RaeLynn weds Josh Davis

Singer Raelynn has married her boyfriend Josh Davis in front of family and celebrity friends, including Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani.

The 21-year-old former The Voice contestant, who was mentored by country star Blake, wed her financial adviser fiance in a ceremony in Franklin, Tennessee, on Saturday (27Feb16).


The couple exchanged vows in front of 300 guests, and RaeLynn had 17 bridesmaids who were all wearing white, while Josh's groomsmen wore three-piece charcoal suits, Entertainment Tonight reports.


Guests, including Blake and Gwen, were asked to wear black tie attire to the wedding at a friend's 200-acre plantation. They also feasted on traditional Southern fare, including BBQ chicken, corn cakes, shrimp and grits.


RaeLynn, who shot to fame after competing on The Voice in 2012, posted a photo on Instagram.com early on Saturday, showing the bridal party getting ready. "It takes a village," she wrote.


The country singer later shared images with her new husband in two sweet snaps on Instagram, including a touching photo of the newlyweds embracing. "Today was a fairytale," she posted.


After her time on The Voice, RaeLynn remained close to mentor Blake and his now ex-wife, Miranda Lambert. "I talk to both of them," she told Entertainment Tonight after the pair split last year (15). "It's all about when you find the right person, you gotta kinda go with it."


It was reported that Miranda was invited to the ceremony on Saturday, but did not attend.


Blake chose to bring new girlfriend Gwen to the wedding, and RaeLynn revealed that she thinks the pair are "awesome". "They're both great people," she added.


RaeLynn met new husband Josh in church four years ago, and the couple got engaged just four months ago in October (15). He led the country singer on a scavenger hunt around Belmont University in Nashville before he popped the question. "Can't believe I get to marry my best friend," she said at the time.
