Country singers Kylie Morgan and Jay Allen said “I do” on Sunday in Fort Myers, Florida, after having to postpone their dream September wedding when the area was decimated by Hurricane Ian. According to People, the couple wed at La Casa Toscana in front of 85 family members and friends.
"With our busy schedules and hectic lifestyles, there was honestly never an ideal moment to say, 'I do,'" Morgan told People. "I took one week off the (Tyler Rich) tour to travel to Southwest Florida to get married and a few days later, I have to be right back in Seattle."
However, it wasn’t smooth sailing this time, either. Morgan said on Instagram that they forgot to get their marriage license.
"Fun fact: Yesterday was our wedding day ... but we're actually not married yet, because we forgot to get our license! We're gonna go get married now."
She later posted a video of herself holding the piece of paper. She said the moment is worth the wait.
"I was the girl who swore she would never get married because I was already married to my dreams," said the “If He Wanted To He Would” singer. "Being an independent woman pursuing her dreams, I always felt as if I had to apologize or dim my ambition for the sake of my relationships. With Jay, I never had to explain myself, apologize, or pull back from my goals. He supported my independence all while standing next to me as my biggest supporter."
The couple got matching tattoos to symbolize their union. They were inked with upside down triangles, which People reports is a reference to Morgan’s hometown in Oklahoma, Allen’s hometown in Iowa and where the couple lives now in Nashville. The design was also worked into the wedding in other areas.
"It was important to us that our wedding felt unique and non-traditional and accurately represented who we are, not only as individuals, but also what we embody as a couple," Morgan told People. “Our lives and relationship are extremely public, so it was very special to share such an intimate moment between the two of us," Morgan said of her and Allen's first look, in which Allen met his bride wearing a tux provided by The Black Tux. "It will be something we remember for the rest of our lives."
