On the menu: good ol' fashioned country grub – served family style! Guests shared pulled pork, biscuits and macaroni 'n' cheese. Instead of a cake, the couple served banana pudding!

The reception – held in the sand pit where Paisley trains his horses – was equally low-key, with music provided by a local country band and guests sipping whiskey-based cocktails. "He allows me to laugh at myself and calms me down," gushed Williams of Dodson, whom she calls her "best friend." "He puts things in perspective."
