Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott Marries Chris Tyrrell

'We're so excited to be starting our life together,' Scott says in video message posted on band's website after Saturday wedding.

Lady Antebellum's leading lady, Hillary Scott, is now a married woman.

The singer announced that she married drummer Chris Tyrrell on Saturday in New York.

In a video message posted by the newlyweds on the Lady Antebellum website, they shared the good news. "We got married!" Scott said, with her new husband by her side. "We just wanted you to hear it from us first. We love you. We're so excited to be starting our life together and we just had to let you in on the exciting news."

The couple exchanged "I do's" in upstate New York in front of family and friends, People.com reports. Scott's Lady Antebellum bandmates, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, couldn't attend. But a rep for the band said, "They look forward to celebrating with both Hillary and Chris in the coming weeks."

Scott wore a dress designed by Vera Wang while the groom wore Ermenegildo Zegna. The twosome got engaged in July. "There is so much excitement at the beginning of a new relationship," Scott once told Billboard magazine about the song "Just a Kiss," which was inspired by her relationship with Tyrrell. "This song is about one of those times when your brain kicks in and tells your heart, 'Good things are worth waiting for.' "

In Redbook magazine, Scott said she fell for Tyrrell when she met him back in college. "We went to different schools in Tennessee and met through mutual friends," she recalled. "I thought off the bat that he was really attractive, and I could tell that he was kind. Kindness just oozes out of him. I wanted to date him when I met him! And he just wanted to play basketball."
