Country Star Ties The Knot In Gorgeous Texas Wedding


A year-long engagement ended in a stunning Texas ceremony that all of their friends and family were able to attend – and the pictures prove it was just as stunning as you’d imagine!

This Texas-born country music singer and his longtime girlfriend got engaged back in 2017 and are parents to 14-month-old daughter Emery – a bright light in their life that nearly stole the show at her parent’s wedding!

Josh Abbott and Taylor Parnell welcomed more than 200 of their friends and family to join them for one of the biggest days of their lives at this stunning Austin, Texas venue.

“Taylor was born and raised in Austin. Her grandparents are influential in her life and we didn’t want to make them travel for a destination wedding. Ultimately, the convenience and proximity of a wedding in downtown Austin was too good to pass up,” Josh Abbott explained to People in a new interview.

Our wedding planning process typically starts the same way. A potential client reaches out, we have an in office or phone meeting and in that initial meeting, we both decide if we are a fit for each other. It’s a big decision! ?Wedding planning is exciting, emotional, fun and well, it can be a lot. When Taylor and Josh first came in to meet with me I’d be lying if I’d say I thought Josh was 100% on board with me planning. To say he was a tad reserved is an understatement. But, over the past 6 months, I have had the pleasure to get to work really closely with Taylor and Josh, and let me tell you: they are the real deal y’all! Both of them are sweet, kind, trusting and fun! Another first for me is getting a text from a groom saying “Becky, I’m writing a song to sing at the wedding.” Their love is genuine and Josh is smitten! Xoxo congrats to you both Josh and Tay ?- Becky. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #austinweddingplanner #southernweddings #texaswedding #texasbride #bridesofaustin #atxwedding #atxeventplanner #austinwedding #austinwedding #weddingphotography #partyplanner #wedding #austinweddingvendor #atxweddingvendor #austinweddingplanning #pearleventsatx #atxweddingplanner #atxweddings #austinweddingphotography #austinweddingphotographer #taylormadeforabbott #braveadventures #brazoshall #brazoshallwedding #ceremonyintheround

The groom and his groomsmen all were decked out in stunning tuxedos and looked quite dapper when posing for a photo they shared to the band’s Instagram page. Abbott included his brother and several bandmates in the party of groomsmen.

Together, Abbott, Parnell, and their baby girl Emery walked down the aisle after the couple had said their vows. In a post-wedding photo, the bride and groom stood in front of a massive buffet chest and antique mirror in a photo that simply oozes glamour.
