Dixie Chick Martie Seidel Weds

Dixie Chicks fiddler and vocalist Martie Seidel is now Martie Maguire. She married Irish college professor Gareth Maguire on Aug. 10 during an impromptu ceremony in Kailua, Hawaii, a spokeswoman announced Tuesday (Sept. 25). The couple became engaged in June while in Ireland. “We are planning a formal ceremony in Ireland next summer with our families,” Martie said in a news release. “It was so last minute that so many special people were not there to share it with us, but we just couldn’t wait!” The wedding took place at a home Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines and husband Adrian Pasdar had rented for the month. Maines and Martie’s sister and bandmate Emily Robison were among those who attended the ceremony. The bride and groom were barefoot when they traded vows. “It was very simple,” Martie said. “I did my own makeup and Natalie did my hair.” The Maguires will continue to reside in Texas. 09/25/01
