Country singer Kellie Pickler and her new husband Kyle Jacobs surprised everyone when they secretly got married January 1, 2011, and photos of the lovely bride and groom are now emerging.
Pickler, 24, and Jacobs, 37, who had been engaged since June 2010 and were in the midst of planning their elaborate wedding, suddenly eloped on New Year’s Day in a “small, intimate ceremony on a private island in the Caribbean.”
When asked why they eloped, Pickler said, “When two people get married, it’s not about the glamour. It’s about the bride and groom and God.”
“We didn’t have anything but us and God and our minister,” Pickler says of the ceremony, “and I can’t think of a word that can quite describe how perfect it was.”
