Nashville, TN, United States (4E) – Hayley Williams, the vocalist of Paramore, and the guitarist for New Found Glory, Chad Gilbert, have tied the knot on Saturday.

According to reports, the 27-year-old singer and the 34-year-old guitarist wed at the Franklin Theater in Nashville. The two first dated back in 2008 and got engaged last December 2014. They applied for a marriage license in Tennessee last January.

Several of the witnesses, family and friends, as well as fans documented some of the captured moments during the couple’s big day. The photos uploaded were from the wedding ceremony and the reception.

The bride and the groom were seen in one photo exchanging vows in front of around 50 people inside the theater. They were also photographed in one snap dancing and kissing. Williams wore a white chiffon wedding dress while Gilbert wore an all-black suit.

In the other snaps posted on social media, it showed the wedding cake of the newly married couple and them feeding each other a slice of the baked goodie. In a post by the official Twitter page of Hopeless Records, the label of New Found Glory, they showed a photo of Williams and Gilbert outside a Nashville restaurant. The two were greeting fans awaiting their arrival. Williams was seen wearing a plaid skirt and a white T-shirt that has her husband’s name written on it. The caption reads: “Congratulations Chad & Hayley!!!”

Williams also posted updates on her Instagram page. At one point, she posted a photo of them dancing and wrote in the caption: “If anyone is blocking or unfollowing me for posting wedding updates go ahead. because if these weren't meant to be viewed the people who took them would of been alot more careful about it. It was obvious that they would be leaked at some point so stop causing trouble and let hayley and chad be happy. #hayleywilliams.”
