Jake Owen Weds (Barefoot) In Florida Beach Ceremony
Singer Tweets “My Face Hurts From Smiling”
After a very brief engagement, Jake Owen model girlfriend Lacey Buchanan got married Monday morning at a sunrise ceremony on a beach in the groom’s hometown of Vero Beach, Fla., according to People.com and the artist’s own Twitter posts. Owen proposed to Buchanan on stage at one of his shows just last month.
Yesterday Owen, 30, tweeted this wedding photo and the message, “A best friend for life. I now have a wifey :) My face hurts from smiling. What a wonderful way to start the rest of my life.”
The couple met when Buchanan, 22, appeared in Owen’s music video for “8 Second Ride” and began dating after she starred in the video for his hit “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” according to People.
The bride wore an Amsale gown and veil and the groom was clad in a white linen Armani shirt and Tommy Bahama drawstring pants. Both were barefoot.
Owen tells People the sunrise ceremony was his idea because “it’s symbolic of the dawn of a new day and starting our new life together.”
The ceremony was a family-only affair. Lacey’s sister Leah was her maid of honor, and Jake’s twin brother Jarrod served as best man. His uncle, Ron Owen, officiated, People reports.
After the couple exchanged vows and their first kiss, the party walked to the patio of the Vero Beach Hotel and Spa for a brunch reception.
“I’m looking forward to being a husband, someone his wife relies and leans on,” Owen told People.
