Greeneville, Tenn., is about four hours east of Nashville. But after Thursday's (June 12) star-studded wedding, you'd think Greeneville was the heart of Music City.

All kinds of country stars were among the intimate crowd when The Band Perry's Kimberly Perry wed pro baseball player J.P. Arencibia. According to the local newspaper, Greeneville Sun, Arencibia walked Perry out the doors of Christ Chapel at Greeneville's First Presbyterian Church. And after that, the bride and groom and all the guests went to the Perry family's home for a reception and late dinner.
Even though Greeneville is a small town and off the beaten path, that didn't stop fans from trying to get a glimpse of Perry in her stunning white wedding gown (and seriously gorgeous ankle-strap shoes). Perry's dress was an off-the-shoulder full-length gown with a beaded bodice and a full skirt with a train. Her hair was in loose waves, and while a handful of umbrellas obscured the photographs, it also looks like she was wearing a white veil.
The Greeneville Sun estimated about 200 fans gathered on the sidewalk outside the church before the ceremony started. They also reported that the Perrys -- Dr. and Mrs. Steve Perry and siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry -- kept the wedding date and hour a closely-guarded secret for months.
Stars like Carrie Underwood, Mike Fisher, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton reportedly stayed at the town's historic General Morgan Inn -- a small luxury hotel -- across the street from the chapel.
