Crystal Bowersox married musician Brian Walker in Chicago today. She announced the nuptials via twitter:
People magazine announces the wedding HERE. Read details below:
“Our lives have never made more sense than they do right now, ” Bowersox tells PEOPLE. “I can’t believe how incredibly lucky we are to have found so much laughter, love, and light within each other. We’re one happy WalkerSox family.”
Bowersox, 25, wore an Earth-friendly hemp and cotton gown from Vermont designer Tara Lynn that features macramé, seashell and bead detailing and was created in the designer’s solar-powered studio.
Their rings were designed by Walker and crafted by Chicago’s Traci Coughlin and Steve Quick Jewelers. The ceremony was held at the club where they couple met during Open Mic Night six years ago.
Among the 60 friends and family in attendance were Bowersox’s son Tony, 1 1/2, from a previous relationship, who served as ring bearer and wore a suit by LinenKids; Season 9 Idol contestant Didi Benami; and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor Lance Barber. The ceremony was led by the right reverend Michael Teach from Chicago Acoustic Underground.
Crystal Bowersox announced her sudden engagement last month to People magazine. It was a surprise to her fans–she had broken up with her boyfriend Tony just 4 months before on the day of the Idol final performance.
But as it turns out, Crystal and her new fiance, Brian had known each other from the Chicago club scene for years.
“Hilarious that people think Brian and I just met, ” said Crystal, ” He’s been a best friend for years…” Brian gave her the nickname “Mamasox” after her son was born.
