And this past Saturday, March 19, that's exactly what God gave them. "The weather was absolutely perfect," raved Tolman, 26, in an interview with PEOPLE following her Jackson, Wyoming wedding to Brainard. "The sun was out and there were no clouds covering the Tetons. The day before, it snowed in Jackson, so we had a beautiful fresh layer of snow. It was the most perfect weather you could ask for!" Jenny Tolman and Dave Brainard Wedding Photos.

Their wedding serves as yet another stunning chapter in a love story that was forever cemented back in September of 2015, when Brainard was brutally attacked and left for dead on the streets of Nashville. As Brainard recuperated from a broken jaw, a mouth full of shattered teeth and multiple facial lacerations, he and Tolman discovered that they were destined to become more than friends.

Molly Stevens of For the West and Wild Photography "I think we both knew for a while that we had very intense feelings for each other, but we never expressed them," remembers Tolman. "But, as soon as I found out about Dave's attack, I knew that he was my person. It really was that indescribable moment of just knowing. I felt the overwhelming need to be near him and make sure he was OK." Left for Dead, Nashville Producer Dave Brainard Finds Love in the Arms of Singer Jenny Tolman "And from the very first kiss, it was obvious to me that we were inseparable," remembers Brainard, who proposed to Tolman last October after six years of dating.

"I rode in on an emerald green Cadillac with longhorns on the front," laughs Tolman of her own set of wheels. "It was even warm enough outside to put the top down. I rode in sitting on top of the backseat with my veil and train draped over the entire back of the car." Jenny Tolman and Dave Brainard Wedding Photos.

"I absolutely loved the high neckline detail on this dress," says Tolman, who worked alongside wedding planner Morgan Edge from Lisa Mack Events to create her dream day. "This dress is never something I would've pictured going for, but I just felt so regal and special in it." Jenny Tolman and Dave Brainard Wedding Photos.

"I really like tradition when it comes to such meaningful events as this, so we have the classic bridal march and wedding march being played for the ceremony," said Tolman, whose flowers were from Shania Jensen from Historia Florals. "I just think it makes the event feel so classy and elegant, and something about real strings playing those traditional pieces makes it feel like we are in a historical moment that much more."

Once there, guests enjoyed a reception filled with a wide array of foods from Palate catering, including Korean beef bulgogi in honor of Brainard's late mother. For dessert, guests enjoyed a gluten-free cake created by baker Lauren Estay Langer from Seven Confections in Teton Valley. Jenny Tolman and Dave Brainard Wedding Photos.

And as DJ Wante from Level Up Entertainment provided the tunes, Tolman got ready for the traditional garter toss. Jenny Tolman and Dave Brainard Wedding Photos. Molly Stevens of For the West and Wild Photography There was just one problem. "I had forgotten to even put the garter on," recalled Tolman with a laugh. "So, I decided to have one of my bridesmaids cut the ribbon from my bouquet and tie it around my thigh for a makeshift garter. It worked perfectly." Following the reception, guests were treated to an afterparty at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, the exact location where Tolman played a sold-out show just two nights before. "I changed into a white jumpsuit and Dave and I put on our cowboy hats and took pictures in front of the bar with it all lit up," says Tolman, who recently released her sophomore album Married in a Honky Tonk and shot the video for the namesake single in the bar.

"I'm excited to have a partner for life to do everything with," said Tolman. "Not only have my best friend by my side, but also my favorite creative brain in the whole world to make music with forever!" Jenny Tolman and Dave Brainard Wedding Photos.

"More than anything, I'm excited about having a family, especially knowing the kind of person who their mother is going to be," Brainard said.
