Kellie Pickler was in the midst of planning a big Nashville wedding when she had a change of heart and realized she wanted to elope.
“When two people get married, it’s not about the glamour,” Pickler tells People.com. “It’s about the bride and groom and God.”
Pickler and her fiance Kyle Jacobs snuck away to Antigua on January 1 and were married on the beach with only their minister in attendance.
She wore an ivory duchess satin strapless Badgley Mischka wedding dress featuring a tulle ball gown skirt and crystal beaded accents on the train.
Of her wedding day, Pickler says, “I can’t think of a word that can quite describe how perfect it was.”
