The bride wore white. The groom wore a baseball cap.

On Sunday, country star Rodney Atkins, 44, married singer-songwriter Rose Falcon on the beach of Captiva Island, Fla.

The couple exchanged vows in front of 20 guests. Atkins’s son Elijah was the best man. The wedding was officiated by Charles Hutchins, the founder of the children’s home where Atkins spent his infancy before being adopted by Allen and Margaret Atkins.

The ceremony was the end of a family weekend on Captiva, an island in southwest Florida. The day before the wedding, the couple’s friends and family went fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.

During the ceremony, the couple also celebrated the 51st wedding anniversary of Atkins’s parents. They presented his mother with a three-carat aquamarine ring.

According to Atkins’s rep, Falcon crafted many of the wedding decorations herself. Each female guest received a handmade bracelet; each male guest received a custom hat to match the baseball cap worn by Atkins.

This is the second marriage for Atkins. In 2011, he filed for divorce from first wife Tammy Jo amid accusations of domestic violence. He was cleared of all charges.

Atkins and Falcon have since returned to their home in Nashville. Although they haven’t planned a post-wedding trip, they said in a statement, “Our life is a honeymoon.”
