Randy Houser and Tatiana Starzynski celebrated their rustic and elegant wedding at the historic Homestead Manor in Thompson's Station, Tennessee on May 4.
Their Story Begins
"There was so much emotion, I couldn't contain it," says Houser, 40, of seeing his bride, 22, for the first time at the ceremony. "I just basically cried the whole time."
Saying 'I Do'
The couple exchanged traditional vows in front of 120 of their closest friends and family.
Embracing Married Life
The new Mr. and Mrs. Houser, clad in Dolce amp Gabbana and J'Aton Couture respectively, walked back down the aisle to Florida Georgia Line's ballad "H.O.L.Y."
Showers of Happiness
"Right as he said, 'You may now kiss your bride,' there were big claps of thunder and it poured down," says Tatiana. "It was a beautiful thing," adds Randy. "It was like the environment couldn't handle all the energy that was coming out of the place."
Where Southern and Elegance Meet
"I'm Southern and Tatiana's elegance," jokes Randy of the wedding's Southern elegance theme. Guests dined on traditional Southern fare served family style and sipped the groom's favorite Moscow mules. "Randy went and showed the bar staff how to make them his way," says Tatiana. "I thought that was pretty cool."
The Sweet Stuff
The five-tier, semi-naked wedding cake was pound cake with cream cheese filling.
The Groom's Men
"They're all like brothers to me," Houser says of fellow country artists (from left) Lee Brice, Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, Jamey Johnson, Dierks Bentley and Jerrod Niemann.
"It's so special to me to have West there," Randy told PEOPLE of having his 4-year-old son, West, from a previous marriage as ring bearer, along with their dog Hawk. "When I see Tatiana and West together, and I see the way they are with each other, it's just a special thing, the acceptance she's given me and given West as her stepson."
