Wynonna Judd Weds Cactus Moser
Ceremony Was Held At Her Farm Near Nashville
Wynonna Judd married musician Cactus Moser in a sunset wedding June 10 on her farm in Leiper’s Fork, Tenn., reports Us Weekly, which also has exclusive pictures of her dress made by Nashville seamstress Houri Barahimi, a native of Iran. Judd, 48, decided to forego shoes for her third trip down the aisle.
Moser, a former member of late ’80s/early ’90s hit making country group Highway 101, is now a drummer in Judd’s touring band, The Big Noise. The 55-year-old musician was “cowboy chic” in a tuxedo, which he accessorized with a vest, pocket watch and holster, according to Us Weekly, which unhelpfully fails to indicate whether the holster contained a firearm.
“I felt a joy that hasn’t been there before,” Judd tells Us about the intimate event, where attendees included her kids from her first marriage, Grace, 16, and Elijah, 17. Surprisingly (and sadly), the bride’s sister Ashley Judd and mom Naomi Judd did not attend the wedding.
Judd and Moser, who have been dating since 2009, announced their engagement last December. Judd divorced her second husband, her former bodyguard D.R. Roach, after four years in 2007, and split from first husband, businessman Arch Kelley III, in 1998. Kelley is the father of her children.
