"American Idol" Season One Contestant Jim Verraros’ Wedding

He may not have won the top spot on season one of American Idol, but Jim Verraros has long been number one in the heart of Bill Brennan, who became the singer’s husband on September 6, 2009 after a four-year romance that began to blossom on MySpace.

Music is a driving force in the entertainer’s life, and on his wedding day the notes of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Air” floated on the breeze at the Oak Brook Hills Resort in Oak Brook, Illinois, guiding the performer along a path of white rose petals toward the man he loves. According to People magazine, 174 friends and family members looked on as the partners– standing amid fragrant arrangements of roses, orchids and white hydrangeas– expressed their love to one another with personalized vows.

At the reception, guests sampled slices of an Oak Mill Bakery cake embellished with vanilla buttercream icing as the newly wedded entertainer– looking dapper in his black Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo– swayed with his husband to the romantic refrain of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

Fausto Fernós and Marc Felion of offers fans a glimpse into the post-wedding festivities (including a look at the lion motif ice sculpture from Nadeau’s Ice Sculptures) in the following clip:
