When it came to planning their wedding day, Hayley Williams and Chad Gilbert made sure every detail had a personal touch.

Over the weekend, the Paramore singer, 27, and the New Found Glory guitarist, 34, exchanged vows in front of their family and friends – including their bandmates, of course – at The Franklin Theatre in Tennessee.

“The Theatre holds a very special place in Hayley’s heart,” her rep tells PEOPLE. “She and her bandmates helped contribute (along with others in the community) to the restoration and re-opening after it shut down.”

The newlyweds also hired local vendors – like Puckett’s Grocery and Restaurant for catering – to “highlight their favorite things about living in Nashville,” adds the rep.

Williams wore a custom Vera Wang tulle and geometric lace skirt ball gown with a classic corset detail bodice accented by hand appliqué Chantilly lace at the neckline, and stayed true to her rocker style by pairing it with Doc Marten Jadon Boots. The groom wore an outfit by Ben Sherman and sneakers.

At the reception, the couple’s guests danced to live music by Anthony Adams and The Nite Owls, and Williams and Gilbert sliced into a tiered wedding cake by Five Daughters Bakery. They also served donuts by the bakery that featured quotes like “I like your butt” and “You’re so punk rock.”
