Tenpenny, 33, and Patrick, 35, who recently dropped their collaboration “My Left Hand,” got married on Sunday (Oct. 23), exchanging vows on a friend’s farm in Goodlettsville, Tenn, according to a PEOPLE exclusive.
Before saying their “I Dos,” Patrick took to Instagram to share her wedding day checklist with her nearly 100k followers. She included two photos in her post – the first showing her and her country singer hubby holding up a marriage certificate. The second photo has the pair posing with a friend and a bottle of liquor.
“Marriage license ☑️ @angelsenvy whiskey ☑️… we’re officially ready to get hitched!” Patrick captioned the post. “Thank you @kybourbonmaker for the hospitality and top-shelf whiskey today!”
Before heading down the aisle, the pair also took a moment to reflect on the ingredients needed for a successful relationship.
“Trust, respect, [and] never stop flirting or dating each other [keep our relationship strong],” they told the outlet. “Fight for each other, not with each other.”
Tenpenny and Patrick’s rustic-style fall wedding appeared to be a perfect day complete with personal, family-oriented details, such as a lucky horseshoe crafted by Patrick’s dad’s foundry and a passed-down cake topper that her grandparents’ used for their wedding. Patrick also got the pick of the boutonnieres, which were made with bird feathers she gathered herself.
The couple also exchanged nuptials on an altar built by Patrick’s dad while Tenpenny’s longtime family friend and high school football coach, Scott Tillman, officiated the wedding.
And, although it’s a common tradition to have the bride and groom refrain from seeing each other until they walk down the aisle, Tenpenny and Patrick opted to go a different route. They chose to get an early glimpse of each other dressed in their wedding attire. For her wedding day, Patrick wore a white Rue De Seine gown paired with snakeskin-style Lucchese boots. Tenpenny, meanwhile, looked dapper in a green blazer and a dark-wash pair of blue jeans.
Both artists shared the same photo from their wedding day on their respective Instagram pages, including the sweet caption, “I can’t wait to spend forever with you.”
In the picture, Tenpenny dips his forever bride and plants a kiss on her lips, as she holds the train of her dress with her free hand.
A black-and-white snapshot of the wedding uploaded to Patrick’s Instagram page shows the lovebirds sharing a dance, while another image finds them walking arm-in-arm.
“Marry the man who makes you smile like this 🖤 #tenpennygetsadime,” Patrick writes, alongside the breathtaking duet of pictures.
Aside from sharing images of them together, Patrick and Tenpenny also shined a light on their unique wedding arrangements, which included a feather-decorated vanilla bourbon wedding cake, velvet blue napkins with amber-colored glasses, and Happenstance Whiskey, from a woman-owned Nashville-based company.
“A few behind-the-scenes look of our dream wedding. Thank you to everyone who helped make our day so perfect 🖤,” the caption reads alongside the series of photos shown on their respective social media pages.
Tenpenny and Patrick initially met years ago at a popular Nashville bar called Losers bar & grill. They returned to the establishment in November of 2021, where Tenpenny got down on a knee. Despite having a speech planned, Tenpenny ended up proposing in a way that was more on-the-fly, which resulted in both parties shedding plenty of happy tears.
“I had a whole speech planned and it disappeared [in the moment]. I wasn’t able to say everything I wanted to,” Tenpenny recalled. “I was nervous — and relieved. She was crying, I was crying. All I wanted was to hear her say yes!”
“I also thought there would be all these things I would have said,” Patrick added. “And all I could get out was ‘Yes!’ Then we both awkwardly stumbled around trying to get the ring on my finger.”
