Bobby Bones is now a married man as the entertainment host exchanged vows with fiancée Caitlin Parker during an intimate ceremony at home on Saturday (July 17).
The two say ‘I do’ at the home they share near Nashville amongst some of their closest friends and family, according to People. They decided upon their own residence as the wedding venue of choice as they both love where they live and wanted to extend the welcome to their special guests.
While Bones opted for a sleek tuxedo-style look complete with a bowtie and his signature glasses, Parker stunned in her intricately-designed gown with a sheer skirt and plunging neckline. The couple was glowing throughout the night, in which Bones said was the best one he has ever had.
“Greatest night of my life . 💍 ❤️ 👰♀️. Love you @caitcparker – 📸 @charlastorey,” the American Idol host captioned the Instagram carousel of photos from the big day.
There were a few famous faces from the country music industry in the crowd–Dan + Shay serenaded the bride and groom during their first dance song, which happened to be the Full House version of “Forever” originally recorded by the Beach Boys. According to People, Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts busted out his gorgeous vocals on the band’s hit singles, “God Bless the Broken Road” and “Fast Cars and Freedom, followed by Ronnie Dunn singing Brooks and Dunn’s “Neon Meon.”
Other notable guests include friends of the couple like Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen and former professional tennis player Andy Roddick.
The couple called upon several Nashville vendors for the celebration, but one detail that stood out the most was the pop-up Sonic Drive-In catering. The fast food chain represented the time that Bones, whose legal last name is Estell, and Parker were trying to figure out if their relationship was worth the distance.
“When she was coming from Los Angeles to Nashville and I would pick her up at the airport, I would go by Sonic and get her drinks first. It was like, ‘Hey, you just flew for five hours. This is an odd thing I’m doing because I’m trying to show you how much I care about you, but I don’t really know how to express human emotions.’ So to have that as a big part of our wedding means a lot to us,” Bones explained to People.
Bones and Parker started dating long-distance after meeting at a taping for Dancing With the Stars as Bones was there to cheer Lauren Alaina on and Parker was with a friend who was in the public relations department at the time. The two dated long-distance until the pandemic, in which Parker moved into Bones’ bachelor pad during quarantine.
The country radio host popped the question to his lovely lady on October 11 during a secret proposal in the backyard barn.
