Bobby Bones wed his fiancé Caitlin Parker got married on Saturday (June 17) at their Nashville area home.
The American Idol mentor and Dancing with the Stars winner told People magazine why the couple chose to marry at home. “We love home. We picked this place out together — that was really one of the first decisions that we made as a couple. And so she thought, ‘What if we got married here?'”
According to People, the groomsmen walked down the aisle to the theme from The Office. Retired tennis pro Andy Roddick and the couple’s two dogs, Stanley and Eller, were part of the wedding party.
The two wrote their own vows and were married by Caitlin’s childhood minister.
Wedding duds featured a a custom suit with bow tie by Alton Lane for Bobby and a Galia Lahav gown for Caitlin. “It was probably the third dress that I tried on, and I knew it immediately. I had five girls [including bridesmaids Abby Smyers and Bobby Bones Show personality Amy Brown] with me and three of them started crying!” said Caitlin about finding the perfect dress.
Bobby was so superstitious about seeing the dress ahead of time, Caitlin joked that “He doesn’t even want me to say the word ‘dress.’ He won’t look at my phone — he’s afraid a picture will pop up. He won’t go into the closet where it’s hanging, even though you can’t see it.”
Wedding guests included a slew of country stars
After the ceremony, wedding guests including the country radio DJ’s pals Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Chuck Wicks and radio personality Charlamagne Tha God — enjoyed a cocktail hour with appetizers passed on marble trays in the shape of the couple’s home states of Arkansas and Oklahoma.
The newly married couple were officially introduced as “Mr. and Mrs. Bobby Estell” under a tent, before dinner and dancing. Country stars Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay then took the stage to sing the couple’s first dance song — the Jesse and the Rippers version of The Beach Boys’ “Forever” from Full House.
Additionally, Gary LeVox serenaded the crowd with Rascal Flatts’ hits “Bless the Broken Road” and “Fast Cars and Freedom” while Ronnie Dunn performed the Brooks & Dunn classic “Neon Moon” as a light-up moon was lowered from the ceiling as a surprise for the newlyweds.
The night ended with a Sonic Drive-in pop up that served fast food to the couple and their guests.
Bobby and Caitlin met a few months before the pandemic started in 2020. She moved to Nashville from Los Angeles to “ride things out.” She planned to only a stay a week, but ultimately never returned to live in California.
