It's official! Carrie Underwood is now a Mrs. After weeks of speculation about when exactly her wedding would take place, the singer tied the knot with hockey star Mike Fisher Saturday night at a luxury resort outside of Atlanta, Georgia.
"Yes, Mike and Carrie are married," Underwood's publicist confirmed to the Associated Press early this morning.wedding details leaked on the web prior to the event panned out to be accurate. The date, July 10, was the most speculated-upon item. The location, the Ritz-Carlton Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, was another hotly discussed factor.
The pair married before 250 friends and family, including country-music luminaries Faith Hill and Garth Brooks--as well as American Idol judges Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, and Paula Abdul. The ceremony featured classical music and Bible verses. Underwood wore a chantilly lace gown created by Monique Lhuillier, who is noted for her lacy bridal designs.
In a statement to PEOPLE signed "Mike & Carrie Fisher," the newlyweds said: "We could not feel more blessed to have found each other and to have shared this day with our friends and family that mean so much to us!"
The Fishers are reportedly setting off for their honeymoon this morning--the locale of which is yet another detail of the event kept secret to the world at large. As with everything else surrounding the Fisher nuptials, however, gossips have attempted to figure it out, and have settled on Tahiti. The bride herself said last month, "I have no clue where we're going...I know it will be warm, that's it."
Underwood met Fisher in 2008. He proposed to her in December 2009.
