Country musician marries former news anchor in Tennessee Farm Wedding

Congratulations are in order for Jason Albers! The Flatland Cavalry drummer is a newly married man after he and his fiancée Elizabeth Pace tied the knot at Allenbrooke Farms in Spring Hill, Tennessee earlier this month. The couple said “I do” on July 23 after six years of dating, with friends Dylan and Alexis Wright officiating the ceremony.

For her grand walk down the aisle, Pace, a former KLBK News broadcast reporter, donned a dress by Suzanne Neville London at Marie Gabriel Couture Bridal. She accessorized the look with a traditional “something old,” which was particularly prominent. The bride revealed to PEOPLE that she wore a pearl bracelet that her grandmother, mother and sister all wore on their wedding day. Albers, meanwhile, wore a black tuxedo.

The couple exchanged vows in front of a crowd of guests that included friends and family from Texas, where Albers’ family lives, and Indiana, where Pace is from. Although the couple did not write their own vows, they did write letters to each other which they shared just before the ceremony. Pace told PEOPLE of the Letters, “We wrote letters to each other that we read separately right before the ceremony. I think it gave us a chance to be really vulnerable, and it felt more intimate.”

After swapping a pair of wedding rings they bought at Koerber’s Fine Jewelry – Albers revealing the shop is “where his dad bought his mom’s wedding ring, his brother-in-law bought his sister’s wedding ring and his brother bought his sister-in-law’s wedding ring” – the couple joined their guests for a reception with a feast that included barbecue chicken, potatoes and donuts from Nashville’s Five Daughters Bakery. After the crowd cleared for the night, the newlyweds shared a special moment by sharing a private dance to Stevie Wonder’s “I Just Called to Say I Love You,” a song that Pace says was ” special for” them since always since her husband sent it to her for the first time at the beginning of their relationship.

The late-July nuptials came six years after Albers and Pace first met at a local bar in Lubbock, Texas, in 2016, where Albers performed with his band. After one show, Pace shared that Albers “found me after the show, and the rest is history.” Now married, Albers and Pace are celebrating their honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and Pace shares, “I’m so excited to start our life together.”
