Country music singer-songwriter Brett Young‘s wife Taylor Mills Young first caught Brett’s attention in 2008 when Taylor was a student at Arizona State University. After a long courtship the two got quietly engaged and shared their happy news in early 2018.
The California native decided to pop the question in Oxford, Mississippi— the home of his alma mater, the University of Mississippi. “We met a little over 10 years ago in Scottsdale while she was at ASU and dated for a little over six years. After school, she and I both moved to Los Angeles together. When I moved to Nashville, we took a break for a few years, and I wrote a lot of my first record about her,” Young shared with PEOPLE in a past interview. He added, “There was never any bad blood; it was just the wrong time for us. We recently got back in touch and realized that we were both finally in the same place and knew it was right.”
Brett and Taylor’s big wedding ceremony took place on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at the Bighorn Golf Club in Palm Desert, California. According to PEOPLE, the pair wed in front of 200 guests which included Luke Combs, Lee Brice, and Gavin DeGraw. The three artists also performed during the wedding reception. Interestingly enough, the pair exchanged vows secretly beforehand.
“8.10.18 was the day I legally married my soulmate. We decided not to tell anyone we were married before our wedding day [with the exception of my sister because she’s the best secret keeper.] We didn’t want to take away from our wedding ceremony in November. Brett was home from the road for one day. We walked from our house down the street to the Rhinestone Wedding Chapel on music row in Nashville and just like that, a sweet little man married us,” Taylor explained on Instagram.

Reminiscing about 8.10.18, which will forever be one of the happiest and most special days of my life [swipe to see the video where I couldn’t stop giggling.] 8.10.18 was the day I legally married my soulmate. We decided not to tell anyone we were married before our wedding day [with the exception of my sister because she’s the best secret keeper.] We didn’t want to take away from our wedding ceremony in November. Brett was home from the road for one day. We walked from our house down the street to the Rhinestone Wedding Chapel on music row in Nashville and just like that, a sweet little man married us. We had passed this funny little chapel many, many times and never did I think I would get married there one day. After we got engaged we talked about getting legally married soon after. So of course we thought that getting married at the little chapel on music row was only fitting instead of at the courthouse. On 8.10.18, now married we left the Rhinestone Wedding Chapel hand in hand and realized that right next door was a poster commemorating Brett’s current #1 song, Mercy. It was a sign [no pun intended.] It was perfect. So, happy 1 year [and 1 month] to my perfect person. I’m so thankful that you’ve trusted me with your heart. I’m thankful for this life that we get to spend together. Together forever. From a cute guy I went on a first date with over 10 years ago, to my husband, my soulmate [and soon the father of my child.] From a crush, to a love I only dreamed could exist. From a friend to family. The story of us continues to grow perfectly and exactly the way god had planned. You’re my everything and my best friend and our journey has just begun. I love you and I’m SO blessed to be your wife and your forever. You fill my heart with so much love and my life with so much happiness. 1 year down, a lifetime to go. #”ItWasAPrettyFunDay” #ForeverYoungT+B 💒 👰🏻🤵🏼💗
