Lancaster tied the knot with Tiffany in September 2017 during an intimate sunset ceremony outside Nashville, Tennessee, surrounded by 200 of their closest family and friends, a rep for the singer told PEOPLE in a statement.

The ceremony was filled with personal touches throughout. Tiffany walked down the aisle to Coldplay's "Til Kingdom Come," while Brandon stood next to his groomsmen including LANCO bandmates Chandler Baldwin, Jared Hampton, Tripp Howell and Eric Steedly.

The pair revealed their pregnancy news exclusively to PEOPLE in April, with the then-dad-to-be admitting, "I've had these incredible experiences, but I can honestly say I don't know if I've ever had anticipation and excitement for something as much as I've had for that day when [my daughter is] actually here."

"So that's been a really crazy emotion, to think that all these different things in my life that I've anticipated, I haven't really anticipated anything more than this. It's actually been really cool and grounding," Lancaster added.

The crooner was excited that his daughter was due right around the couple's three-year wedding anniversary — something he joked felt like "karma," as he was born on his own parents' first wedding anniversary.

"They spent all their anniversaries at Chuck E. Cheese and laser tag," he told PEOPLE with a laugh. "It would be kind of karma if our anniversary also ended up being a birthday party for the foreseeable future."

As far as how he thought he'd be as a dad, Lancaster was "so excited" and just "taking it one day at a time," trusting in the process and looking forward to "seeing the different ways" his daughter "takes after both of" her parents.

And amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the singer said it has made him and Tiffany "step back and realize what's really important in life" — namely family. "I think it's actually laying a cool foundation for the kind of parents we want to be — realizing that, at the end of the day, you have each other," he explained. "You have your family. And that's the most important thing."
