Meghan Linsey married her long-time love Tyler Cain on Sunday.
The Voice season 8 runner-up eloped in an exchange of vows at Ironwoods Beach in Lahaina on Maui, Hawaii, reports People magazine.
A company, Simply Eloped, planned the event. Who knew that event planners existed to help couples elope. It’s kind of an oxymoron, no? Once upon a time, a couple would run off to Vegas and tie the knot in five minutes at some Elvis wedding chapel, or something. But now, it takes some planning to elope!
The idea of a company like Simply Eloped, is to plan a small wedding at the last minute. The wedding came together in a week after the two decided not to wait any longer to get married.
“It was so easy. We decided to elope one week before our big day, so I did a Google search and found them,” Meghan told People. “They took care of every detail, from permit for the location, flowers, officiant, photographer, videographer… literally everything. It was so nice because I didn’t have to really do much except pick the location and flowers I wanted!”
“We are just so excited to finally be married,” Cain shared with People. “We’ve been together for 10 years in March and we are more in love now than we’ve ever been. We just knew if we don’t do it now, then when? With COVID, it’s so hard to know when it would be a good time to have a large gathering. We love our family and friends so much and don’t want to put anyone at risk.”
Meghan wore a custom Olia Zavozina gown, which was designed two years ago after the couple first got engaged. Getting the right fit, Meghan said, was “really important” to her.
At the ceremony, a ukulele player performed an instrumental version of the song “Has Anybody Ever Told You,” written by Cain. The song appeared on Ashley Monroe’s Grammy-nominated album The Blade in 2015, and Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd used it for their own first dance at their 2018 wedding.
“We decided to release an acoustic duet version because it’s such a special song,” Cain said. “It’s like our song to each other for our wedding day.”
The couple got engaged while shooting a music video in Alaska in June 2019. The two originally planned to wed in April 2020, but pushed it back after the pandemic struck a mere weeks before the planned ceremony.
