Scotty McCreery married his longtime girlfriend, Gabi Dugal, Saturday. His childhood pastor officiated the ceremony in the North Carolina mountains.
Scotty and Gabi, (a nurse at Duke University Hospital) dated for six years before Scotty proposed last September. Scotty immortalized their engagement in his song, “This Is It” from his latest album, “Seasons Change.”
The couple tied the knot in front of more than 200 friends and family members, exchanging personalized wedding vows. Gabi wore a romantic wedding gown by bridal designer Morilee. Scotty’s dad was his best man. The newlyweds danced their first dance to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love.” The reception included Cajun dishes to honor Gabi’s Louisiana roots, and they served an assortment of pies instead of a traditional wedding cake.
The new Mr. and Mrs. McCreery will leave tomorrow (Tuesday) for a honeymoon in Tahiti before returning to the states and moving into their new home.
