Love and Theft singer Stephen Barker Liles is man enough to admit it: The moment he first saw his bride Jenna Kennedy in her gown, he shed a few tears.

“She looked so incredible,” the singer, 30, tells PEOPLE Country of their Aug. 24 wedding in Nashville. “Of course I cried! I’m very emotional!”

The wedding was a mixture of traditional (Liles’s dad officiated) and unconventional (bride and groom walked out to Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train”).

And some of the 200-plus guests teared up as well when the couple honored their 9-month-old son, Jett (wearing an outfit that matched his dad’s: suspenders and rolled-up trousers sans socks), with a baby dedication during the ceremony.

Liles’s Love and Theft bandmate Eric Gunderson, who’s been married four years himself, believes the newlyweds already have this marriage thing down.

“I don’t think they need my advice,” he says. “They’re so in love with each other and their baby.”
