Country Weddings and Engagements in 2011: Kellie Pickler and Kyle Jacobs
Kellie Pickler also got married on New Year's Day 2011. She and longtime beau Kyle Jacobs eloped to Antigua and were wed in a "small, intimate ceremony." Although they've been together since 2008, Jacobs only popped the question six months earlier, as the sun set on a Florida beach. Even the couple's closest friends were surprised to hear the news. Until the big day, they had been planning a glamorous Nashville wedding for later in 2011. “We didn’t have anything but us and God and our minister,” the singer tells People.
