Tennison Weds

Country star Chalee Tennison married her guitar player, Mark Gillespie, on Saturday (Nov. 10) during a ceremony in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. The wedding was Tennison’s fourth walk down the aisle; the first for the groom. “This feels like the first time for me,” Tennison said in a statement. “Some people have said that I must be in love with being in love — but, as you grow and learn from your past, hopefully you make better decisions and this one feels really right. I am truly blessed!” The couple dated for three years. Tennison’s six-year-old son, Tyler, walked his mother down the aisle. The singer’s daughters Tiffany, 15, and Haley, 10, served as her maids of honor. Country singer Paul Brandt serenaded the couple with his hit song, “I Do.” The newlyweds are celebrating by spending a few days in the Smoky Mountains. They plan to take a longer honeymoon at a later date. 11/12/01
