RaeLynn Marries Joshua Davis in Nashville
RaeLynn married her longtime love, Joshua Davis, in a ceremony in Nashville on Saturday (Feb. 27).
Us Weekly reports the rising country singer exchanged vows with Davis at a friend’s barn in front of more than 300 guests, wearing a white emebellished halter top wedding gown.
“My main thing was I just wanted everybody to have a good time, you know,” she tells the magazine. “I wanted to make sure we had the best DJ in town. And I love table decorations. I want every table to have its own little thing. So that’s my main thing is I just want to create a cool atmosphere.”
The couple went with a “whimsical woodland theme” for the wedding. RaeLynn and her 17 bridesmaids all wore white, while Davis’ groomsmen wore three-piece charcoal gray suits.
The “For a Boy” singer has known Davis — who is a former pitcher in the Chicago Cubs’ minor league system — since she was 18 years old. The couple got engaged in October of 2015 at Nashville’s Belmont University after a romantic scavenger hunt.
“He makes me better at everything I do,” the 21-year-old tells Us. “I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him. Did that really just happen? Time to workout really hard to look good in that white dress.”
The 21-year-old first came to public attention when she competed on The Voice under Blake Shelton’s tutelage. She remained friends with both Shelton and Miranda Lambert after their split. She said in December that they’d both given her wedding advice.
“It’s all about, when you find the right person, you’ve gotta kind of go with it, and they’ve been both so supportive,” she reveals.
She gushed to Entertainment Tonight about her wedding plans in December, saying, “It’s been awesome — I finally got my colors picked out, got my wedding dress picked out. It’s going to be a very winter, whimsical theme.”
She was particularly excited about her dress.
“It’s very ‘me,’” she said. “It’s a big dress; it’s not like, mermaid fit. And I didn’t really want sleeveless. I did more of like a sleeve thing, and it’s just so beautiful. The back is my favorite.”
