What could more fitting for a country star’s “I dos” than a rustic Nashville wedding? Sounds perfect, right? Well, it pretty much was! Last month, country singer Tyler Farr wed his sweetheart, Hannah Freeman, in a countryside ceremony and the newly-released wedding photos have us dreaming of sunflower bridal bouquets and grooms in cowboy boots.
On the big day, Farr and Freeman headed to Tennessee’s Mint Springs Farm for their rustic and romantic nuptials. “Tyler and I are both laid back and we don’t like fancy things, so we wanted something that represented us and that wasn’t too far from our house,” the bride explained to People magazine. “We wanted things to be simple and intimate.” And that’s exactly the vibe we’re getting from the just-released wedding day pics — from the outdoor venue to Freeman’s wedding dress. “I’ve never been the type of girl to dream about my wedding day, ever and I never picked out wedding dresses before I was engaged. I wanted something simple and classic,” Freeman said of her Stella York lace wedding dress with its non-fussy silhouette and sweetheart neckline. Meanwhile, the groom and his groomsmen all donned grey suits accessorized with yellow-hued boutonnieres for their walk down the aisle.
After the couple said their “I dos” in the venue’s open-air, vine-adorned pavilion, the wedding party headed inside for dining and dancing — including the coolest first dance, like, ever. Farr earned himself MAJOR points with his new wife when he secretly recruited pal Brad Paisley to become a wedding singer for the night and perform for their first dance (video above). The plan was actually set into motion a week ahead of the big day when Farr was on tour with Paisley and heard a sneak peek of Paisley’s new single, “Today.”

“I was on his bus and he showed me the video and I just teared up,” Farr told People. “I’m very blunt and I was like, ‘That song was amazing and I want to surprise my fiancé with something really special. Would you come and play this song for our first dance?'” And he did! Paisley appeared at the wedding reception to sing the romantic tune for the couple’s first spin around the dance floor. “She had no idea,” Farr said. “It was so cool of Brad to take the time to do that. He’s a good friend and a great guy.”
“She is beautiful anyway, but there she is in a white dress and Brad is singing those lyrics and it hit me and I got emotional!” the groom continued, remembering the magical moment. “The tears were pretty visible.”
Like the ones we’re crying right now, Tyler?!
