It's a match made in pop-punk heaven! Hayley Williams (the lead singer of Paramore) wed her longtime boyfriend, Chad Gilbert (the guitarist of New Found Glory) on February 20th, and music label Atlantic Records is giving us an inside look at their fun rockabilly nuptials in Nashville, Tennessee.
The newlyweds said "I do" at the historic Franklin Theatre, which has special significance to the bride (she and her bandmates helped contribute to its restoration and re-opening, along with other members of the community). The couple's wedding was an homage to everything they love about living in Nashville, and all of their vendors were locally based.
Williams wore a fashion-forward short-sleeved Vera Wang dress with a transparent overlay skirt featuring geometric lace, which she paired with Doc Marten Jadon Boots. Ben Sherman provided the groom's attire. Later on, the bride changed into a reception outfit that was just as true to her rocker style: a UNIF top with her husband's name emblazoned across the front, a TOPSHOP skirt, Vans custom hi-tops and Stance socks.
The couple danced the night away with their wedding guests, including their bandmates, to the sounds of Anthony Adams and The Nite Owls. In another personal touch, they included their dog, Alf, in the wedding photos and festivities!
The pair ended the evening on a sweet note with a three-tiered wedding cake and 100 doughnuts, all by Five Daughters Bakery. Each doughnut included a cheeky quote, such as "I like your butt" and "You're so punk rock." Their cake toppers were equally adorable — the figurines depicted Leeloo from The Fifth Element and Sloth from The Goonies.
The two began dating in 2008 and got engaged in December 2014.
Congratulations to the happy newlyweds!
