Congratulations are in order for Scotty McCreery and new bride, Gabi Dugal. The couple wed in his home state of North Carolina on Saturday in front of 200 friends and family members,” People confirms.
The McCreery’s wed in the mountains of North Carolina, where Gabi wore a bridal gown by Morilee and Scotty’s dad Michael was his best man. Scotty and Gabi wrote their own vows for the ceremony, which was officiated by Scotty’s childhood pastor.
“I kept it very classic,” Gabi told People about her big day. “I went with greenery and white flowers, some lanterns and candle votives [for a] rustic feel. We fell in love with the mountains during the summertime, and our [venue] is like a little castle in the woods.”
The guests partied and dined on Cajun-style dishes of steak and pasta as the newlyweds danced their first dance to to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
Scotty proposed to his girlfriend of five years in Sept. 2017 at their favorite spot— the mountains of North Carolina near Grandfather Mountain. While the wedding went off without a hitch, Scotty admitted to One Country that the proposal was a bit awkward.
“It definitely wasn’t’ smooth by any means,” Scotty said. “I’m just an awkward dude in general. It’s just kind of who I am. So when you try to get down on one knee and realize you’re on two different rocks and you gotta figure out where the heck are ya gonna—it took like two tries to get on one knee. It was not smooth. But hey, she said yes and that’s all that matters.”
Congratulations to the happy couple.
