Scotty McCreery and his longtime girlfriend, Gabi Dugal, got married on Saturday.
In front of over 200 friends and family, the couple said "I do" in the mountains of North Carolina. The ceremony was officiated by McCreery’s childhood pastor and followed a jam-packed weekend of activities, including a Cajun-style shrimp boil, a nod to the bride's roots, on Thursday night.
The happy couple shared their first dance to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” The reception food included Cajun dishes, steak and pasta. Instead of a traditional large wedding cake, the couple served an assortment of pies.
Scotty McCreery says this about his wife,
“Met her in kindergarten. Her name’s ‘Guh-bee.’ It’s like Gabi. But her family’s from Louisiana, so they’re Cajun, so it’s ‘Guh-bee.” And she’s got Mrs. Gabi McCreery written in hearts all over her kindergarten diary. Pretty cool. So, it’s just one of those things. If you don’t believe in fate, just check that out.”
They're heading off to Tahiti on Tuesday for their honeymoon.
It's crazy to think that they met in kindergarten! Scotty isn't a big fan of cake. He loves pies -- so it makes sense that they had pies for dessert. All Gabi wanted for their honeymoon was an over-water bungalow, so that's what she's getting.
