerts in Toronto. Before taking home several Buckle trophies at last month’s CMT Awards , she told Us, “No matter what happens, I go home a winner. I have the biggest prize, the guy sitting next to me. Win or lose, he is proud of me. Of course, it’s nice to share the good times too!”
